    Basketball season is now in full swing across Gadsden county and West Gadsden High School is 3-0 under new head coach Gene Granger.

  • Salters says expectations are...

    Bo may know football and Bo may know baseball, but Dimitric Salters knows basketball. The "Bo" referred to of course is Bo Jackson, the multi-sport Heisman trophy winning athlete who played professional baseball and football. Bo may have been a pro at what he did, but you would have to look long and hard to find more of a pro than East Gadsden High School’s head basketball coach Dimitric Salters.

  • Bobcats end season with loss...

    The Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe Day School saw their season come to a close against the Eagles of Oak Hall in Gainesville by the score of 47-15. Fittingly, the game was played on Friday the 13th, with the Bobcats suffering several miscues against a 2-7 Eagle team that seemed to find the stride it had been looking for all season.

  • Panthers end season 0-10

    West Gadsden wrapped up the 2009 campaign last Friday night on the road against the Florida High Seminoles. The Panthers were looking to get off the snide and finish the season with a win in Tallahassee.

    It started the Panthers way as quarterback Carlton McWhite hit receiver Larico Dickey for a 60-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to give them the early lead.

  • Lady Cats expected to start next...

    After showing significant improvement from the first time the Robert F. Munroe volleyball team played nemesis John Paul II Catholic High School during the regular season, the team hoped that after four previous losses that the fifth time would be the charm. After all, the fifth meeting of the season between the two Class A schools was close by in Tallahassee and the winner earned a trip to the Region 1 finals and a possible state tournament berth.

  • Jags take big win on Senior...

    Head Coach Scott Anderson was in pain all day last Friday but not the pain of defeat since the East Gadsden High School Jaguars were coming off a win a week ago. Anderson was having stomach pains but he put them aside to take on Union County in this season’s final game.

    After the game the pain was worse and at around 2 a.m. he was taken to the hospital, where doctors discovered his appendix had burst, but not before his team burst the Union County Tigers’ hopes of a win.
