  • Girls hoops teams win some, lose...

    “Sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some” must have been the motto for all three county girls hoops teams last week as each suffered defeat but managed to pull it together to win another day.

    The Robert F. Munroe Lady Cats lost a blowout, played a close one and then blew out another in a complex week of basketball.  

  • Jags trample local competition

    The East Gadsden High School Jaguars’ season opener was played Dec. 1 against Jefferson County. The Jags came out on top of the Tigers, 84-58.

  • West Gadsden High undefeated in...

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

    Granger is a 1999 graduate of Florida High in Tallahassee and had a great career scoring over 1,200 points as a shooting guard and leading the 'Noles to two Final Four appearances. He went on to play one year at Tallahassee Community College before taking his talents to Charleston Southern University where he was the Buccaneers’ team captain as a junior and senior.

  • West Gadsden ladies pick up win

    In county basketball action last week, West Gadsden High School was the only team to pick up a win and the Panthers picked up two to move to 3-5 on the season.

  • 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.

  • Girls hoops action sees wins,...

    The East Gadsden High School girls basketball team scored 31 first half points en route to a 46-31 district defeat of Madison County.

    All three county girls teams lost their season openers this past week in the first week of FHSAA basketball. 

    The Robert F. Munroe Lady Cats opened their season first with a 45-37 loss to Maclay.  An anemic fourth quarter turned a 34-33 lead into an 8-point loss. 

    The score was knotted a 18 at the half.

    Sophomore Beth Summerford led her team with 13 points and point guard Kristen Allen was one assist from a triple double.  Allen had 12 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

  • 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.
