  • Red Birds pound Brewers in Big...

    The Chattahoochee Red Birds jumped off to an 8-0 first inning lead and went on to defeat the Bay County Brewers 11-4 in a Big Bend Adult Baseball League in Chattahoochee Sunday.

    Hits by Ben Young, Kyle Hanks, Mike Dolan and Austin Riano helped Chattahoochee to their big first inning. Young finished the game with three hits.

    Clay White pitch five innings to get the win. White gave up only one unearned run in his stint.

    The win kept Chattahoochee atop the Eastern Division of the league with a 3-1 record.

  • RFM tennis ends season on two...

    The Munroe tennis team finished up its regular season with two wins to propel the Lady Cats into the Class A District 2 tournament this week at Maclay 

    On Monday the team traveled to Tallahassee and defeated Chiles High School 6-1. The top four slots each won handily as did both doubles teams.  The girls dropped only the fifth spot. 

    Meg Summerford won in the one slot 6-1, 6-3, while her sister, Beth, won in the two slot 6-0, 6-0, followed by Anna Dooner in the third spot, who also won easily 6-1, 6-2. 

  • Excitement's on tap at RFM

    There's excitement on the campus at Robert F. Munroe Day School this spring – baseball excitement! The Bobcats have built themselves a 15-4 record at the week's beginning and a 20-win season is in no way out of the question.

    Head coach Mike Troblstrup, in his first year at the helm, has the team playing successful baseball.

    Troblstrup has coached the Lincoln JV team the past seven seasons.

    When the Munroe job came open he took a look at it and liked what he saw. The school liked what they saw in him and it's been a good match.

  • Off the Hook

    When I began to write my column this past January, never did I believe there would be a week when no reports of good catches of any type fish from Lake Talquin.

    Well, last week proved me wrong! Storms, winds and rain, rain and more rain stopped any hope of fishing. After all had passed we saw a very full and muddy lake. For the past four days normal conditions have returned and folks are back on the water.

    Reports of nice catches of bream and shellcrackers are being brought in at both Ingrams and Whippoorwill marinas.

  • Bobcats 3-2 following break

    The Robert F. Munroe Day School baseball team took a two-week break from the game before getting back into action April 4 in the Marianna Spring Classic.

    The Bobcats’ first game after the break saw the team lose to Freeport 7-1. Brock Hinson had two hits for Munroe in that contest.

    Munroe won its second game of the Classic, defeating Sneads 10-3 behind the four-hit pitching of Hinson. Hinson also fanned 10 batters in the contest and got offensive help from Parth Patel, who had four hits and Clay Kramm, who slapped two hits.

  • EGHS defeats JPII with mercy rule

    The East Gadsden High School Jaguars defeated John Paul II 14-4 in baseball last Tuesday in a mercy rule game.

    The Jaguars took advantage of nine walks and six Panther errors to collect the win.

    Cedric Akins was the winning pitcher, allowing only four hits and fanning two.

    Cameron Jackson drove in two runs and Zedrian Polk rapped a pair of hits.

    East Gadsden lost to FAMU High 8-6 Thursday in Tallahassee. Anthony Matthews and Zarian Polk each had hits for the Jaguars.

  • East Gadsden falls, RFM drops...

    East Gadsden High School’s softball team lost to a very strong Madison County team in five innings 18-0. 

    Madison pounded out 15 hits against pitcher Alexia Charlton.  Charlton struck out three and walked six.  Davia Nelson and Jazz Francis each had one hit as the team dropped to 3-14 on the season.

    Robert F. Munroe’s team dropped three games against three top softball opponents last week.  The team played well in all three games but seemed doomed to play one bad inning that took away the team’s chances for a win.

  • Red Birds split twin bill,...

    The Chattahoochee Red Birds split a double-header at Therrell Field Saturday, defeating the Gulf County Drive 3-2 before losing to the Jackson County Jays 7-3.

    The Red Birds are 2-1 in the season and stand in first place.

    In other action this past week the Liberty County Diamond Dawgs defeated the Calhoun County Horseman 20-11.

    This Sunday's games have the Bay County Brewers at Chattahoochee at 3 p.m., the Jackson County Jays at Liberty County at 3 p.m. and the Gulf County Drive at Calhoun County at 2 p.m.

  • Jaguars lose a pair of games

    The East Gadsden High School Jaguars played Monday and Saturday baseball games and found themselves on the wrong end of 9-2 scores both days.

    On Monday, three Maclay pitchers combined to throw a three-hitter at East Gadsden.

    John Price, Anthony Matthews and Marqious Murray collected the Jaguar hits.

    Conner Jacobson was the winning pitcher for Maclay. Jared Romero had two hits for the Tallahassee team, as did Brad Richardson. One of Richardson's hits was a home run.
