  • Good fishin' on the rise at...

    Finally!!

    After many days of not-so-favorable fishing weather, we were blessed with ideal conditions to enjoy a day on the lake. Even with the water being slightly muddy, good reports have been coming in at both Whippoorwill and Ingrams marinas. Both RV parks were filled with fish-hungry folks.With the water conditions, catfishing still remains strong almost anywhere on the lake. Prepared catfish bait and worms are your best bet.

  • Off The Hook

    As I began to write this week's column, I tried to recall in years, March and April with weather like we have had this year. With another front moving through this past week, high winds and more rain stopped fishing for the most part. The lake level is normal; however, the water is still heavily stained but seems to be clearing.

  • EGHS qualifies tracksters for...

    The East Gadsden High School track team saw action in the 2-2A District Meet last Wednesday at Godby.

    Torriah Bell led a contingent of girls into the 2-A regional while Frazier Parker was the top competitor on the boys team.

    Bell, a freshman transfer from Texas, qualified for the region in four events. She won the district long jump with a 17-5 leap, which is second in the state overall. Bell also qualified with a second in the triple jump. She was on a third place team in the 400-meter relay and a fourth place team in the 1,600-meter relay.

  • Bobcats edge by Wewahitchka 11-10

    The Robert F. Munroe Bobcats scored nine first-inning runs but had to hold off Wewahitchka late to win an 11-10 baseball game at home Friday night.

    The Bobcats took advantage of Wewahitchka pitches wildness to build the early lead. Brock Hinson got the pitching win and Sam Young and Parth Patel each had two hits to lead the offense. It was Hinson's sixth win of the year.

    Munroe lost a home game to Brookwood Thursday night but defeated John Paul II Tuesday 13-1 in an away game.

  • West Gadsden has two first in...

    West Gadsden athletes won two events in the District 3-A Meet last Saturday.

    Joshua Weston won the high jump, leaping 5-10. Brandon Thomas won the 400-meter dash with a time of 51.03.

    Both qualified for the regional that will be held this weekend.

  • 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.
