  • 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.

  • In like a lion, out like a lamb...

    After three weeks of nearly ideal fishing weather, the past week was just the reverse. March "came in like a lion and went out like a lamb” with high winds and heavy rains (much needed I might add). The fishing on Lake Talquin came to a halt. There was not one single person I talked to who was brave enough to even try to fish after Tuesday of this past week.

  • Local fighters strut their stuff...

    Small town entertainment takes various forms from square dancing to community theater to car shows. Saturday night at Quincy's livestock pavilion, the entertainment was confined to a boxing ring.

    About 200 area spectators braved wind and rain to attend the Best of the Best IV, which was sponsored by USA Boxing, the Quincy Fighting Tigers Gym and Gadsden County Tourist Development.
