    Munroe
    The Munroe Lady Cats were able to squeeze in one contest this week with an exam schedule to work around.  The team played at Liberty County on Friday night.   
    The Bulldog led by 10 at the half and extended that lead to 44-16.  Munroe was led by seventh-grader Joanna Parramore, who was pulled up from the JV girls team at the end of their
    season.  
    Parramore scored seven points, pulled down four rebounds and had two steals and two blocks.

    Munroe
    The Munroe boys basketball team is looking for improvement first; wins second.  Andrew Eads, in his second year as head coach, is working hard with his young and inexperienced team in hopes to have them producing some upset wins in January.  Last week the team lost three games by similar scores.

    In the first full week following a Thanksgiving break, Coach Diane Frost-Walker and  the  East Gadsden Lady Jags blistered Taylor County at home winning 91-27.  This week they will take their show on the road to Rutherford and then host West Gadsden in a big game for both teams on Thursday.  

  • Bobcat boys begin basketball...

    This week the Munroe Bobcats  hosted Crossroads Academy on Thursday in their season opener and then travelled  to Oak Hall to play a North Florida Basketball Conference game in Gainesville on Friday.  The Bobcats lost both contests.  
    The Bobcats were dropped by Crossroads Academy.  Crossroads led at the half by 26-11 and extended that lead in the 2nd half to go on to a 60-23 win.  Isaiah Glynn led with 9 points and five rebounds and Matthew Salters added 12 rebounds.  

  • Fuller to leave Jags for Cougars

    Although Coach Corey Fuller will soon leave East Gadsden, he recently reflected  on the Jaguars’ football season.
    The Jags finished their season with a 5-5 record, which Fuller said is an improvement from the past two years.  Fuller said in  2015 the Jags finished with a 1-8 record and 0-10 in 2014.
    “We didn’t finish the way we wanted to finish, but the kids had a great year all-in-all,” Fuller said.

    After a down week ending with a Thanksgiving break, our county girls basketball teams will be gaining steam again starting this week.
    The Lady Jaguars will play Taylor County with their boys team and then host Marianna on Thursday in a district matchup.  Munroe will not play until Friday because of a junior trip.  They will play at  John Paul II. They lost to John Paul the first week of the season.

  • Panthers finish record-breaking...

    The West Gadsden Panthers’ record-breaking football season has come to an end.  
    They finished the season with 10 wins and two losses, the season’s last to the Blountstown Tigers in the regional finals.
    “We had the best record in the school’s history,” said Coach Joseph Striplin.  “We broke a lot of school records.”

  • Panthers win at free-throw line

    Last Friday in a Thanksgiving tournament hosted by Rickards High, West Gadsden found themselves matched up against a scrappy P.K. Yonge team from Gainesville. Both teams played a very physical game on the defensive end of the court, which led to many trips to the free-throw line. The Panthers played solid offense for the final two minutes of the second quarter. Two big shots from the charity strip by senior forward Mark Bradwell, gave West Gadsden  22-19 lead at the intermission.

    After competing for the first time on the junior varsity level last season, Crossroad Academy is embarking upon their first varsity season in the school’s history this year under the leadership of Andonte Gennie, who lead the JV team this past season.
    Coach Gennie has plans to build a solid foundation for his school’s program during this season.
    “In my first year I look to have a positive influence on these young men on and off the court. My main goal for this year is to make sure that we grow as a team week in and week out.”
