Guess Who?

So guess who is one of the state’s top hurdlers?

Hint: She’s a junior at Gadsden County High School and her name is Janasia Cox.

Cox placed second in the 200 meters and also the 300-meter hurdles at the FSU Relays in March against some stellar com- petition. The competi- tion really pushed the athlete as she set a per- sonal best with a time of 24.54 in the 200 meters.

Kudos to the girls’ team as they placed fifth out of 58 teams in the meet.

Best Big Bender

The All-Big Bend boys’ and girls’ basketball teams were released over the weekend and con- gratulations to Crossroad Academy’s Dedric Streeter for being tapped for the Second Team.

Streeter, a junior, averaged 14 points and eight rebounds per game. Fel- low Scorpion Jamaal Dixon, also a junior for- ward, was named honor- able mention for his nine-point, seven-re- bound average.

Gadsden County High School senior Angel Tovias scored 17 goals this past season and freshman Angel Juapillo scored 11 goals and both were named Honorable Mention All-Big Bend Soccer.

Track at Maclay Mini Meet

The Gadsden County High School boys’ track- and-field team placed third, and the girls’ team fifth, in the Maclay Mini Meet last week.

Dequavious Charleston blistered the pack in the boys’ 800 meters and Cardell Herring was second in the triple jump.

The boys also placed first in the 4×100 relays and second in the 4×400., Dontrell Hall finished third in the 300-meter hurdles.

On the girls’ side, Alondria Smith and Kirara Walls crossed second and third, respectively, in the 300- meter hurdles.


The Munroe girls’ tennis team played back-to-back matches last week.

On Tuesday the team hosted Community Christian, winning the match 5-2, and on Thursday they faced John Paul II in an away match, losing 7-0 to the Panthers.


Last week Marianna walloped Gadsden County in girls’ softball 19-0 in a district match up for the Jaguars.
