  • Kings of the rings

    The fist-bump has largely replaced the handshake and to some extent the high-five among today’s youth in general, athletes in particular. Eddie Hanks and Jon Alouf need to have a care when greeting a friend or teammate in such a manner. Someone could end up needing stitches.

  • Rodriguez, Smoot win region, ‘X’ places in three state events

     RADFORD –– Xavier Rodriguez earned three top-four finishes while two Grayson County teammates also managed all-state efforts at the Group A state track and field championships last weekend at Radford University.

    Rodriguez, a senior, placed second in the 100 meters with a time of 10.97 seconds, just .31 behind state champion Jestin Brown of Altavista.

    Rodriguez also placed third in the 400 with a time of 50.48 and was fourth in the 200 (22.24).

  • Blue Devils baffle Galax

    One thing that sets soccer apart from most other sports, aside from the fact that nobody pounces on a loose ball, is that for the most part there is a continuously-running clock.

    Gate City had Galax in sore need of a timeout on Tuesday.

    Giving up two early goals, the Maroon Tide never fully recovered and dropped a 4-1 decision to the Blue Devils in the Group A boys’ soccer quarterfinals at the East River Soccer Complex.

  • Galax settles down, ousts Wave

    PULASKI –– As if the baseball gods had seen enough shoddy play for one evening – 10 runs and six errors in a 50-minute first inning – nearly three inches of rain pounded Calfee Park Tuesday, in effect telling Clintwood and Galax to go home and come back when they could do the game justice.

    Galax got the message.

    Picking up in the top of the third inning Thursday with Clintwood leading 7-6, Galax played flawlessly the rest of the way and pulled out an 11-7 win in the Group A Division 1 state quarterfinals.

  • One more title to play for

    RADFORD –– Nearly every member of Galax’s baseball team has multiple state championship rings from other sports. Some own as many as five. None would be as improbable as this.

    A two-out RBI single by Bryant Cox in the bottom of the 11th inning extended by one more day what has been a magical year for Galax athletics and propelled the Maroon Tide into yet another state championship game as the Tide pulled off a grueling 4-3 win over Rappahannock in the Group A Division 1 semifinals Friday at Radford University.
