ELLISTON –– Having given up 112 points two weeks ago to No. 1-ranked Oak Hill Academy, Galax knows that there’s not a lot of joy in watching an opponent go to triple digits. After Thursday, the Maroon Tide knows that sometimes it’s just going to happen.
On a night when everything seemed to fall, Galax put up its highest scoring total in four years, zipping past Bland County 102-56 in the Region C Division 1 boys’ semifinals at Eastern Montgomery High School.
HILLSVILLE –– Lindsay Martin admits that she is afraid of heights. She gladly dealt with the phobia Friday, even if it meant climbing a ladder with a pair of scissors in her hand.
The Cavalier sharpshooter and her teammates became the first Carroll County girls to cut down the nets after a region title game, ending a string of five championship game losses with a 49-46 win over top-seeded Salem in the Region IV Division 4 finals at Carroll.
