  • Strong start lifts Highlanders over Devils

    SALEM –– Glenvar did all of its scoring in the bottom of the first inning and it was barely enough to edge Grayson County 3-2 Monday afternoon in a rematch of last year’s Region C Division 2 title game.

    The Highlanders (5-2) took a 3-0 lead on the strength of Tyler DeHart’s two-run single, then turned the lead over to Zach Duncan, who held the Blue Devils scoreless until the sixth.

  • Maroon Tide boys knock off G-Men, Buffaloes

    The Galax boys’ soccer team remained undefeated for the year after a pair of late-week victories, edging Graham 2-1 on Thursday and taking a 2-0 nonconference decision Friday from Floyd County, with both games played at Galax High School.

    The Maroon Tide (7-0-1) trailed early after a beautiful play by Graham in the seventh minute. A Sam Stowers corner kick from the left sailed well past the goal but Will Olive headed the ball back and just inside the left post for a 1-0 G-Men lead.

  • Tide pounds G-Men, Lundy stymies Wave

    BLUEFIELD –– Galax exploded for 13 runs in the top of the fourth inning to break open a tight ballgame and went on to a 14-1 Mountain Empire District win over Graham in five innings Friday.

  • Maroon Tide squeaks past Pulaski Co.

    Ally Bartlett’s single in the bottom of the sixth inning drove in Brooklyn Key with the eventual winning run as Galax claimed a 6-5 nonconference softball win Wednesday over Pulaski County at Mountain View Park.

    Galax (3-6) trailed by three runs until Kylee Hill slammed a three-run home run in the second.

    Lauren Garvey held the Cougars to six hits and struck out six in a complete game effort.

  • Cavaliers vs. Tide inconclusive

    Galax and Carroll County maintained a furious pace for nearly the entire 80 minutes of regulation, working to set up the one goal that would make the difference. In the end the difference – or lack thereof – was a pair of goals that all but set up themselves.

    Each team scored a ‘well why not’ goal but neither could otherwise penetrate the other’s defense as the two settled for a 1-1 draw in a nonconference boys’ game Thursday at Galax High School.

  • Cavs win big; Devils outlast Radford

    DUBLIN –– Led by three hits each from six different players, Carroll County scored early and often, taking a 20-1 lead after three innings and hammering  Pulaski County in a five-inning River Ridge District game.

    Carroll County (1-1) sent 15 batters to the plate in the top of the first inning, scoring nine runs on seven walks and five hits, including a two-run double off the bat of Kenley Meredith.

    The Cavaliers kept it going with seven runs in the second, highlighted by a two-run double by Reece Edwards.

  • Smith’s big fly leads Cavaliers past Maroon Tide

    Carroll County used one big inning and three little ones to post an 8-1 win over Galax in a nondistrict softball game Monday at Mountain View Park.

    The Cavaliers (2-0) led 1-0 when they took command with a five-run uprising in the top of the fourth, highlighted by Eustacia Smith’s three-run home run. Eden Durnil had doubled to drive in Gracie Davidson and Kayla Walker scored on an error before Smith stepped in and clubbed a liner over the left field fence for a 6-1 Carroll County lead.

  • All-region teams announced

    Galax’s Clif Conley made an impact in his first year as a member of the Maroon Tide basketball team. He made an impact on the coaches in the western half of the state as well.

    Conley, a junior guard, was chosen as a first-team all-Region 1A West boys’ basketball team, joining seven other Twin County players who were named to their respective second teams or honorable mention lists.

  • Maroon Tide drops two games on the diamond

    CHILHOWIE –– Tyler Pierce kept Galax’s bats at bay for most of the afternoon and Chilhowie avenged an earlier loss with a 5-3 baseball win Thursday.

    Galax (1-4) had knocked off the Warriors 13-3 in five innings seven days earlier. Both are members of Conference 46.

  • Galax, Marion battle to 0-0 draw

    Galax and Marion went at each other for 90 minutes with no resolution as the Maroon Tide and the Scarlet Hurricanes settled for a 0-0 draw in a girls’ soccer match Thursday at Galax High School.

    Marion controlled the tempo for most of the first half before a late flurry of activity by Galax, but neither had much to show for their efforts.
