  • Galax battles, Carroll prevails

    Galax had just been swept 3-0 at Carroll County back in mid-September when Maroon Tide coach Yerrick Stoneman said his young club didn’t need to be good then, it needed to be good in late October, and that he would get a good idea of his team’s progress when the two schools met again.

    That yardstick match came Monday. If playing four flip-a-coin sets is of any indication, the Tide is progressing nicely.
