  • Defense falters for Devils, Cavs

  • Grayson puts bleachers on hold

    INDEPENDENCE – Upgrades to the Grayson County High School bleachers have been put on hold indefinitely after initial costs estimates — and a potential budget shortfall for the school division — came in higher than expected.

    MAX MEADOWS –– Fort Chiswell gave Galax all it could handle for the first two sets but the Maroon Tide came to life in the second half of its Mountain Empire District volleyball match and pulled away to a 25-22, 18-25, 25-12, 25-18 win Tuesday night over the Pioneers.

  • Carroll County notches big 3-1 win over Spartans

    HILLSVILLE –– One could sense that it was going to happen, sooner or later. For Carroll County fans, the sooner, obviously the better.

    Having taken a two-time defending state champion to five sets in a losing effort earlier in the week, Carroll County notched what may serve as a watershed win for the program by taking down one of the River Ridge District’s big three Thursday night, winning the final two sets to claim a 25-21, 17-25, 25-23, 25-19 win over Salem.

  • Grayson County powers past Galax

    INDEPENDENCE –– For a team with depth, size, versatility and experience, Grayson County did as it was supposed to do.

    The Blue Devils never let momentum shift in a major way in taking  a 3-0 Mountain Empire District win over Galax Thursday, trailing for just two serves the entire night and rolling past the Maroon Tide 25-12, 25-18, 25-16 to reach the halfway point of its season with a 9-1 record.

    WOODLAWN –– Sometimes the best effort just isn’t quite enough

    Galax’s No. 2 through No. 7 runners all posted personal best times Wednesday and the Maroon Tide’s No. 1 took the individual title and missed a school record by one second, but Floyd County was able to edge Galax by five points for the boys’ team title in the Maroon Tide Invitational at the Southwestern Virginia Training Center.

  • Thornhill, Colonels romp over Galax

    ALTAVISTA –– On the move with a chance to overcome two-third of a three-touchdown deficit, Galax was soon scratching its head wondering what happened and how it happened so fast.

    One of the most explosive backfields in Virginia small-school football is what happened. 

    A slew of big plays kept defending Group 1A state champ Altavista undefeated as the Colonels exploded for a 56-7 nonconference win Friday night.
