High School

  • Tide girls, Devil boys win

    Galax’s girls broke open a tight game in the fourth quarter and Grayson County’s boys took control considerably earlier as the two teams notched Mountain Empire District wins in a Saturday split quad at Galax High School.

  • Devils own 2nd half, hammer Tazewell

    TAZEWELL –– Heading into halftime with a six-point lead, Grayson County put Tazewell away in the third quarter and rolled to a 70-38 Conference 39 win in a nondistrict game Wednesday.

    The Blue Devils (10-11) led just 31-25 before outscoring the Bulldogs 24-7 in the third quarter. Grayson County limited Tazewell to just 13 second-half points.

  • Titans end Carroll’s 14-game streak

    ROANOKE –– Carroll County rallied from a 14-2 deficit in the first quarter and then again from a 15-point hole in the third but couldn’t capitalize as the Cavaliers fell to Hidden Valley in overtime, 65-60 in a River Ridge District girls’ game Tuesday.

    Held without a field goal in the first period, the Cavaliers (15-2 overall, 10-1 district) tied the game in the second quarter but fell behind again 39-24 in the third.

  • Grayson drops two to Three Rivers foes

    Grayson County (7-10) got a team-best 14 points from Tanner McPherson and Wes Ayers chipped in 10 points.

    Glenvar improved to 12-6 with the win.

  • Blazing start lifts Fort over Devils

    INDEPENDENCE – Fort Chiswell blistered the nets for 38 first quarter points Wednesday night and rolled over Grayson County 86-49 in a Mountain Empire District girls’ game.

    There’s a reason the Pioneers are leading the district and it didn’t take the Blue Devils long to find out why.

    Alexandria Rakes gave the Pioneers a quick 2-0 lead and Gracie Robinson popped a 3-pointer and was fouled on the play. She hit the free throw for a 4-point play and a 6-0 Pioneer lead.

  • Lawrence wins title, MVP, Cummins a champ at Bristol

    BRISTOL –– Grayson County’s Will Lawrence ran his season record to 21-0 and was named the MVP for the upper weight classes last weekend at the sixth annual Ed Cressel Classic wrestling tournament at Virginia High’s Bearcat Den.

    Lawrence, a senior and the top seed in the 152-pound weight class, pinned Tazewell’s Derrick Young, the fourth seed, late in the first period to take home the championship in a bracket with 27 other wrestlers.

  • Carroll Co. boys can’t finish against Hidden Valley

    HILLSVILLE –– There is no bullpen in basketball, which is unfortunate for Carroll County. The Cavaliers could use a closer.

    Having played its last three River Ridge District games down to the wire, Carroll County was unable to finish Wednesday night, falling to Hidden Valley 49-42.

    Holding a four-point lead on the Titans with less than four minutes to play, the Cavaliers were outscored 14-3 in the final 3:48 and fell 49-42 to Hidden Valley.

  • Cavs hang on this time

    HILLSVILLE –– A 23-point second-half lead wasn’t enough for Carroll County to seal a win over Hidden Valley the last time the Titans were in Hillsville, but 16 turned out to be just enough on Wednesday.

    The Cavaliers built and lost a nine-point lead over Hidden Valley in the first half but wouldn’t let go of a sizeable second-half lead a second year in a row, notching a key 68-62 win in duel between the River Ridge District’s top two girls’ teams.

  • Carroll County splits with Patrick Henry

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County rallied from a five-point deficit into an 11-point lead in the second quarter Friday night and pulled away from Patrick Henry for a 69-51 win in a River Ridge District girls’ game.

    The Patriots (4-11 overall, 3-4 district) took a 17-12 lead after one quarter but the Cavaliers dominated the second period 24-8 to remain perfect in league play. Carroll improved to 13-1 overall, 8-0 in the district with the win.
