High School

  • Maroon Tide back above .500

    The Galax Maroon Tide remained unbeaten in the Mountain Empire District Friday with an impressive 50-13 victory over Graham in its annual homecoming game played in Galax.

    The G-Men opened the game by attempting a trick play against the Maroon Tide, an onsides kick on the opening kickoff.

    It didn’t work and Jeremy  Jennings covered the ball at the Tide 47.

  • 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.

  • WEEK 8 PRIMER

    Grayson County and Galax will both celebrate homecoming while Carroll County begins the second half of a four-game road swing tonight as the high school football season presses onward with its eighth week of action.

  • First half leads Cave Spring over Cavaliers

    ROANOKE ––Carroll County enjoyed its best offensive showing since the season’s opening week, but Cave Spring capitalized on four Cavalier turnovers and a slew of big plays to take a 41-14 win in a River Ridge District game Friday at Dwight Bogle Stadium.

    A 48-yard Ty Albritton punt return to Carroll’s 24 set up Alex Emery’s scoring run on the next play to give the Knights (5-2) the lead for good.

  • Carroll comes up short against Knights

    HILLSVILLE –– There are your garden variety 3-0 sweeps in volleyball, ones in which one team thoroughly dismantles another and gets out of the gym in an hour or so having allowed 30 or 40 points in an entire match.

    This was not one of those occasions.

  • Grayson off the schneid after 38-27 win over Graham

  • Defense falters for Devils, Cavs

     BEN HUR –– Grayson County enjoyed far and away its most successful night rushing the football this season, but the Blue Devils were unable to keep Lee High out of the end zone and dropped a 43-28 nonconference decision Friday at Five Star Stadium.

    Will Peters spotted Grayson County (0-5) an early 6-0 lead with a 14-yard touchdown run but the Generals (5-0) came back with four unanswered touchdowns by the early stages of the second half.
