  • Cougars too much for Cavs

    HILLSVILLE ––  ‘Bigger, Faster, Stronger’ is a slogan that’s been pasted on the walls of high school weight rooms all across the country for years. If it’s not in Carroll County’s workout room as a visual form of motivation, it’s certainly been preached there.

    For the better part of the first two sets Monday, Galax had Carroll County right where it needed, and itself was right where it wanted. But the Cavaliers had a couple of aces in the hole.
