  • Devils pull away from Galax, 10-4

    INDEPENDENCE –– Cell phone conversations among the spectators notwithstanding, folks in and around the Galax-Grayson County softball game probably had little idea what was going on among their baseball counterparts on the other side of the parking lot Friday. They need only pay attention to their own game to get a pretty good idea.

  • Grayson County coasts past Tazewell 9-2

    INDEPENDENCE – Grayson County hammered out five doubles to go with five singles Wednesday to roll over Tazewell 9-2 in a nondistrict game at the Grayson National Bank Baseball Complex.

    While the Blue Devil bats were smoking, Tyler Lundy tossed a seven-hitter to pick up the win on the mound as the Blue Devils upped their record to 4-2 for the season.

    Lundy was sharp in the first inning, striking out the first two batters he faced and getting the final out on a fly ball to right field.

  • Grayson erupts in 9-2 win

    FLOYD –– Grayson County owed Floyd County some measure of retribution after a 3-2 loss March 23 in Independence. The Blue Devils squared the account on Wednesday but now owe the Buffaloes a half a box of softballs.

    Keeping with the sportsmanlike custom of giving the ball to a player who hits a home run, Grayson County kids took four well-mashed, neon yellow Worths home with them Wednesday after the Blue Devils powered to a 9-2 win in a nondistrict game at Floyd County High School.

  • Grayson shuts out Pioneers

    INDEPENDENCE –– After a three-inning dress rehearsal on Thursday, Grayson County blanked Fort Chiswell for real on Friday, taking a 10-0 win in a six-inning Mountain Empire District game.

    The two teams got three innings in the books on Thursday in Max Meadows before thunderstorms chased them from the field with the Blue Devils leading 4-0.

  • Tide makes most of two hits in 4-3 win over Cavs

    Carroll County made a gallant seventh inning rally last Monday but fell short by one run in a 4-3 nondistrict loss to the Galax Maroon Tide in Felts Park.

  • Maroon Tide rallies past Wythe, 4-2

    WYTHEVILLE –– Galax pushed across two runs in the top of the seventh inning to snap a 2-2 tie and defeated George Wythe for the second time in two Mondays, rallying for a 4-2 win Monday at George Wythe High School.

  • Galax continues hot start

    WYTHEVILLE –– One goal this year for Galax is to leave no zeroes on the board. Far from wishing to avoid a complete-game shutout, the Maroon Tide doesn’t even want to be skunked for a single inning. That’s a lofty bar to clear, without a doubt. But 10 out of the last 12 isn’t bad.

  • Moore’s homer powers Cavs past Floyd, 2-1

    FLOYD –– Tiffanie Moore’s solo home run in the top of the fifth inning was the difference Wednesday as Carroll County squeaked by Floyd County 2-1 in a nondistrict softball game.

    Moore stepped into the box with two outs and laced a 2-1 pitch over the centerfield fence to propel the Cavaliers to their second win over the Buffaloes in a week.

  • Highlanders outplay Devils

    INDEPENDENCE –– A free 90 feet every now and then is to be expected in baseball. Problems arise when those 90s start adding up to 360.

    Glenvar took advantage of four errors, 10 free passes at the plate and a couple of non-scoreable defensive miscues, all while playing clean baseball itself, in a 5-2 nondistrict win Tuesday at Grayson National Bank Park.

  • Maroon Tide blanks Scarlet Hurricane 9-0 in boys’ soccer

    MARION –– Seven players combined to score nine goals and Galax decimated Marion 9-0 in a nondistrict boys’ soccer match in Marion.

    Brayan Estrada and Edgar Guzman each accounted for a pair of goals for the defending 1A state champs while Dominic DiGiacomo added a goal and two assists.

    The Maroon Tide outshot the Scarlet Hurricanes 29-0 with Galax keeper Ricardo Ortiz making one save.
