  • 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.

  • Galax girls win fourth straight

    Ashlyn Brady’s 3-pointer from the left wing banked in off the glass with a little more than four minutes to go. It wasn’t as pure as the one from the corner about 90 seconds later, but they both counted just the same.

    Brady’s two treys highlighted an 11-3 run that separated Galax from Rural Retreat, and the Maroon Tide got solid contributions from all over the floor as it claimed a 48-40 win in a Conference 46 girls’ game Friday evening.

    Grayson County led 12-9 when the Blue Devils’ Garrett Harrington (126 pounds), Brant Cummins (132) and Dawson Allen (138) all recorded pins to widen the gap to 30-9.

  • Fort starts strong, topples Tide

    MAX MEADOWS –– Fort Chiswell used 9-0 runs on either side of halftime to separate from Galax and take a 57-33 win over the Maroon Tide in a Mountain Empire District boys’ game Tuesday night.

    “Same thing,” said Galax coach Verl Brown, whose Tide gave up a flurry of first-quarter 3-pointers in its previous game. “A guy stands out there and shoots [a 3-pointer], but then they turn around and shoot three? You’ve got to get out there on him.”

     INDEPENDENCE –– Grayson County’s girls came into Friday looking for their second win of the season. Narrows undoubtedly didn’t come into Friday expecting its second loss.
