  • Galax finishes strong, slugs four HRs in win over Wave

    NARROWS –– Galax won its third straight outing, unloading for four home runs and 14 base hits in a 14-5 Mountain Empire District softball win Thursday over Narrows.

    Taylor Ashworth started the power surge for the Maroon Tide (7-11) with a two-run shot in the top of the first. Taylor Cummings and Holly Cassell each smacked a solo homer in the top of the third, and Cassell added a grand slam in the fourth inning as Galax took a 9-1 lead.

  • Maroon Tide girls win two; Galax soccer now 15-0

    Galax scored nine of its 10 runs in the third and fourth innings and cruised to a 10-1 win over Fort Chiswell in a Mountain Empire District game Wednesday at Mountain View Park.

    Leading 1-0 entering the bottom of the third, the Maroon Tide used a two-run Taylor Ashworth home run to highlight a four-run outburst.

    Galax (6-11 overall, 5-3 district) added five runs in the fourth, doing all the damage with two outs. Ashworth and Morgan Neff each had an RBI double in the big inning.

  • Cavaliers, Blue Devils stay hot

    INDEPENDENCE –– Grayson County racked up 11 runs in the first inning and clinched the Mountain Empire District regular season baseball title Wednesday with a 17-2, five-inning win over Galax at the Grayson Rec. Park.

    The Blue Devils (13-5 overall, 8-1 district) won for the third time in three days this week, and won their fifth straight since suffering back-to-back one-run losses to start the month.

  • Carroll County silences Falcons for big SWD win

    ABINGDON –– Freshman pitcher Gracie Davidson kept a potent Abingdon lineup under control for seven innings Friday and Carroll County claimed a key 2-1 Southwest District softball win over the Falcons.

    Davidson scattered six hits, struck out two, issued one walk and let her defense do its thing behind her, and the Cavaliers responded by handling all 18 chances flawlessly, coming within an out of shutting out the Falcons.

    Davidson also had an RBI single for Carroll County.

     

    BOYS’ SOCCER

  • Grayson uses huge start to win 26-1

     BASTIAN –– Grayson County opened the game with 11 runs in the top of the first inning Thursday and cruised to a 26-1 Mountain Empire District baseball win over Bland County.

  • Tide, Devils post high finishes

    Galax and Grayson County earned five scoring finishes each at the Buffalo Invitational track meet Friday at Floyd County High School.

    Grayson’s Tyler Pauley and the Maroon Tide’s Darian Brown placed in two events each. Pauley took home a pair of third-place finishes, in the 400 (53.60 seconds) and the 1600 (4:53.92) while Brown was third in the high jump (5-8) and sixth in the 110-meter hurdles (18.06).

  • Davidson pitches Cavs to win; Devils rally with big 7th

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County notched a big Southwest District softball win on Tuesday as Gracie Davidson shut out Richlands on four hits in the Cavaliers’ 3-0 victory.

    Davidson walked one and struck out five on the day as Carroll County improved to 9-5 overall, 2-2 in SWD play. The young righthander had to work out of a pair of jams as Richlands had two runners on base in both the third and sixth innings, but only one Blue Tornado runner advanced past second base all day.

  • Callahan, Devils shut down Chilhowie 9-1

    INDEPENDENCE –– Grayson County pitcher Chelsea Callahan wasn’t perfect all day. Just most of it.

    A sophomore, Callahan allowed just two baserunners, issued zero walks and got flawless defense behind her as the Blue Devils took a 9-1 softball win Tuesday in a nondistrict game at the Grayson County Recreation Park.

  • Cavaliers hold on for 2-1 win

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County hasn’t had the best of luck this year when it comes to scoring runs. But Wednesday, the Cavaliers were really good at dodging bullets.

    Carroll County diffused a pair of late-inning predicaments and made the most of another lean day at the plate, holding off Grayson County 2-1 in a nondistrict game at Bill Worrell Field.
