High School

  • Bruins take down Cavs 3-0

    HILLSVILLE –– Blacksburg’s top seven players, all seniors, have been playing together since they were sixth-graders, concentrating on nothing but volleyball.

    It shows.

  • Tide falters in Region 1A West golf

    WYTHEVILLE –– Trimmed and rolled greens, enough of a breeze to be a factor and somewhat of a larger stage made Wytheville Golf Club a different course in the Region 1A West tournament than it was seven days earlier in the Conference 46 tournament. Galax handled the course more than well enough at the conference event. In Thursday’s regionals, the venerable place got the best of the Maroon Tide.

  • Salem overpowers Cavaliers

    SALEM –– Spoiler alert: Salem is pretty good at playing football.

  • Cavs escape Maroon Tide

    After a cakewalk of a first set it appeared Carroll County was in for a short night in its nondistrict venture to Galax Monday. But with 110 total points played in the second and third sets, the Maroon Tide made the Cavaliers do quite a bit of work just to get out of town in four.

    Galax gave Carroll County all it could handle and was one point away from taking a two-set lead before the Cavaliers staved off the upset bid and finally came away with the 25-10, 26-28, 29-27, 25-14 win.

  • Tide rallies past Devils

    INDEPENDENCE –– Galax can count itself very fortunate that humans have five digits at the end of each extremity instead of just four. There was barely enough room for the Maroon Tide to stick anything but a pinky toe in the door as it was being slammed.

  • Galax second at Conference 46

    WYTHEVILLE –– Nobody was going to lay a finger on George Wythe. No way, no how, and that was pretty much a given, even before the first ball was teed up Thursday at the Conference 46 golf tournament. But for a runner-up, Galax was as close to a sure thing as they come.

  • Haynes 3rd, record falls at Galax XC

    HILLSVILLE –– Hidden Valley’s Emma Rogers posted a time Wednesday at the 23rd running of the Maroon Tide Invitational cross country meet that would have won the event just about any other year, and done so by more than a minute just about any other year.

    But Wednesday wasn’t just any other day.

  • Blacksburg overwhelms Carroll County

    BLACKSBURG –– Blacksburg celebrated homecoming last Friday night on a happy note as the Bruins rolled over Carroll County 52-6 in a River Ridge District game played in Blacksburg.

    The Bruins scored the first time they had the ball and they continued to score both on the ground and in the air.

    The Cavaliers (1-3) got a break on the opening kickoff. 

    Blacksburg kicker Camden Wise tried to fool Carroll County with an onside kick but the Cavaliers recovered the loose ball at their own 45.

  • Cavaliers top Cougars in 3

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County picked up its first River Ridge District volleyball win of the season, evening its league record at 1-1 after a tight 25-21, 26-24, 25-23 win Thursday night over Pulaski County.

    Jolee Sloss led the Cavaliers at the net with nine kills and she also came up with 17 digs while Adrienne Harris also dug out 17 balls. Carroll setters Taylor Spangler and T.J. Burnette put up 12 assists apiece.

  • Highlanders blank Grayson

    SALEM – Glenvar scored three touchdowns  in the first period last Friday night and rolled to a 47-0 nondistrict victory over Grayson County at Highlander Stadium.

    The Highlanders (2-2) added another touchdown in the second quarter to take a 27-0 lead at halftime and scored three more touchdowns in the second half  to put the game out of reach.

    After the Blue Devils failed to pick up a first down after taking the opening kickoff, Alec Thompson got a good runback to the Blue Devil 35.
