High School

  • Grayson County powers past Galax

    INDEPENDENCE –– For a team with depth, size, versatility and experience, Grayson County did as it was supposed to do.

    The Blue Devils never let momentum shift in a major way in taking  a 3-0 Mountain Empire District win over Galax Thursday, trailing for just two serves the entire night and rolling past the Maroon Tide 25-12, 25-18, 25-16 to reach the halfway point of its season with a 9-1 record.

  • Vaughan, DiGiacomo battle on links

    The Mountain Empire District’s four golf-playing schools went head-to-head three times last week with Galax taking a pair of team wins and Grayson County picking up the third.

  • Marshall, Conley class of the field at Galax invite

    WOODLAWN –– Sometimes the best effort just isn’t quite enough

    Galax’s No. 2 through No. 7 runners all posted personal best times Wednesday and the Maroon Tide’s No. 1 took the individual title and missed a school record by one second, but Floyd County was able to edge Galax by five points for the boys’ team title in the Maroon Tide Invitational at the Southwestern Virginia Training Center.

  • Thornhill, Colonels romp over Galax

    ALTAVISTA –– On the move with a chance to overcome two-third of a three-touchdown deficit, Galax was soon scratching its head wondering what happened and how it happened so fast.

    One of the most explosive backfields in Virginia small-school football is what happened. 

    A slew of big plays kept defending Group 1A state champ Altavista undefeated as the Colonels exploded for a 56-7 nonconference win Friday night.

  • WEEK 4 PRIMER

    As Carroll County takes its bye week, Grayson County and Galax begin the uphill portion of their schedules tonight as the high school football season heads into Week 4.

  • Locals lead the way in XC meets

  • Grayson County takes five-set win from Scarlet Hurricane

    MARION –– Grayson County claimed the final two sets, including a 15-11 fifth, to squeak past Marion in a Conference 39 volleyball matchup Thursday night.

    The Blue Devils remained undefeated after four matches with the 18-25, 25-9, 18-25, 25-21, 15-11 win over the Scarlet Hurricane (3-2), whose only losses have come at the hands of Grayson County.

  • Indians slog past Grayson Co.

    INDEPENDENCE – Skyler Miles booted a 23-yard field goal in the third period last Friday night to give Rural Retreat a 9-7 nondistrict victory over Grayson County in a game at Bill Strong Field that was played at times in a heavy downpour of rain.

    The Indians had driven to the Blue Devil 6-yard line where the Grayson defensive unit shutdown the drive, forcing the field goal.

    On a muddy field, Miles split the uprights with 7:39 to play in the third period.

  • Bruins pull away from Carroll

    HILLSVILLE – Blacksburg won for the 22nd straight time against Carroll County Friday night on a soggy Tommy Thompson Field.

    With a downpour for most of the night, the only thing consistently driving successfully was the rain as the Bruins (1-1) slugged out a 16-0 victory over the Cavaliers (1-2).

    There were plenty of fumbles, slips, slides and dropped passes as both teams continually played well behind the chains for most of the night.

  • Buffs turn it around on Cavs

    FLOYD –– Less than a week after taking a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Carroll County, Floyd County turned the tables Tuesday evening and notched a 3-1 win over the Cavaliers, 25-15, 16-25, 25-17, 25-23.

    Trailing two games to one and looking to extend the match to a fifth set, the Cavaliers (1-2) jumped out to an early 8-3 lead in the fourth set on the strength of a 5-0 run keyed by two Eustacia Smith kills and a pair of aces by Madison Hull.
