  • Cavaliers, twilight defeat Galax

    HILLSVILLE – Galax and Carroll County fought it out for more than three hours on the baseball field last Thursday but it was Mother Nature who actually decided the outcome of the game.

    With darkness setting in, Carroll County took a 7-6 lead after the fifth inning. Galax exploded for five runs in the top of the sixth inning.

    The Cavaliers loaded the bases on a pair of walks and a single and scored two runs on a double by Trace Davis to cut the lead to 11-9 with one out and two runners on base.

  • Tide girls putting up a fight

    Regardless of the sport and whatever the gender of the players, what coaches want to see above anything else is improvement, be it half-by-half, game-by-game or year-to-year.

    It appears Galax girls’ soccer coach George Edmondson is definitely getting a glimpse of the latter.

    The Maroon Tide ladies dropped to 0-3 on the year with a 3-0 loss to Giles on Monday, but it has been an encouraging 0-3 start for Galax.

  • Maroon Tide clobbers Narrows 17-1

  • No change yet in Tide girls’ coaching position

    Contrary to popular belief, Yerrick Stoneman is the girls’ basketball coach at Galax High School. It is the hope of several people involved with the program that the same can be said a couple months from now.
