  • Wythe stops Grayson 4-1

    INDEPENDENCE –– Travis Hedgepeth misfired badly on his easiest scoring opportunity of the night. The George Wythe forward more than made up for it.

  • Grayson erupts in 9-2 win

    FLOYD –– Grayson County owed Floyd County some measure of retribution after a 3-2 loss March 23 in Independence. The Blue Devils squared the account on Wednesday but now owe the Buffaloes a half a box of softballs.
