HILLSVILLE – Sidney Nester allowed only two hits and struck out 14 last Friday night to lead the Carroll County Cavaliers to a 6-1 nondistrict victory over the Galax Maroon Tide.
It was the season opener for the Cavaliers, the defending 4A State Champions from last season.
The Maroon Tide took an early lead on the Cavaliers. With one out, Kassie Widner reached first on a throwing error. Ally Bartlett was safe on an error after hitting a sharp grounder that ended up in centerfield.
