  • Strategy pays off in Cav win

    Carroll County made it quite clear from the opening tip that the Cavaliers weren’t going to let one man beat them. Even if that strategy worked out – which it did –  the game wasn’t going to win itself. Winston Giles and Noah Johnson took care of that part in Carroll’s 45-44 nondistrict win in Galax.

  • Larrowe, McGrady pick up VHSL...

    The high school volleyball season has been over for about a month but the honors keep coming in for two Twin County players.

    Galax’s Haley Larrowe was named to the first team of the Group 1A all-state team and Grayson County’s Camryn McGrady was selected as a second-team choice on the Group 2A all-state team in voting released recently by the Virginia High School League.

  • Cavs click in win over Eagles

    HILLSVILLE –– The question has probably popped up from time to time in the minds of the fans of Carroll County girls’ basketball this year – Just how good can this group be? For a stretch during the second half Wednesday, Cavalier coach Marc Motley believes he found out.

    Carroll County broke open a tight ballgame by outscoring G.W. Danville 21-6 in the third quarter, rolling to a 71-53 win in a rematch of last year’s Conference 24 semifinals.

  • Tide pulls away from Cavaliers

    HILLSVILLE –– For three quarters, Carroll County wouldn’t let Galax put the game away. So Clif Conley and Caleb Bartlett kept putting away shots.

    The Maroon Tide backcourt duo combined for nine 3-pointers and 40 points Friday night as Galax finally pulled away to a relatively comfortable 59-45 nondistrict win over the Cavaliers.

  • Frost, Devils jump on Marion

    INDEPENDENCE –– It would have been a wise move for the Grayson County athletic department to store up some extra basketballs for this season. A couple of them are destined to become keepsakes.

    Blue Devil senior guard Meredith Frost pumped in 21 points and took home the game ball after topping 1,000 career points Tuesday night as Grayson County posted an impressive 61-45 win over Marion.

  • CC can’t measure up to Buffs

    FLOYD COUNTY –– There are a lot of positives to be found in playing Floyd County the first game of the year. The final score isn’t commonly one of them.

    Carroll County spent most of the third quarter erasing a five-point deficit, but the Buffaloes broke open a tie game with a 9-1 run to start the fourth period and pulled away to a 51-40 nondistrict girls’ basketball win Wednesday. It was the season opener for both teams.

  • Haysi gamble ousts Tide

    BIRCHLEAF –– After Galax’s first defensive stop Saturday, Haysi all but abandoned its running game, nearly to the point that anything other than a forward pass constituted a trick play. All of that came in quite handy on the Tigers’ second-biggest call of the season, the one that set up the only play that would prove to be more important as Haysi nipped Galax 29-28 in a Region 1A West third-round game.

  • Tide, Haysi for semifinal berth

     Galax is fighting for another state semifinal appearance. Haysi is fighting to keep its program alive.

    In what may be the final game ever hosted by Haysi, the Tigers will welcome back the Maroon Tide in the third round of the Region 1A West playoffs Saturday at 2 p.m. on the thick, moist brown earth of the Sandlick Elementary School grounds.

  • Tide earns rematch with Haysi

    Galax closed its regular season with five straight wins by putting up some impressive point totals, averaging 45 points per game over that span. Thanks to a defense that has gotten into to the scoring act in the postseason, ‘impressive’ has evolved into ridiculous.
