  • 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.

  • PH rebels against old guard

    When the Region 1A West playoff pairings were officially announced the weekend following the conclusion of the regular season, the greater part of Galax’s football fan base probably looked ahead to the second round, where there appeared to be an imminent rematch with Clintwood, a first crack at the team that denied the Maroon Tide a state championship back in 2011’s Division 1 title game.

  • Tide goes back to back

    THE PLAINS –– The guys up front get the prestige. The guys in the pack grind out championships.

    For the second year in a row Friday, Galax experienced plenty of both.

  • Tide defensive in rout of TV

    It’s an over-used cliche that the best defense is a good offense. For Galax Friday, at least in the early going, its best offense was an opportunistic defense.

    The Maroon Tide’s defensive and special teams units outscored its offense in a 35-point first quarter, quickly ending any hopes of a major upset by Twin Valley as No. 3 Galax trounced the No. 14 Panthers 52-7 in a Region 1A West first-round game at Galax High School.

  • REMEMBER WHEN: November 9-15

     2009

    Carroll County earned its 16th straight region tournament appearance by sweeping the Southwest District volleyball tournament with 3-0 wins over Richlands and Tazewell.

    Galax broke open a tight game with 21 second-half points and ended its season with a 35-6 win over Narrows. Jordan Vaughan rushed for 197 yards and a pair of scores for the Maroon Tide.

  • Galax stopped one win short

    MARION –– The Region 1A West volleyball semifinals were moved almost at the last minute from Rye Cove High School in deep Southwest Virginia to Marion Senior High. The switch sure saved a lot of time getting there, but the ride home was undoubtedly still a long one for Galax.

  • Maroon Tide rolls to 38-0 win

    Grayson County spent the first two quarters one play away from making it anybody’s ballgame. Galax spent the third quarter four plays away from adding another nail to the Blue Devils’ coffin.

    After struggling to take a 7-0 lead into the half, Galax exploded for 24 quick-strike third-quarter points, zooming away to a 38-0 win over Grayson in the final regular season game for both teams.
