  • Warriors end Galax’s run

    Galax’s defense spent all afternoon trying to chase down a phantom of a quarterback. Chilhowie will spend one more week trying to chase down the ghosts of the past.

  • Tide hosts (un)familiar foe in...

    Galax has advanced to the state semifinals for the third year in a row and for the fourth time in the past seven years. The previous three semifinals have been played against teams scattered over the central and eastern part of the state. This year’s foe is from just down the road.

  • Galax drives through Wave

    NARROWS –– A good portion of Galax’s offensive lineup isn’t old enough yet to operate a motor vehicle. That doesn’t mean they don’t know how to drive.

  • Tide gets over the Blues

    A stout defense combined with a potent offense helped the Galax Maroon Tide carve out a 28-10 victory over Parry McCluer last Friday in the second round of the Region 1C football playoffs.

  • Second season begins – Grayson...

    INDEPENDENCE –– Grayson County came out on top in its first-round playoff game. The Blue Devils now move on to the actual postseason.

  • Devils pull the upset

    INDEPENDENCE –– It seemed almost an afterthought, the fact that Grayson County had played its way in to the postseason. The Blue Devils could have stowed the gear after Friday night and still walked away on top of the world.

  • Brown, Walker winners in 5K

    Staff reports

    A pair of 16-year-olds took the top two spots and teenagers claimed five of the top 10 finishing positions at the Galax Autumn Days 5K, co-sponsored by Galax Parks and Recreation and Twin County Regional Healthcare on Oct. 21 at Felts Park.

    Nathan Brown and Charles Walker were within a few paces of one another heading down the stretch with Brown pulling off a two-second win over Walker with a winning time of 17 minutes and 6 seconds. The two placed third (Walker) and fourth a year ago.

  • Cavaliers sweep Spartans

    HILLSVILLE –– In their old Southwest District days, Carroll County would often compile a sparkling regular season record only to fall to a River Ridge District team in the regionals. The Cavaliers’ brief membership in the RRD produced four years of struggles in one of the strongest volleyball districts in the state. It seems that Carroll County has never had a bit of luck against the River Ridge.

    Luck had nothing to do with it Tuesday.

  • Party poopers

    INDEPENDENCE –– Having wandered throughout Southwest Virginia on six of the previous eight Fridays, Grayson County finally returned home, aptly enough, for its homecoming night and the start of a three-game homestand to cap the regular season.

    It was the Blue Devils’ party, and Fort Chiswell ruined it.
