  • Nester, Cavs blank Galax

    Technically, it wasn’t a perfect game. But in a manner of speaking, Sydney Nester batted a thousand Thursday.

    Nester, a freshman right-hander for Carroll County, recorded all 15 outs by strikes as she and the Cavaliers blanked Galax 16-0 in a lightning-delayed, run rule-shortened five-inning game at Mountain View Park.

    Carroll County improved to 5-0 with the win, dropping Galax to 4-4 with the nondistrict loss.

  • Cavs pull away to go to 4-0

    HILLSVILLE –– After just having seen Grayson County work its way back within grasp, Carroll County applied a solid stiff-arm and sped away.

    Chelsie Callahan’s solo home run pulled Grayson to within a 3-1 score of the Cavaliers in the top of the sixth inning when Carroll County responded with a huge outburst in its half of the frame and pulled away to an 8-2 win over the Blue Devils in a nondistrict softball game Monday evening.

    Grayson County scored twice in the top of the seventh, thanks in part to five stolen bases, and edged Tazewell 6-5 to complete a double header sweep. Jake Blizzard scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch from Zach Wasilewski. 

    Travis Garvey had a solo home run and later doubled to knock in Greg Bryan with the eventual game-winning run as Galax edged Floyd County 7-6.

  • Special Olympians highlight ODAC...

     SALEM –– Carroll County Special Olympics traveled to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference men’s basketball tournament recently for a halftime exhibition game at the Salem Civic Center.

    The Carroll team put on a real show for the crowd, scoring 18 points to go with many rebounds, assists and great teamwork, with the civic center’s public address announcer calling the play-by-play.

  • Grayson beats dusk, Devils

    INDEPENDENCE –– As is often the case in games played in late March, Mother Nature factored in the outcome. An elusive zone recorded the win, with nightfall earning the save.

    Grayson County scored twice on bases-loaded walks in the sixth inning Friday and the game was called due to darkness as soon as the second, go-ahead run crossed the plate, resulting in an abbreviated 13-12 win over Gate City at Grayson National Bank Park.

    Galax came back twice from three runs down and finally won in the bottom of the eight inning on a bases-loaded hit batsman, edging Floyd County 10-9.

    Beth Walker pitched a complete-game one-hitter, striking out 12, and Amber Walker smacked a grand slam and accumulated seven RBIs in Galax’s 12-2 softball win over Auburn.

  • On top under the lights

    HILLSVILLE –– Flipping the switch on its new lighting system, Carroll County played the inaugural night softball game in its home ballpark Tuesday. Floyd County batters left the field seeing stars.

    The Cavaliers scored five runs in the first two innings, which was more than enough for freshman pitcher Sydney Nester, who was all but untouchable in her varsity debut, an 8-1 Cavalier victory.

  • Thaaaat close...

    RICHMOND –– This is why they play the game on hardwood, not on paper.

    On paper, Radford makes it to the Group 1A final four out of the West Region, but on the hardwood, Galax thoroughly outplays the Bobcats in the region semifinals. On paper, a one-loss Honaker team pushes Galax around en route to the region title, but on the hardwood, the Tigers need a 12-minute Tide drought and have to rally from five down in the second half for the win.

  • Tigers own second half

    LEBANON –– If there is an upshot to Galax’s loss to Honaker in Friday’s Region 1A west championship game, it is that the Maroon Tide will be running around in the parking lot of a Richmond hotel for its walk-through at 8 a.m. Monday instead of 6 a.m.
