  • Med-Fit team wins Mud Run in...

    GREENVILLE, S.C. –– Med-Fit Systems (Nautilus) sponsored three teams competing in a 3.5-mile Mud Run this past weekend, and one of the three teams brought home a first-place finish in its division.

    “2 Hot Chicks and 2 Ugly Dudes” placed 19th overall and first in the co-ed division of the annual Goodwill Mud Run on April 13-14.

    The team was captained by Med-Fit project manager and former Gazette reporter Ben Bomberger, with teammates Brandon Davis (Med-Fit IT director), Tracy Snow and Kyla Ford.

  • Cougars drop Carroll to .500

    HILLSVILLE –– Patrick County took advantage of some costly defensive miscues by Carroll County and made amends for an earlier loss to the Cavaliers with a 6-3 nondistrict win Thursday at Bill Worrell Field.

    Carroll County had opened its season with a 4-1 win in Stuart, the first of four straight wins to start the year, but the Cougars handed the Cavaliers their fourth straight setback Thursday to drop Carroll to .500 on the year.

  • Strickland tees off for Cavs

    The first four innings Monday were all that Galax could have hoped for. The final three innings were more than Cheyenne Strickland could have dreamed of. 

    Galax battled Carroll County evenly until the fifth inning, when Strickland launched the first of her three home runs as the Cavaliers exploded for a 22-3 nondistrict win at Mountain View Park.

  • Carroll County suffers first loss

    SOCCER ROUND-UP

     

    HILLSVILLE –– Lousy weather conditions have played havoc with the Carroll County girls’ soccer schedule so far, limiting the Cavaliers to just two matches. Meteorology played a hand in match No. 3 as well.

  • New faces on 2013 schedules

    For most of the spring it has felt more like the tail end of football season outside. And if one actually needs a reason to talk about football, weather is as good as any.

  • Cavaliers edge Maroon Tide

    HILLSVILLE –– Having exploded in the latter innings for a 17-3 win over Galax two weeks ago, Carroll County failed to capitalize on early opportunities at a decent-sized lead Saturday. That, in turn, was Galax’s big opportunity, but the Tide couldn’t cash in, either.

    Galax made improvements aesthetically but couldn’t extract vengeance for the earlier shellacking as the Cavaliers held on for a 3-2 nondistrict win Saturday at Bill Worrell Field.

  • Grayson a 4-3 walk-off winner

    INDEPENDENCE –– Conven-tional baseball wisdom dictates that you play for the win on the road, play for the tie at home. Wednesday, the road team got the tie and the home team took the win.

    Carroll County scored twice in the seventh to tie Grayson County at 3-3, but the Blue Devils got an RBI single from Spencer Roberts with none out in the bottom of the inning to edge the Cavaliers 4-3 in a nondistrict game at the Grayson Rec. Park.

  • Special Olympians join Division...

     Nineteen members of Carroll County Special Olympics and four family members were invited to participate in the NCAA Division III east-west all-star game March 23 at the Salem Civic Center.

    Each year, in conjunction with the Division III national championships at Salem, the NCAA selects two teams of Division III all-stars to play. The Carroll County athletes were invited to participate in warm-ups with the players by shooting around, then formed a spirit tunnel for the college players as they were introduced.

  • Tide rallies past Buffs again

    The season opener between Galax and Floyd County two weeks ago was an exercise in efficiency, with just an hour and 51 minutes needed to complete Galax’s tidy 3-1 win.

    Floyd County batted for what seemed like at least that much time in a single half-inning in the two teams’ rematch Monday, while Galax’s final turn at bat never did end.

  • Carroll teen wins Ironman...

    ZION CROSSROADS ––    Cherokee Widner of Sylvatus was crowned the 2013 national champion at the Ironman Nationals lifting competition, held at the Best Western Crossroads on March 17.

    The event was sanctioned by the 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation, and the competition took place without any aids other than a weight belt and wrist straps.
