    Blue skies with puffy clouds and a crisp wind characterized the weather for the 25th Annual Twin County Regional Healthcare Galax Autumn Days 5K Run last Saturday.

    HILLSVILLE — The Carroll County School Board is considering a request for a soccer program for Carroll County Middle School.

  • Blue Devils pick up steam

    INDEPENDENCE –– These guys have found something.

    After an 0-5 start, Grayson County won its second straight game Friday night at Bill Strong Field and used the same formula that has seen the Blue Devils play  well for three weeks straight, this time resulting in a 32-6 homecoming win over Bland County.

    Getting the O-fer off their backs has been nice, said Blue Devil coach Brett McPherson.

  • Galax scrambles for second

    ABINGDON –– After the opening round of the Group 1A state golf tournament Monday at Glenrochie Country Club, the big question was whether George Wythe, having played lights-out since August, could come back Tuesday and overcome a six-stroke deficit to first-day leader William Campbell.

    The Maroons couldn’t gobble up its six-stroke gap, but Galax certainly did.

  • Galax erupts on Fort Chiswell

    MAX MEADOWS –– For the second straight week, Galax followed up a dominant first-half performance with a second half that was, well, not so much. This time around the first half effort was plenty enough to bring home a win at the end of the day.

  • Spartans outslug Galax

    Galax came out of its corner and punched Giles squarely in the nose by scoring 23 points in the first quarter, and the Maroon Tide had put up more points by halftime – 30 – than the Spartans have allowed in a game all season. But Giles hasn’t won 20 consecutive outings, one of them a state title game, by having a glass jaw.

  • Vaughan wins C39 title; Devils,...

    GALAX –– Jacob Vaughan wasn’t extremely happy with himself when he walked off the 18th green Monday at Blue Ridge Country Club. Fortunately, the Grayson County senior was miffed about his second-to-last shot of the day. His round in general turned out to be plenty solid.
