  • Cavaliers drop Cougars 3-2

    HILLSVILLE –– Senior night is normally observed on the final home date of the season. Though Carroll County’s girls’ soccer team still has two home matches remaining, the Cavaliers’ 10 seniors – and some key underclassmen – made sure Tuesday that their time on friendly soil would extend at least one more game.

    Carroll County held off Pulaski County 3-2 in a River Ridge District match at Tommy Thompson Field, all but solidifying a home game in the first round of the Conference 24 tournament.

  • Perfect game, big rallies...

    HILLSVILLE – Carroll County’s Sidney Nester has already built herself a reputation of being one of the best softball pitchers in the state.

    Friday, the junior fireballer turned in a brilliant performance in a doubleheader against Patrick Henry-Roanoke in leading her team to a two-game sweep, 7-0 in the first game and 9-0 in the second game.

  • Dixon to stay, grass to go

    When Galax football coach Mark Dixon submitted his resignation several weeks ago to pursue the chance to coach in college, he didn’t entirely rule out returning to the high school ranks some day. That day turned out to be Tuesday.

    After several interviews at programs all across the spectrum of college divisions, including one as recently as early this week, Dixon concluded that the little single-A high school in Southwest Virginia is where he belongs.

  • Salem powers past Carroll

    HILLSVILLE –– Transportation issues Tuesday delayed the arrival of Salem’s baseball team until game time, pushing the first pitch back about 30 minutes. The Spartan offense more than made up for the lost time.

  • Cavs, Tide trade big wins

    HILLSVILLE ––Carroll County’s girls and Galax’s boys both built insurmountable first-half leads and coasted to easy nondistrict soccer wins Thursday at Tommy Thompson Field.

    The Cavalier girls took a 5-0 lead after 40 minutes in their 8-0 win while the Maroon Tide boys led 5-1 at the break of their 6-1 victory.

  • Taking it to the next level

    Family is what brought Mark Dixon to Galax. Family is the main reason he knows that it’s okay – even necessary – that he should move on.

    Dixon resigned as Galax High School’s head football coach early this week after leading the program to unprecedented heights over the past seven seasons. He is leaving to pursue the chance to coach in the college ranks even though, ironically, a man whose success was driven by equal parts fear and preparation is taking a job at the University of TBA.

  • King's Fork ends Carroll...

     SALEM –– King’s Fork closed the first half on a 6-2 run and opened the third quarter with nine straight points, rallying for a 56-47 win over Carroll County in the Group 4A girls’ state quarterfinals Thursday at the Salem Civic Center.

  • Fork in the road for Cavs

     HILLSVILLE –– Third seed or not, Carroll County can claim at least one advantage when the Cavaliers open play in the Group 4A girls’ basketball tournament tomorrow: the closest thing to home-court advantage of any team in the event.
