  • Cougars diverse in Carroll win

    HILLSVILLE –– With several athletes on its roster capable of going the distance if given enough of a crease, Pulaski County has more than its share of home run hitters at its disposal. A three-run jack was about the only way the Cougars didn’t score Friday night at Tommy Thompson Field.

  • Britt, Wooten win club...

    Sherrill Britt of West End, N.C., held off two other golfers to win the 51st Annual Blue Ridge Country Club Invitational recently.

    Britt fired a 5-under par 65 on Saturday and 67 on Sunday for a 132 total. Second place went to Brock Cox of Galax with rounds of 68-65–133 and third place to Brad Chambers of Galax, with rounds of 66-68–134.

    Other golfers winning the different flights included:

  • Glenvar powers past Grayson

    SALEM –– A lot has to go right for an 0-3 team to enter a 3-0 team’s stadium and walk out with a victory. Most of what went right, though, went in the home team’s favor.

    Glenvar bolted to a 34-0 halftime lead and was the benefactor of most of the happy plays Friday night as the Highlanders blanked Grayson County 51-0 in a nondistrict matchup at Highlander Stadium.

  • Charges against former Carroll...

    WYTHEVILLE — A prosecutor has dropped all charges against a former football coach, teacher and administrator with Carroll County schools. The charges stemmed from a “hazing” incident involving an 11th grade football player.

    Howard S. Ingo, a former George Wythe High School football coach, was convicted in May of a “corporal punishment” violation, a Class 4 misdemeanor, and ordered to pay a fine of $100. He appealed the conviction.

  • Blue Ridge ladies hold member-...

    Blue Ridge Country Club hosted its Member-Member, Member-Guest tournament last Tuesday with a six-six-six format that included six holes of best ball, six holes of alternating shot and six holes of captain’s choice.

  • Back to business for Cavaliers

     HILLSVILLE –– With six of Carroll County’s first seven volleyball matches on the road, there was virtually no chance, barring a catastrophic start to the season, that Cavalier coach Cindy Edwards would reach career win No. 300 on her home court.

    That didn’t mean that the milestone would go unrecognized once the team returned to familiar environs.

  • Galax escapes Mustangs

    ELLISTON –– Galax’s nondistrict win Friday at Eastern Montgomery seemed as if it would never end. Odd, considering the thing seemed to be over on about four separate occasions.

    Galax held off Floyd County 15-10 in the fifth set and notched an impressive 3-2 win over the Buffaloes as Allison White put away 20 kills.
