  • Grayson gets past G-Girls

    INDEPENDENCE –- Normally, a first-round tournament game against a two-win opponent is just a tune-up for the next stage. Grayson County opened postseason play against a two-win Graham team, but a club with an entirely different look for the playoffs.

    The Blue Devils built an early 14-point lead but had to claw past the G-Girls, who had a recent addition with the return of a four-year starter, holding off Graham 52-48 in the Conference 39 girls’ quarterfinals Monday.

  • Cavs on task in 41-point win

    HILLSVILLE –– On more than one occasion this season, Carroll County girls’ basketball coach Marc Motley has had reservations about his team during pregame warm-ups. Tuesday was one of those nights, and Motley asked his kids to prove him wrong about what he felt was a lack of focus.

    There is being focused, and then there is being locked on.

  • Devils leave Cats behind

    INDEPENDENCE –– Grayson County dominated the fourth quarter and took a big 71-54 win over Virginia High in a Conference 39 game Wednesday.

    Leading 45-44, the Blue Devils (8-10) pulled out to a 54-46 lead as Jake Hollingsworth and Tanner McPherson each scored from the foul line and added a driving layup.

    The Bearcats pulled back to within 56-50 on a Ryan BRadley 3-pointer with 3:24 to go but Grayson closed out the game with a 15-4 run fueled by its defense.

  • Cougars steal win from Cavs

    HILLSVILLE –– The National Transportation Safety Board would have a whale of a time sorting out Monday night’s River Ridge District clash between Carroll County and Pulaski County as both teams experienced a train wreck. The Cougars were able to walk away from theirs.

    Carroll County dominated in every phase of the game up to the mid-point of the third quarter but Pulaski County rallied from a 27-point hole over the final 12 minutes and stunned the Cavaliers 79-72 in overtime.

  • Cavaliers win two on Hall of...

    HILLSVILLE –– It was a special night at Carroll County High School last Friday. Besides a pair of varsity games against Christiansburg, it was also induction night for five new members to the Carroll County Sports Hall of Fame.

    One of the inductees was Marc Motley, the girls’ head coach. He proved one reason for his induction when his team scored a resounding 70-36 victory over the Blue Demons in a River Ridge District game.

  • Maroon Tide ends slide

    Galax unveiled a new offense Friday night, one that head coach Verl Brown called a 4-1. After its debut, it is 1-for-1.

    In a physical affair that suited the Maroon Tide, Galax picked up its second win of the year with a bumpy, grindy 45-40 Conference 46 win over Rural Retreat.

  • Maroon Tide holds off Devils

    INDEPENDENCE –– Galax quickly built a nine-point lead and fended off numerous Grayson County comeback attempts to take a 44-34 Mountain Empire District girls’ win Saturday evening.

    The Maroon Tide (5-5) never trailed after scoring the game’s first four points and led 12-3 on Halle Bryant’s putback at the two-minute mark of the first quarter. The Blue Devils (2-8), fresh off a win over then- once-beaten Narrows, made one run after another at Galax but were unable to draw even.

  • Cavaliers fall short of Bruins

    HILLSVILLE –– Adam Horton caught the inbounds pass inside the jump circle, wheeled and launched a near-halfcourt 3-pointer that hit nothing but nylon as time expired. The only thing between the Carroll County forward and hero status was one defensive stop that would have made his heave a game-winner.
