  • Carroll County Rec. to offer...

    HILLSVILLE –– Registration is now underway by the Carroll County Parks and Recreation Department for a youth wrestling club.

    The club will be open for students in K-8th grade, with the program beginning in March and ending in mid-October. It will meet every Tuesday and Thursday at the Woodlawn School gymnasium from 6-7:30 p.m.

    Fees are $25 for registration, and a mandatory $15 fee to Coach for USA membership card.

  • Tide advances past Rebels

    The Galax girls’ basketball team had been in the gym just twice in 10 days when it finally began play Monday in the much-delayed Conference 46 tournament. All that really matters now is that the Maroon Tide will be in the gym at least once more.

  • Spurlin repeats, Lawrence takes...

    SALEM –– For the wrestlers who reached the championship round of the Virginia High School League state wrestling tournament last year, there was an excruciating wait of some 30 hours between the semifinals and the finals. In an effort to get the 2015 event concluded before another wave of winter weather hit Southwest Virginia, states were condensed into one afternoon and evening Friday at the Salem Civic Center.

    Galax’s Caleb Spurlin did his part to speed things along.

  • REMEMBER WHEN: February 1-7

     2010

    Carroll County remained unbeaten in Southwest District play and used a 14-1 run over the final four minutes to win 47-37 at Grundy. Kayla Goins poured in 25 points to go with 14 rebounds.

    Galax rallied from five points down by scoring the final 11 points of the game in a 71-65 win over Narrows. The win avenged a 24-point defeat to the Green Wave three weeks earlier. Justin Hash, Deion George and Devae Goins all scored between 18 and 20 points for Galax.

     

  • Grayson muscles past Graham

    INDEPENDENCE –– Facing a Graham team that had advanced to the first week of February without suffering a loss in Mountain Empire District play, Grayson County’s girls probably expected a battle. The Blue Devils’ 17-point win should surely make convalescing from all the bumps, bruises and general soreness a lot easier to handle.

  • Immobile, Adams was far from...

    Tommy Adams spent the last 40 years of his life paralyzed from the neck down, other than having very limited control of his right hand. In his own way, he took pity on the rest of us.

  • CCSO plans annual Basketball...

    HILLSVILLE –– Few basketball teams devote eight months out of the year to practice, but the athletes of Carroll County Special Olympics do so every year on Sunday afternoons at the Woodlawn School gym.

  • Galax loses longtime fan Tommy...

    Longtime Galax High School and Twin County sports fan Tommy Adams passed away Wednesday at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. He was 54.

  • Blue Devils grind past Galax

    Galax executed a near-perfect defensive game plan for its rematch with league-leading Grayson County. Having dropped a 17-point loss in Independence on Jan. 9, the Maroon Tide allowed almost no uncontested shots from 16 feet in on Friday, beat and banged in the paint, played physical basketball from start to finish and held the Blue Devils’ two leading scorers to 11 points below their combined average and, not coincidentally, Grayson to 11 points below its season scoring average.

  • REMEMBER WHEN: January 25-31

    2010

    Kayla Goins recorded a triple-double for the second time in three days, leading Carroll County over Abingdon 56-46 with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 steals. Goins had a triple-double two days earlier and was a single rebound short of one the day before, which would have given her three triple-doubles for the week.

    Eric Harvey pumped in 29 points while Tyler Rutherford and Jake Blizzard scored 14 apiece as Grayson County rolled over Narrows 81-57.
