  • REMEMBER WHEN: May 11-17


    A two-out error in the bottom of the seventh spoiled a perfect game but Carroll County’s Rebecca Thomas still struck out 14 and finished with a no-hitter in an 8-0 win over Marion. Carroll took the lead for good in the first with two runs off of successive singles by Grace Ayers, Lillie Kimble, Lexi Hodge and Megan Snow.

  • Maroon Tide avenges another

    The first time through the Mountain Empire District portion of its baseball schedule wasn’t exactly kind to Galax. The Maroon Tide is finding the back end of the series much more to its liking.

    For the second day in a row Galax avenged an earlier loss to an MED foe, this time jumping out to an eight-run lead and holding on down the stretch to claim an 8-4 win over Fort Chiswell Wednesday at Felts Park.

    Quesenberry, a 20-year-old Roanoke College student and a member of the Maroons’ cross country and track teams, posted a time of 37 minutes, 28 seconds on the 6.2-mile course, which began and ended at the Dannelly Fitness Park on the New River Trail State Park.

  • REMEMBER WHEN: May 4-10

  • Spartans overtake Cavs late

    HILLSVILLE –– It took Carroll County five innings to get runners on base with less than two outs, and once that happened, the Cavaliers made the most of it. It took one inning for Salem to lay that to waste.

    The Spartans responded to Carroll County’s lone rally with two of their own, pulling away late to take a 6-2 River Ridge District win Wednesday at Bill Worrell Field.

    Galax High School graduate and former Maroon Tide coach Corbitt Hairston has been recommended to be the new girls’ basketball coach at Salem High School.

    Hairston has been in the Salem system since 1999 and has been the girls’ coach at Andrew Lewis Middle School since 2004. He was a boys’ JV assistant and head coach at Salem during the previous six years.

    A 1989 Galax graduate, Hairston is expected to receive approval from the Salem School Board when it meets May 13, according to a Salem High news release.

  • Floyd surges past Cavs 6-4

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County did just about everything right, all game long. Floyd County, it turns out, was just saving up.

    The Cavaliers were two outs away from notching an impressive 4-0 victory over the Buffaloes when the visitors exploded for six runs in the top of the seventh, stealing a 6-4 nonconference win from Carroll Thursday afternoon.

  • Grayson sticks come alive

    INDEPENDENCE –– Carroll County has been waiting all season to be healthy. Grayson County has been waiting since opening to day to show a pulse again at the plate. The waning of the Cavaliers’ physical infirmities will help them down the road, but Grayson’s bats gave a more immediate benefit with some serious signs of life on Wednesday.
