  • REMEMBER WHEN: January 4-10


    Grayson County was 10-of-17 from 3-point range and defeated Carroll County 89-66. Tyler Rutherford hit five treys and scored 24 for the Blue Devils.



    Baylie Snyder scored 33 points for Galax, including 19 in the fourth quarter, but Bland slipped by with a 77-75 overtime win. Marra Smith (19 points) and Amber Walker (18) also had a big game for the Maroon Tide.

  • Galax counters Devil defense

    INDEPENDENCE –– The game plan for Grayson County was a sound one. Galax’s was a successful one.

    Countering a gimmick defense with pressure and an emphasis on post scoring, the Maroon Tide was able to pull away from the Blue Devils and notch a 63-46 win in a Mountain Empire District game Friday night.

  • Grayson Co. subdues Pioneers

    MAX MEADOWS –– Grayson County has been there, starting four talented sophomores, as did Fort Chiswell on Friday night in the Mountain Empire District girls’ opener for both schools. The difference is, that was two years ago for the senior-laden Blue Devils.

    A young Fort Chiswell team full of potential played evenly with Grayson County for the first half until the Blue Devils buckled down defensively after intermission, pulling away from a tie game to notch a 49-37 win.

  • Larrowe, McGrady pick up VHSL...

    The high school volleyball season has been over for about a month but the honors keep coming in for two Twin County players.

    Galax’s Haley Larrowe was named to the first team of the Group 1A all-state team and Grayson County’s Camryn McGrady was selected as a second-team choice on the Group 2A all-state team in voting released recently by the Virginia High School League.

  • Strategy pays off in Cav win

    Carroll County made it quite clear from the opening tip that the Cavaliers weren’t going to let one man beat them. Even if that strategy worked out – which it did –  the game wasn’t going to win itself. Winston Giles and Noah Johnson took care of that part in Carroll’s 45-44 nondistrict win in Galax.

  • REMEMBER WHEN: December 14-20


    Grayson County scored 53 second-half points and ran away from Floyd County 77-69. Eric Harvey scored 26 points for Grayson, which got 16 from Tyler Rutherford, 14 from Bubba Bowen and 12 from Steven Eller.

    Kayla Goins scored 25 points and topped 1,000 for her career as Carroll County got past Pulaski County 57-52. The Cavaliers rallied from seven points down in the third period for the win.



  • Cavs click in win over Eagles

    HILLSVILLE –– The question has probably popped up from time to time in the minds of the fans of Carroll County girls’ basketball this year – Just how good can this group be? For a stretch during the second half Wednesday, Cavalier coach Marc Motley believes he found out.

    Carroll County broke open a tight ballgame by outscoring G.W. Danville 21-6 in the third quarter, rolling to a 71-53 win in a rematch of last year’s Conference 24 semifinals.

  • Tide pulls away from Cavaliers

    HILLSVILLE –– For three quarters, Carroll County wouldn’t let Galax put the game away. So Clif Conley and Caleb Bartlett kept putting away shots.

    The Maroon Tide backcourt duo combined for nine 3-pointers and 40 points Friday night as Galax finally pulled away to a relatively comfortable 59-45 nondistrict win over the Cavaliers.

  • Frost, Devils jump on Marion

    INDEPENDENCE –– It would have been a wise move for the Grayson County athletic department to store up some extra basketballs for this season. A couple of them are destined to become keepsakes.

    Blue Devil senior guard Meredith Frost pumped in 21 points and took home the game ball after topping 1,000 career points Tuesday night as Grayson County posted an impressive 61-45 win over Marion.

  • CC can’t measure up to Buffs

    FLOYD COUNTY –– There are a lot of positives to be found in playing Floyd County the first game of the year. The final score isn’t commonly one of them.

    Carroll County spent most of the third quarter erasing a five-point deficit, but the Buffaloes broke open a tie game with a 9-1 run to start the fourth period and pulled away to a 51-40 nondistrict girls’ basketball win Wednesday. It was the season opener for both teams.
