  • Brothers in arms nip Grayson

    INDEPENDENCE -- Going through an entire pitching staff in a seven-inning game is usually a sure sign of disaster. Wednesday, using a lot of arms gave Carroll County a leg up on Grayson County.

  • Cavs outduel Maroon Tide

    An adjustment in the cut of uniform, a change of names here and there and the removal of the ‘nondistrict’ label, and it may as well have been 30 years ago. After years of blowouts followed by 18 years of not playing one another at all, Carroll County and Galax put on a battle worthy of the ones common between the two in the 70s and 80s, with the Cavaliers escaping the Tide 2-1 in a non-league meeting Wednesday night in Felts Park.

  • However briefly, Cavs the...

    BLUEFIELD -- It doesn’t look like it will last for very long, but Carroll County is atop the Southwest District baseball standings in mid-May.

  • Late surge can’t lift...

    HILLSVILLE -- A late flurry of activity very nearly brought Carroll County to within striking distance, but a disallowed goal helped keep Tazewell out of reach as the Bulldogs took a 4-1 win over Carroll County in a Southwest District girls’ soccer match Thursday at Tommy Thompson Field. The Cavaliers (3-9 overall, 2-8 district) trailed 3-0 before Summer Rigney sparked Carroll County in the 61st minute, taking a long direct kick from Lauren Roper, ge

  • Devils finish MED on hot streak
