  • Thomas, Cavaliers near perfect

     MARION –– Carroll County blew open a tight game with a six-run seventh inning and Rebecca Thomas flirted with perfection as the Cavaliers took an 8-0 win over Marion in a Southwest District softball game Thursday.

    Thomas retired the first 20 batters she faced until Brooke Pennington reached on an error with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Thomas still finished with a no-hitter, striking out 14 of the 22 batters she faced.

  • Devils steal another 1-run win

     An atmosphere that Galax hasn’t experienced on a baseball field in a number of years led to a state of affairs Grayson County is becoming all too familiar with.

  • Cavaliers rally from 5-0 deficit...

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County rallied from five runs down and edged Grayson County 6-5 in a nondistrict baseball game Thursday at Bill Worrell Field.

    Trailing 5-4, the Cavaliers got the tying and go-ahead runs when Jordan Lamb beat out an infield single, Brett Anauo walked and Craig Rosen drove in both runners with a two-out double.

  • Cavaliers rally again, top...

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County trailed Richlands 8-2 in the bottom of the fifth before rallying for a dramatic 9-8 win in a Southwest District baseball game Friday at Bill Worrell Field.

  • Galax wins rematch, 1-1

     Galax didn’t exactly beat Radford, but the Maroon Tide certainly left the field in a better mood than the last time the two teams met.

    Galax, which dropped a 4-0 decision to the Bobcats in the Group A state championship game last June, deflected charge after charge by Radford and answered a late goal with one of its own, holding on to salvage a 1-1 draw in a nondistrict match Friday night.

  • Cavaliers roll past Graham, 7-4

    HILLSVILLE -- If not for the fact that it is used as an actual soccer term, ‘shootout’ would have fit nicely in Carroll County’s win Monday over Graham.

    With 11 total goals scored, it is quite suitable nonetheless.

    Goals came early, often and in bunches at Tommy Thompson Field as the Cavaliers rolled past the G-Men 7-4 in a Southwest District match.

    Matt Felts and Lucas Webb combined for five goals and three assists for the Cavaliers.

  • Late surge lifts Galax past...

     Galax scored 15 runs in the span of two innings and thumped Narrows 16-3 in a Mountain Empire District baseball game Friday at Felts Park.

    Galax (8-3 overall, 2-1 district) broke a 1-1 tie by scoring six runs in the third inning, all coming with two outs and the bases empty. Todd Nichols and Travis Cockerham both doubled in the third.

    The first nine Maroon Tide batters to step to the plate all scored in the fourth before Narrows recorded an out. Galax coupled five hits with three Green Wave errors for the rally.

  • Bell wins third straight at MMS

     RADFORD –– The season is only three races old, but so far, Brent Bell is batting a perfect 1.000.

    Bell won his third Street Stock race in three starts on April 18, claiming both ends of the Price’s Body Shop/SCI Roofing Twin 30s at Motor Mile Speedway.

    Bell has put his Camaro on the pole for all three races and has led every lap of all three races at the .416-mile asphalt oval, jumping to an early 16-point lead in the season points standings.

  • Galax picks up first softball win

     Dee Walker slugged Galax into an early lead and the Maroon Tide blew the game open in the sixth inning to pick up its first win of the season, bashing Fort Chiswell 13-2 in a Mountain Empire District game Monday at Mountain View Park.

    Walker’s three-run home run spotted the Maroon Tide (1-7) a 4-1 lead in the third inning.

    Galax led 5-1 when it pushed eight runs across in the bottom of the sixth with six walks and singles by Bailey Shumate, Janisa Lawson and Channing Russell.

  • Cavs drop another tough one

     HILLSVILLE -- Michael Francis knocked in a loose ball in the final minutes Monday night to lift Marion to a 2-1 win in a Southwest District boys’ soccer match at Tommy Thompson Field.

    For the Cavaliers, the feeling of coming up on the short end of a one-goal match is too familiar.
