  • Hey, Junior, we’re...

    Fan favorite and Hendrick Motorsports driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

  • Galax edges Cavs in final seconds

    HILLSVILLE -- With the scoreboard clock stopping at two minutes due to official time being kept on the field of play, stoppage time in a soccer match can seem to drag on forever. For Carroll County, it dragged on just a few seconds too long.

    Having just knotted the match at 1-1 and the clock stuck at 2:00, Carroll County’s hopes were dashed when Galax’s Jorge Mendez connected with a penalty kick inside a minute from the final whistle as the Maroon Tide escaped with a 2-1 nondistrict win Monday at Tommy Thompson Field.

  • Lady Cavaliers pick up first win

    HILLSVILLE -- Laken Hall and Cynthia Arrellano combined for three goals and two assists Monday as Carroll County blanked Galax 5-0 in a nondistrict girls’ soccer match at Tommy Thompson Field.

    “We were coming off a really tough loss to Patrick County,” said Cavalier coach Wayne Edmonds. “We played hard, we just didn’t put it all together. Tonight we put it together. We kept pressure on them, I think we were on their side of the field most of the second half, we went deep into our bench, and I’m just proud of them.”

  • Cox, Alouf power Tide past Cats

    RADFORD -- Having played three five-inning games thus far this season, Galax has been shortchanged nearly an entire game -- six innings -- due to the mercy rule.

    The Maroon Tide got its money’s worth Monday.

    In its first seven-inning outing of the young season, Galax got timely hitting, solid pitching and excellent production from the heart of its order in taking a 7-4 nondistrict win at the Radford Recreation Park.

  • Houk inks with Emory & Henry

    Tyler Houk is picking a good time to be an Emory and Henry Wasp.

    Foremost, Emory and Henry notched 16 football wins in the past three seasons after winning just 19 in the previous five. Secondly, the program is gaining continuity as this year’s senior class is the first to play all four years under head coach Don Montgomery.

    And third, win or lose, the E&H football program is on its way to having some pretty sweet digs.

  • Cavs thump G-Men, Tide blanks...

    BLUEFIELD –– Carroll County scored multiple runs in four of the first five innings Tuesday and rolled to a 10-4 win over Graham in the Cavaliers’ Southwest District opener.

    Carroll County (4-1 overall, 1-0 district) scored two runs in each of the first two innings, including a two-run Jordan Lamb double in the second, and the Cavaliers added three runs in both the third and fifth frames.

  • Devils open MED with win

    The little things. It all comes down to the little things.

    Both Grayson County coach Tim Hollingsworth and Galax coach Verl Brown talked about the little things following Grayson’s 11-0 Mountain Empire District win Tuesday at Mountain View Park. They spoke in different terms, though.

    “We’re young and we’ve just got to learn how to win, staying involved in the game and doing the little things,” said Hollingsworth, whose Blue Devils won their first after an 0-2 start. “We need to learn the little things that win ballgames.”

  • Door to the past makes pit stop...

    The thousands of customers beating a path in and out of the Galax Wal-Mart last Wednesday through Saturday probably had no idea they were just a few feet away from Jimmy Johnson and his race car.

  • Galax pounds Floyd for first win

    FLOYD -- Galax banged out 14 hits and broke into the win column in a big way Friday, rolling past Floyd County 13-3 in five innings in a nondistrict game.

    The Maroon Tide (1-1) scored four runs in each of the first two innings and coasted the rest of the way.

    Tyler Houk was 4-for-4 with four RBI and slugged a solo home run to lead off the fourth inning for the Maroon Tide. Jacob Woodel, Brock Cox and Eddie Hanks added two hits each.

  • Phone tag with Kenny Wallace

    It’s embarrassing really...A person like Kenny Wallace takes the time to sit down and talk with you on the phone, dials your numbers, and you miss the call.

    What am I talking about?

    Last week, I was scheduled to have an interview with Wallace over the phone. The interview was scheduled for 1 p.m., only I missed the call.

    After leaving me a voice message, Wallace called back minutes later...Again, I wasn’t near my phone.

    Thatss twice, if you lost count!
