  • Carroll County falls short in...

    HILLSVILLE –– Carroll County had one of its better days of the season Saturday, as far as turnovers go. But the Cavaliers will be hurting for the rest of the year due to one big traveling call.

    Carroll County cut a 16-point third-quarter deficit to three points before fading down the stretch in a 60-45 Southwest District loss Saturday to Richlands. Secondary to the outcome was the farewell bid to one of the Cavaliers’ more popular players, Damone Jackson.

  • Cavalier wrestlers go 3-0 in quad

    HILLSVILLE –– Ideally, late January is the perfect time for wrestling teams to peak. Going 7-1 in dual matches last week, Carroll County appears to be heading in that direction.

  • Third quarter run lifts G-Men

    HILLSVILLE –– In many of Carroll County’s defeats this season, the Cavaliers have played evenly for two quarters and been overrun in the other two. Tuesday, Carroll County cut it down to one bad quarter. But it was still plenty enough for Graham.

  • Second-half surge leads Grayson...

  • Maroon Tide pulls away for win

    INDEPENDENCE –– Galax and Grayson County entered Mountain Empire District play Friday as the two winningest teams in the league through the nondistrict portion of their schedules. The gap between No. 1 and No. 2 may not be as great as many might have believed.

  • Bulldogs bite Cavaliers 79-61

    HILLSVILLE – A game that started out with so much promise turned out to be another tough loss for the Carroll County varsity boys Friday night.

    The Cavaliers (2-11 overall, 1-3 district) entered the game having lost eight of their last nine games, and Friday ended no different as Tazewell (4-6, 2-1) came in and dominated them on their home court, taking a 79-61 Southwest District win.

    The Cavs began the game strong, scoring 11 of the game’s first 14 points.

  • Lady Cavs hold on for 49-46 win

    HILLSVILLE – Carroll County remained undefeated and number one in the district following a 49-46 girls’ win over Tazewell Friday night.

    The Cavs opened the game up on a mission to put the Lady Dogs away early, outscoring them 16-7 in the first eight minutes.
