High School

  • Galax, Grayson players advance

    Galax’s boys will be represented in regionals, two Grayson County boys and two Grayson girls have earned a spot, and Galax’s girls have picked up a regional win before completion of conference play as a busy tennis postseason got under way last week in Galax and Independence.

    Noah Hutchens of Galax won the Conference 39/46 singles championship and teamed up with Gage Cooke to claim the conference doubles title in play at Grayson County High School.

  • E&H an easy choice for Carrico

    INDEPENDENCE –– The decision to attend Emory & Henry College wasn’t a difficult one for Adam Carrico. But the Grayson County defensive end/linebacker won’t so much be entering Emory as he will be transferring.

  • Tide girls advance; Devils, Galax win

    Galax and Rural Retreat had little trouble advancing to the finals of the Conference 46 girls’ tennis tournament yesterday (Tuesday), each posting 5-0 wins in Monday’s semifinals.

    Rural Retreat eliminated Fort Chiswell while the Maroon Tide ousted George Wythe.

  • Cavaliers tee off on Demons

    CHRISTIANSBURG –– Carroll County belted five home runs, including three in stretch of four at-bats in the third inning, and the Cavaliers pounded Christiansburg 13-1 in a River Ridge District softball game Wednesday.

  • Maroon Tide roars past Fort Chiswell 13-3

    Having hammered Fort Chiswell by 22 runs three weeks earlier, Galax had to rally for the lead in the fifth before erupting for a 13-3, six-inning softball win in a Mountain Empire District game Tuesday at Mountain View Park.

  • Robinson commits to G’boro

    HILLSVILLE –– Chase Robinson said that when he broke a leg in a motorcycle accident the summer before his senior season, he thought his football future had been thrown out the window. Instead, he has found an open door.

    Robinson, a senior quarterback-defensive back at Carroll County, committed to play at Greensboro College last week in a signing ceremony at the CCHS media center, joined by his parents, Mark and Lori Robinson, and his sister Kirstin.

  • Kennedy picks Presbyterian

    HILLSVILLE –– Mattie Kennedy has been a Cavalier for the past four years and will be a Blue Hose for the next four. She has always been a Warrior.

    One of Carroll County’s all-time greats, Kennedy signed a letter-of-intent last week to play basketball for Presbyterian College, a member of the Division I Big South Conference. Ability got Kennedy to the top tier of NCAA basketball, but her unyielding personality on the hardwood sure didn’t hurt.
