The Bluestone volleyball team appeared to be on their way to celebrating senior night last Thursday before dropping three games in a row to visiting Buckingham

Bluestone was up 2-0. Game two of the contest seemed to test Bluestone’s resolve but the girls responded with a tremendous effort to squeak out a 27-25 win.

But as game three began, Buckingham had built some momentum from game two and they got off to a quick start. The Lady Barons struggled and were down by six points at one time.

Bluestone battled back but just couldn’t seem to get back in the groove. Over the final two games the Lady Barons played well in streaks, but not with the assurance they had shown in games one and two.

The team is scheduled to play two games this week, against Cumberland and Colonial Heights, and begin the James River District volleyball tournament this Saturday.

Bluestone vs Nottoway:

In this match Bluestone won the first game, 25-20 before losing the next three games. Scores in the following three were 14-25, 15-25, and 11-25. The loss dropped the Lady Barons to 4-12 in the JRD and 4-14 overall.
