Baron boys, girls felled in Conference 34 play / February 15, 2017
The Bluestone boys and girls varsity basketball teams opened Conference 34 Tournament action last week and both squads dropped their semifinal round contests to exit the tournament field and end their respective seasons.

The boys, who entered the tourney as the 5 seed, fell to fourth-seeded Nottoway on Thursday, 61-50. Nottoway will be the second Conference 34 team in the Region 2A tournament field after losing to top-seeded Amelia in the conference championship game on Saturday. Nottoway will be seeded fourth in regional action.

The girls entered the Conference 34 tournament as the 7 seed and played second-seeded Greensville. The Lady Barons played a decent game but ended up losing by 13 points, 50-37.

Greensville advanced to Region 2A competition as the 3 seed out of Conference 34 after falling to Conference 34 and Tri Rivers District rival Brunswick 47-42 on Saturday night.

The boys finished the regular season with a 9-7 record in James River District action. With the conference loss, the Barons finished the season at 10-11.

The girls offered some nice competition in their last game of the season after having a rocky 3-13 year in the JRD. Bluestone finished the season with a 3-19 overall mark.

The girls got good production in the Greensville loss from Iesha Hicks with 13 points and Aryanna Patrick with 10.

Leandre Lipscomb, who’d basically been quiet on offense the entire season, dropped in eight points.

Madison Lort added four points and Tiaa Canada contributed two.
