Park View is preparing for their basketball season opener Monday, against cross-county rival Bluestone, and new boys head coach Danny Watson has reason to like what he’s seen out of the varsity squad so far.

Last week, Park View hosted Matoaca for a pre-season scrimmage in South Hill. Mataoca, a former Southside District rival of Park View’s, now sits two classes higher than Park View in the VHSL classification system. Despite that, the 3A Dragons gave the 5A Warriors all they could handle in exhibition play.

While official scores are not kept during pre-season scrimmages, the Dragons acquitted themselves quite well — playing more or less even with the Warriors in all but one quarter. There are definitely kinks to be worked out and the final roster isn’t set yet, but there are reasons to be optimistic.

Both the Dragon boys and girls varsity basketball teams will open the 2017-18 season by hosting the Bluestone Barons at Park View High School on Monday. Games start at 6 p.m.
