Comet girls win opener with ease, 66-41





Bluestone girls play host Thursday as top seed in region tourney / November 06, 2019
The Bluestone volleyball team (17-3,13-3) had a solid regular season in the James River District and now continue in post-season as the No. 1 seed in the VHSL Region 2A volleyball tournament.

The region ranking means the girls have a first-round bye and will host the Nov. 5 winner of the Nandua (No. 8) vs. Prince Edward (No. 9) match. Prince Edward competes in the JRD and finished the season with a record of 6-12, 4-12 in the district, for seventh place.

Bluestone defeated PE in both of their matches this season by the score of 3-0. Out of the six sets played the closest score was 25-20.

The Nandua Lady Warriors (Onley, Va.) compete in the Eastern Shore District and finished the season at 7-15. Their district is comprised of four teams, Chincoteague, Arcadia, Northampton and Nandua.

But the region tournament is a totally different beast than regular season play, and Bluestone will have to be on top of their game, no matter which team they compete against on Thursday. It was only last season when then-No. 9 seed Bruton traveled to Skipwith and upset one seed Bluestone 3-2.

Bruton eventually moved on to the 2A state quarterfinals before falling to Madison High School, 3-0. Bruton, a member of the Bay Rivers District, didn’t make the nine-team field in the tournament this year.
