Bluestone, Park View, Halifax battle it out in cross-country matchup

South Boston News / August 30, 2017

The Bluestone boys cross-country team has been practicing hard for the 2017 season.

Bluestone will host Cumberland, Goochland and Prince Edward high schools Wednesday to begin James River District action.

The team held its final scrimmage of the preseason on Monday at Occoneechee State Park. Halifax and Park View participated in the meet and all seemed to have some decent squads.

Halifax’s Jax Bosiger won the boys individual race, with a time of 19:20. Bluestone claimed the next two spots, with Frank Csorba placing second with 19:33 and Brendan King third with a time of 20:30.

Bluestone did not bring a girls team, so Park View and Halifax were left to battle it out. Park View’s Britani Hayes took first place for the girls with a time of 25:33.

Halifax took the next five positions with Abby Casen placing second with a time of 28:23.

In preseason action last week, Bluestone traveled to Halifax for a scrimmage.

Coach Tyler Reese said of last week’s competition, “The course was a really great test for the team as it was one of the more difficult courses we will face in the regular season.

“Times were a little slower than we would have liked but were what we expected for the course difficulty. “
