Bluestone scrimmage cancelled / August 21, 2019
Bluestone's scrimmage against Chatham High School set for Friday was cancelled due to some logistics issues.

This leaves Bluestone with one preseason game on tap before regular season action begins. Bluestone will host Franklin County on Friday night in Skipwith to close out preseason play.

Bluestone takes on John Marshall High School of the Colonial District to open the season Aug. 30 in Skipwith. The Barons will follow up that game with the King of the County contest against Park View in Skipwith on Sept. 6. Both of these matchups are with non-district foes.

Though the Barons had good participation in their voluntary off-season workouts and have had some solid practices, it will be interesting to see how Bluestone responds as the team enters the regular season.
