SoVaNow.com / April 24, 2014
Park View’s varsity baseball team dealt the Halifax County High School varsity a 10-8 loss Tuesday night in South Hill.

HCHS had a strong hitting effort. But the Dragons managed to connect with key hits at the right time, with runners on. The loss dropped the Comets to 7-3.

HCHS started with Colby Grissom on the mound, and then brought on Chase Wilkerson.

Grissom did not have his best performance Tuesday, but still pitched well at times.
