District run comes to end for Lady Barons

SoVaNow.com / February 19, 2014


After taking a close 45-40 victory over #6 seed Nottoway in the quarterfinal round of the James River District tournament on Monday (Feb. 10), the third-seeded Lady Barons of Bluestone couldn’t pull off the road win at no. 2 seed Amelia on Tuesday.

The Lady Raiders defeated Bluestone 46-40 to move on to the JRD championship game on Sunday. Amelia went on to lose the championship final to no. 4 seed Goochland in double overtime.

The win doesn’t leave the Lady Barons with nowhere to go, however, as Bluestone qualified play in the Quad-Rivers Conference 34 postseason tournament scheduled to begin last night (Tuesday).

The Lady Barons, who fell to a #4 seed, were scheduled to host fifth-seeded Greensville in Skipwith last night.

Win or lose, the ladies will play again on Thursday, but any losses from there forward will result in elimination for the Lady Barons.

Team stats in the girls’ loss to Amelia Tuesday were not available at press time.
