Lady Barons crushed by Park View, 71-17 / December 24, 2018

The Bluestone varsity girls basketball team played host to Park View on Thursday night and took another lopsided loss, by a 71-17 score.

Park View’s Nieya Hawkins led all players in the scoring column with 32 points. MyKia Harrison joined Hawkins in double figures with 11 points.

PV was ahead at the end of one, 32-5. By the time halftime came the visitors had taken the score to 44-9.

The Dragons outpaced the Lady Barons in the third period, 19-5, and in the final period 8-3 for the 71-17 win.

Park View must be commended for the way they dominated the entire game. Currently the Lady Dragons are 6-3 and having a decent season. PV returns to regular season action on Jan. 2 when they travel to Franklin.

The Lady Barons, though taking a thumping in most every game they’ve played this season, must also receive some recognition as this varsity squad is comprised mainly of freshmen with no varsity experience. They continue to come out, play and fight as hard as they can in their games.

These young girls are competitive and taking some of the losses they have this season, it’s a wonder they continue to show up. But they do show up and work as hard in practice as any other basketball team and Barons fans appreciate and support those efforts.

The Lady Barons return to play next Thursday in Halifax County High School at the Halifax Holiday Classic.
