Lady Trojans get 3-1 win over Nottoway / October 04, 2017
In honor of those who have battled or are currently battling childhood cancer, the Bluestone Middle School volleyball team donned their gold jerseys before taking on the visiting Nottoway County last week.

The Bluestone struck first to seize the early momentum. Led by a strong serving performance by seventh grader Cassidy Newcomb, who scored four aces, Bluestone took set one, 25-19.
Bluestone battled hard during the second set, which saw several ties and lead changes between the two squads. Sixth graders Mallory Gordon, Amelia Whittington and Grace Newcomb all contributed to the hard-fought effort with a combined five aces. However, Nottoway was able to generate momentum late and overtook Bluestone in set two, 25-21.

Sets three and four were all Bluestone as the Lady Trojans played one of their best defensive games of their season, limiting Nottoway to five points in their third set victory, 25-5. Bluestone battled from behind early in the fourth set to take the set and the match 27-25.

In Southside Conference Middle School action last week, the Bluestone traveled to South Hill Country Club to take on Park View for the final golf match of the regular season. Bluestone played well from the start, grabbing the win while shooting a season-low 184 to Park View’s 218.

Leading the way for the Trojans were Devin Farrar and Taylor Seamens, both shooting a 44. Davis Bowen and Cameron Shriver also placed with each having scores of 48.

Park View was led in scoring by Tyler Bishop with a 49. Also placing for Park View were Christian Ingram (54), Michael Cheely (57) and Cameron Lynch (58).

Bluestone finished the season 5-4, 5-3 conference.
