Park View boys basketball season comes to disappointing end / March 04, 2020

The Park View boys basketball season came to a disappointing close last Wednesday. The Dragons (17-9 13-5 TRD) were ambushed by Lakeland, 117-49 in the quarterfinal round of the VHSL Class 3 Region A tournament, in a game played at The Scope in Norfolk.

Park View, the fifth seed in the tournament, had advanced to the quarterfinals by defeating 12th seed York at Park View on the previous Saturday, 67-54. The Cavaliers, the fourth seed, advanced by defeating New Kent and then moved on to face the one seed Hopewell on Saturday. The Cavaliers defeated the Blue Devils 61-58 to win the regional tournament.

One has to consider the 2019/20 Dragons season a success despite the early exit. The Dragons won 17 games, including a quality wins over Brunswick County on Jan. 29 and a pair of victories against in-county rivals Bluestone. But a pair of losses to Greensville County, whom the Dragons couldn’t tame, and a loss to Brunswick County in the district tournament semifinals cast a shadow on an otherwise impressive season.

Barring circumstances beyond their control, next season looks to be promising. With the merger of Bluestone and Park View looming next season, it could prove to be the last hurrah for the Dragons and they’ll no doubt have ample motivation for success. There is a talented crop of underclassmen ready and waiting to make that happen.
