Park View gets best of cross-county rival in volleyball tilt

SoVaNow.com / October 23, 2013
Lady Dragon netters 3-0 on the week with victories over Barons, pair of foes in Tri-Rivers District

The Park View Lady Dragons volleyball team played three matches last week and won all three to improve to 11-2 in conference play and 15-4 overall.

The Wednesday game featured cross-county rival Bluestone taking on the Lady Dragons at Park View. PV defeated the Lady Barons in three games to win the match.

Scores for the match were 25-15, 25-9 and 25-18. Park View enjoyed great frontline play and recorded several points at the net to tip the match in their favor.

Bluestone was able to hang with the Lady Dragons in the early part of each game, but Park View just kept the pressure on and basically wore the visitors down.

Just when it looked like Bluestone would gain the edge in game three, Park View’s defense tightened up and smashed any thoughts of the Lady Barons extending the match.

Dare Wright had 15 kills and 10 blocks for Park View. Odicci Alexander placed seven kills. Haley King scored five kills and had two blocks.

Setter Brooke Mason had a 16-assist game and also played well at the net.



Park View vs. Franklin

PV traveled to Franklin on Tuesday and shut down the host team in three straight games. Park View was too strong in every facet of this match.

Franklin never scored in double digits. Scores for the match were 25-4, 25-6 and 25-8.

Wright led her teammates, once again, with 10 kills and two blocks. King and Alexander had five kills each.



Park View vs. 
Brunswick

Park View traveled to Brunswick on Thursday and defeated the Lady Bulldogs in three games.

Wright spiked 17 kills in the match and added five blocks. Alexander scored six kills and played some good defense, getting in seven digs.



JVs follow suit with three wins

The jayvee Lady Dragons also had a great week, recording three wins. The team defeated Bluestone in two games, 25-11 and 25-9.

On Tuesday the jayvee girls took on Franklin and won with scores of 25-7 and 25-2. The junior Lady Dragons finished up last week by besting Brunswick on Thursday, 25-9 and 25-8.

The jayvees played a solid match against Bluestone and basically controlled the floor from game one. Park View recorded 15 kills in the match and just played better overall.
