Park View takes top seed to conference tournament

SoVaNow.com / February 19, 2014
Due to severe winter weather, the Tri-Rivers District boys and girls basketball tournaments over the weekend were canceled.
Between making up regular season games that had already been canceled due to winter weather and preparing for upcoming conference playoff action, the tournament organizers didn’t feel the games were necessary.

The Park View Dragon boys is they will be the number-one seed as play begins in the 3-A Conference 25 tournament. First round tournament games were scheduled to start last night (Tuesday) with the Dragons hosting both a boys and girls game in South Hill.

In Tri-Rivers District regular season action, the Brunswick Bulldogs finished in first place — but Brunswick is competing in a different conference than Park View in the postseason, clearing the way for the Dragons to take the top seed in the Conference 25 tournament.

Under the new VHSL conference alignment, Brunswick will be paired with Bluestone, Nottoway and other 2-A schools in the 2-A Quad-Rivers 34 Conference.

In their conference opener Tuesday night, Dragons were set to take on no. 8 seed Poquoson at 7 p.m. while the Lady Dragons drew a matchup with Southampton at 5:30.

Each team has the opportunity to advance, win or lose, but after Thursday, a loss will result in elimination for the teams.
