The Park View volleyball team traveled to Emporia to face Greensville Thursday after seeing multiple games postponed due to Hurricane Florence. Greensville, 3-8 going into the tilt, couldn’t match the power of Park View and fell in straight sets, 25-5, 25-6 and 25-8.

Grayson Hudson led Park View with a season-high 11 kills and two aces. Power duo Courtlyn Hawkins and Deaona Watkins added nine kills each and Hawkins added four aces and Watkins recorded two. Rounding out the team’s performance were Cambra Graham (seven kills, two aces), Kacey Wall (two kills), Erin Bailey (four aces, 10 assists) and Carson Wall (two aces, 12 assists).

Park View saw three games postponed last week due to weather issues. Games against Windsor, Brunswick and Colonial Heights were postponed and should be re-scheduled.

Park View improved to 7-1 with the victory over Greensville. They were at Halifax County Monday.

Park View has a generous homestand as they face Franklin, Southampton, Halifax and Sussex Central. The Southampton game is crucial to the Lady Dragons’ hopes for a regular season Tri-Rivers District title. Park View’s only defeat this season came at the hands of the Lady Indians during a hard-fought contest at Courtland on August 28.

Riley Grace Turner threw down five kills and six aces as the jayvees got a victory on the road over Greensville Thursday. The Lady Dragons dropped the first set but then rallied to win the final two games to take the victory. The scores were 21-25, 25-13 and 17-15.

Kaylee Coker added four kills and five aces and Krislyn Johnson (5 kills), Kaitlyn Campbell (4 assists and 1 kill) and Paige Springer (3 assists, 4 aces) rounded out the production for Park View.
