The Park View varsity girls won their season opener Monday in a 52-51 nail-biter over the Nottoway Lady Cougars. The Dragon girls, playing with impressive poise at the start of a new basketball season, were able to maintain their lead in the final minutes of the game.

Park View got off to a good start by taking a 9-8 lead over the Lady Cougars in the first quarter, but at halftime they were down 23-18.

Park View came back strong after halftime, scoring 18 points in the third quarter to Nottoway’s 14 points. The Lady Dragons continued their solid play in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Lady Cougars, 16-14.

Dare Wright was the player of the game with a triple double: 16 points, 15 rebounds and 13 blocks. Team captain Briana Rogers also had a big night with 22 points. Brittany Whitby added nine points.

“I’m very proud of our girls,” said Park View head coach Dale Gearhart, “They’re working very hard. We are improving and that’s a goal for us.”

Last year the Dragon girls won just two games — they’re already half way to that point after their first game.

“I believe in our girls and I believe that we can meet goals that we have set for this season,” said Gearhart.

The Lady Dragons are set to return to action tonight [Wednesday] for a home matchup with Central of Lunenburg.

“I’m not sure what to expect going into that game,” said Gearhart. “But if we can play together, play hard, play defense, and run the floor we’ll be okay.”
