With a pair of victories at home last week, the Park View girls volleyball team has sewn up the Tri-Rivers District regular season championship and locked themselves into the top seeding for the upcoming VHSL Class 3 East Region tournament. Put simply, the road to district and regional titles runs through Park View this postseason.

The Lady Dragons (19-3 overall, 16-0 district) faced the Lady Dukes of Windsor High School on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at Park View and prevailed handily. The Lady Dragons won three straight games to take the match, winning 25-13, 25-6 and 25-16.

The Lady Dragons also celebrated Senior Night on Tuesday, honoring the three seniors on this year’s team. Seniors recognized were Carson Wall, Cambra Graham and Kacey Wall.

Junior standout Courtlyn Hawkins led the way for Park View with 8 kills and 3 blocks followed by sophomore Deaona Watkins with 7 kills and 4 service aces. Sophomore Kaylee Coker had 3 kills and 2 blocks, senior Kacey Wall contributed 3 kills, junior Riley Grace Turner had 2 kills, senior Cambra Graham had 2 kills and 5 aces and senior Carson Wall added 2 kills, 2 aces and 9 assists.

On Thursday night the Lady Dragons hosted the Brunswick Lady Bulldogs for the final regular season match of the year. The Brunswick girls put up a fight but were overpowered by the talented Park View squad. The Dragons took the three-game sweep by scores of 25-10, 25-12 and 25-15.

Hawkins again dominated at the net with 10 kills, 2 blocks and a pair of service aces. Rounding out the performances for Park View were D. Watkins with 7 kills, C. Graham with 2 kills and an ace, C. Wall with 4 aces, 2 kills and 13 assists, Erin Bailey with a kill and 16 assists and Meredith Mosier with a pair of kills.

The Lady Dragons were set to host Windsor for the second time in as many weeks in the opening round of the 2019 Tri-Rivers District playoffs last night (Tuesday). The Lady Dukes (10-10 overall, 10-6 district) have an uphill battle but cannot be counted out. Their six district losses have all come at the hands of Park View, Southampton and Franklin, losing to all three schools twice this season. The winners of Tuesday’s contest will advance to face the winner of the Southampton-Franklin contest for the Tri-Rivers championship.
