The Park View volleyball team finished second in the Tri-Rivers District tournament last week by defeating Windsor and then losing to Southampton in the championship game by a 3-0 score.

Playing three matches in three days, the Lady Dragons faced Windsor twice en route to making the finals. Although they fell short of the TRD title, the PV girls walked away with a three-seed in the VSHL Region 3A tournament that gets underway this week. They earned a bye in first-round regional action Monday and will open postseason play tonight [Wednesday] at home against the first-round winner, York or Petersburg, in Monday’s matchup between the two schools.

Earlier this season, the Lady Dukes of Windsor High School came to Park View and handed the Lady Dragons a 3-1 defeat. On Monday, Oct. 25, the Park View girls made the nearly two-hour bus ride to meet Windsor in their final regular season Tri-Rivers District match.

If the Lady Dragons could defeat the Windsor, they would earn a return trip to Windsor Tuesday night for the opening game of the TRD tourney. With a loss Monday, Park View would have traveled to Courtland to face their district nemesis, the Southampton Lady Indians.

The Lady Dragons got the win Monday night, handily defeating Winsor in three straight games 26-24, 25-21, and 25-16.

The next night, Tuesday, Oct. 26, the girls made their second trip to Windsor in as many nights, but fatigue didn’t seem to be an issue as the Lady Dragons whipped Windsor for the second time in a row to advance to the Tri-Rivers District championship game against Southampton High School.

In Wednesday’s championship match — held at Courtland, giving the girls their third long bus trip of the week — the grueling challenges of district tournament play finally caught up to Park View as the girls lost to Southampton, 3-0. With the finish, Park View claimed second place in the Tri-Rivers District.

That was good for a third seed and a bye in the opening round of the VHSL Region 3A tournament that began on Monday. The Lady Dragons will open the tournament at home against the winner of the York-Petersburg game from round 1. That game will be played tonight in South Hill.
