The Park View High School varsity girls’ basketball team earned three wins on the hardwood last week including a 53-34 win over cross-county rival Bluestone HS on Friday night in Skipwith.
The victory was the fifth straight for the Lady Dragons to improve them to 9-1 on the season. Park View finished the month with a 5-1 mark in Tri-Rivers District play.
“We’ve played well in the first ten games,” said Park View coach Michael Barmoy. “The last two games we have played well in spurts. We came out and were sloppy tonight but were able to get it going.”
The win over Bluestone was also a special game for Lady Dragons’ senior point guard Mikya Harrrison who scored the 1,000th point of her high-school career with a trey at the 5:42 mark of the third quarter which gave Park View a 36-18 lead.
“She’s had a good three and a half years,” said Barmoy. “It’s a great accomplishment. She has grown as a basketball player and she’s a more complete basketball player now.”
