Softball at Pendleton:
Hood River Valley High School varsity softball took revenge over the Pendleton Buckaroos this week with a 15-4 road win that followed last Saturday’s doubleheader loss to the same team. Annie Veatch gets the highlight reel in the game with two home runs and four RBI, while Kayla Byers tallied eight strikeouts in a complete game.
As of Friday, the 11-5 Eagles sit in the 5A No. 4 position behind Sandy, Liberty and Pendleton.

After dropping 5-2 and 6-0 games last weekend in a home doubleheader against Pendleton, the Eagles traveled to the Buckaroos Tuesday, where they played to a hard-hitting 15-11 loss. Kellan duffy led the batting frenzy with four RBI, while Patrick Harvey and Ryan Ward had two hits each.
“The games Saturday were very competitive and we felt like it could have gone either way,” coach Erich Harjo said. “Our team is close to putting it all together, it has just taken longer than we thought it would. I have the confidence in my team to come together and work out this slump.”
After tough back-to-back losses against Oregon Episcopal (18-6 and 13-4), the Hood River Valley High School varsity girls lacrosse team rebounded Thursday with a 9-8 road win against Cleveland (stats unavailable as of presstime Friday). The team hosts Clackamas in a non-league game Saturday, 2 p.m. at Westside School.
As expected, defending state champion Oregon Episcopal School gave the HRVHS varsity boys lacrosse team a tough time in the Eagles’ first league game of the season on the road Tuesday. The Eagles looked to rebound from the 17-4 loss with a home game Friday (results unavailable as of presstime) against Cleveland.
Dan Kuechmann scored a 74 last week at the Pendleton High School Invitational to finish in second place out of the field of 10 teams.
