One of the best fall sports seasons, if not the best fall sports seasons in the history of Hood River Valley High School concluded the week before last, culminating with the boys soccer team’s second-consecutive 5A state title.
HRV ruled the roost this season in the Columbia River Conference, with boys soccer, girls soccer, volleyball, and boys cross country winning the CRC. Water polo also found success, with both the boys and girls taking the top spots in the Metro 5A Conference.
