HRV Athletes of the Month


Kara Kiyokawa


Justin Crosswhite

The Hood River Valley High School Athletic Department recently announced its athletes of the month for September: Justin Crosswhite and Kara Kiyokawa. Crosswhite, a senior, is a captain on the boys cross country team, which took first place in their first official three meets of the season. Crosswhite was a large component of that, taking first overall in both the Ultimook and Skip Sparks invites, as well as taking third at the highly competitive Nike Portland XC Invite, where he placed third with a personal record time of 15 minutes, 58 seconds. Kiyokawa, also a senior, is a four-year varsity player on the girls soccer team. Kiyokawa earned her award by helping secure HRV’s defensive line by shifting to center back, and by “working tirelessly through a difficult non-league schedule. Kiyokawa was also praised for her “exemplary” effort and positivity displayed in both games and in practice.
