Varsity boys No. 2 in league, girls continue growth
After six straight wins — all by fairly large margins — Hood River Valley High School varsity boys water polo hosted league rivals, the Reynolds Raiders, last Thursday for an action-packed matchup between the Mt.

Reynolds again proved too tough to overcome, as they finished with a 12-9 win to secure the No. 1 league position with about two weeks left in the regular season.
