Eagles beat Franklin, Gresham to start the season 2-0
The HRV boys varsity tennis team started their season last week with a bang, defeating Franklin, 5-3, on March 16, and then crushing Gresham, 7-1, two days later (HRV was scheduled to play Century on March 19, but the match was cancelled due to a scheduling conflict.)
After suffering a heartbreaking overtime loss last Tuesday, the HRV girls lacrosse team wasted no time bouncing back, doubling up Central Catholic, 16-8, during an away game Thursday evening.
HRV wrapped up what was already an impressive first week with another blowout win, this time over La Salle Catholic College Preparatory by a score of 14-5.
After dropping their first two games, including an 11-0 loss to Sandy on Thursday, the Eagles softball team got its first win of the season Saturday against the West Anchorage Eagles from Alaska, trouncing them by a score of 9-2.
HRV’s boys and girls golf program may have a young roster, but it’s an expanding one — at nearly 20 golfers, the team is twice the size in 2015 as it was 2014.
This past week, you may have noticed a few ski racers missing from the mountain. Three athletes from the Cooper Spur Race Team were selected to the Pacific Northwest Ski Association’s U16 Western Regional Team.

Lincoln 10, HRV 9 (OT)
The Hood River Valley girls lacrosse team has been tested early in their season, with their home debut Tuesday evening featuring a contest against the Lincoln Cardinals that was cold, wet, and went right down to the wire.
A mid-game rally bolstered by solid pitching from Hood River Valley’s freshmen wasn’t enough for the Eagles to get a win in their home-opener against Gresham Monday night, falling to the Bulldogs, 10-4. The score on paper, though, didn’t accurately reflect how well the Eagles performed for the majority of the non-league contest.
