HRV track and field team peaking at the right time

Team drops 21 PRs at Oregon City, heads to CRC championship meet this Wednesday

There’s a lot of new faces on the track for HRV this year, but those uncertainties have ebbed as the Eagles have grown over the season and are peaking just in time for the district meet this week, where the Columbia River Conference title will be decided.

Doubleheader defeat of Pendleton gives HRV baseball the lead in a tight CRC title race

Another successful doubleheader was had by the HRV baseball team this weekend, who took down the Pendleton Buckaroos 12-9 in the first game and 4-2 in the second on the road Saturday thanks to standout performances by the Eagles’ go-to guys, as well as athletes whose names don’t often appear at the top of the stat sheets.

Baseball shows ‘uncharacteristic’ play in 4-2 road loss to Hermiston

After sweeping Hermiston in their debut league doubleheader, the HRV baseball team hoped to take the four-game series over the Bulldogs with a road rematch on Tuesday. However, an early lead by Hermiston, coupled with some uninspired play by the visiting team, dashed those hopes — at least for now — as the Dawgs (7-9, 1-2 Columbia River Conference) defeated the Eagles (10-6, 2-1) 4-2.
