The HRV boys tennis team ended league play this season in pretty much the same position as last season, on top of the Columbia River Conference.
The girls didn’t win a Columbia River Conference title, but enjoyed a much more successful season this year, finishing up with a 9-3 record and 4-2 in league, culminating with a 5-3 Senior Night defeat of The Dalles Thursday.
Tuesday’s Columbia River Conference baseball matchup between The Dalles and HRV turned out to be a near carbon copy of the second game of an April 29 doubleheader between the two squads in Hood River (a 9-0 HRV win).
The race amongst the three Columbia River Conference softball teams vying for the two play-in spots left in the league got a lot tighter Tuesday night in The Dalles when HRV defeated the Riverhawks 2-1, pulling within a single game of The Dalles and Hermiston in the playoff race.
The Horizon Christian School boys and girls track teams did well with their small rosters at the Condon/Wheeler Invitational last weekend, with the boys finishing 12th of 17 teams and the girls finishing ninth of 18 teams in a meet that included primarily small schools from both sides of the Columbia Gorge and beyond.

Eagles see ‘missed opportunities’ in OT loss to Wilson
Tuesday night in Hood River, the HRV boys lax team, which has been cruising along on a string of victories against nonleague opponents this season, struck an unexpected speed bump in the team’s league debut against Wilson.
After defeating Hermiston 10-0 in the last game of a doubleheader on Saturday, the HRV Eagles softball team was looking to pull ahead in the season series with a win Tuesday evening at home and tighten up the standings in the Columbia River Conference.
The HRV baseball team suffered its worst loss of the season Tuesday night, falling 9-1 to Hermiston.
The Horizon Christian School track team is picking up the pace in anticipation of the Special District 3 championship meet May 14 and had one of its best meets of the season on Wednesday. About 80 percent of the team competed in the Portland Christian Invitational with the boys taking second overall and the girls taking third for the team’s best overall finish in an invite this season.
