HRV boys win IMC preview over Bend

GRESHAM — The HRV boys basketball team got its first taste of Intermountain Conference competition last Saturday when it faced Bend in the final round of the Barlow Trail Invitational.

While it wasn’t their finest effort of the season, the Eagles were still able to squeak out a 40-37 win to raise their season record to 3-6.

“We scored when we executed our offense, but it really shouldn’t have been that close,” said coach Phil Vesel, who was without junior post Heath Goin.

Senior point guard Andy Holmson led the Eagles with 10 points. Also of note, Ryan Pratt had nine, Tyler Monzie six, Pete Dills five points. Five players had two apiece.

HRV was coming off a disappointing 44-42 loss to Skyview of Vancouver, Wash., and the win over Bend snapped a three-game losing streak. The Eagles are off until Jan. 7 when they host The Dalles.

Senior point guard Andy Holmson earned 39 hustle points to win his second straight Hustle Player of the Week award. In a close race, senior Ryan Pratt had 37 points, while Todd Shypertt and Jarrod Fogle each had 35 points.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
