Horizon hoops: boys win, girls lose

December 10, 2005

The Horizon Christian School Hawks boys’ and girls’ basketball teams took on Trout Lake on Tuesday this week at Hood River Middle School. The boys picked up another early-season win by ousting Trout Lake by 30 points for a final score of 76-46.

The girls’ team had trouble, however, and the game ended with a 66-32 Horizon loss.

The girls played first. Despite falling to an early deficit, the Hawks hung in the game and played hard until the end.

“Our team did everything we asked of them and we played much better,” commented Coach Amanda Bellus. “We played with a lot of heart. If we keep playing like this, there are some wins in our future.”

Highlighting the girls in the game was Laura Yates, who came away with a team-high 16 points.

The boys’ game followed, and the tone changed from playing catch up to playing catch us if you can. The boys led Trout Lake by as much as 35 points.

“We felt we were a better team than what we showed last Saturday when we played Trout Lake,” Coach Ron Haynes said. “Our goal was better defense and better execution. And it was mission accomplished.”

Highlights for the boys include Nathan Olsen and Jared Nagreen controlling the boards. High scorers were Nagreen with 23 points, Bobby Cofrances with 16 points and Cameron Root with 11 points.

Next up for the Hawks:

Away games on Dec. 9 and 10 vs. Gilchrist.

Home games Dec. 16 vs. North Lake (girls 6 p.m., boys 7:30 p.m.) and Dec. 17 vs. Alumni (girls 4 p.m., boys 5:30 p.m.). Both games will be at Wy’east School.

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
