For most wrestlers, the end of the season is cause for a massive sigh and a week or so of relaxing afternoons before moving on to the next item the long list of any student athlete, which may or may not include freestyle and Greco training. Hood River Valley High School senior Jose Ramirez will have two such sighs this year, as his collegiate season has been prolonged for another couple of weeks after his appearance at the state meet two weeks ago.
Ramirez, who recently finished as the 112 pound Intermountain Conference district champion, was named this week to the Oregon All-Star Wrestling Team, which will face the Californian All-Star Team in a dual at Southern Oregon University on March 11.
The Oregon All-Star Team is made up of the top senior wrestlers from across the state in each weight class. Ramirez was selected for the team by Harry Mondale of Phoenix High School in Southern Oregon.
“As a coach, I am really proud of Jose,” said HRVHS varsity wrestling coach Rich Polkinghorn. “It is a huge honor to be selected among the best high school seniors in the state. This is a great honor for Jose and for Hood River Valley Wrestling.”

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
