The Hood River Valley girls’ basketball team came out of its two most recent away games with a big high followed by a low.

On Friday night the team travelled to St. Mary’s and controlled the game throughout. A tough defense and aggressive offense kept the Blues off balance, while the Eagles where able to cut down on their turnovers to get a 67-53 win.

“We just did not let down throughout,” Coach Phil Hukari said. “We attacked the basket and held off all their charges.”

The Eagles were led by Meredith Danko’s 26 points – 15 of which came in the third quarter. Meagan Clark added 12 points to the effort while Brianne Rowley contributed 10 points.

However, everything that went right for the Eagles on Friday, went wrong on Monday against the Barlow Bruins.

The Eagles turned the ball over repeatedly in the face of a harrassing Bruin press and could not establish any offensive tempo.

Hukari credited the Eagles (4-13, 2-8 MHC) for playing strong defense, but said the lack of offensive tempo hurt them in the end.

Rowley led the Eagles with 10 points while Danko added 9 points and Clark 7 points.

‘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
