Eagle swim girls win second straight

Jan. 26, 2011


Danielle Miller knifes through the water as she heads toward a first place finish in the 200 individual medley Saturday afternoon. Miller trimmed nearly a second off her previous best time in the event.

The Hood River Valley High School girls swim team is on a roll as it heads toward its district meet.

The Eagles took first place for the second straight Invitational meet and continued to see their times drop after a tough month of training.

"I was really impressed with the way the kids swam on Saturday," HRV coach Shea MacNab said.

The Eagles continued to shed time off their swims, with Roslyn Patrick and Kayla Schilling leading the way. Patrick dropped 25.40 seconds off her 500 free time and Schilling trimmed 6.59 seconds from her 100 breast time.

The Eagles got top finishes from their 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay teams and first place finishes individually from Danielle Miller, Taylor Tyynismaa and Alyssa Walker.

"We are heading into our last week of tough workouts and then we will start our two week taper for districts," MacNab said. "I have been really encouraged with how our swimmers have competed over the past two weeks. We have had a really hard month of training and even though they are sore and tired they are still racing at a high level."

The Eagle boys finished ninth out of ten schools and got several first place swims from Connor Webb and a fourth place finish in the 500 free by Addison Redmond.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
