M'Randa Aldrich was named honorable mention for the Horizon girls.
The 2010-11 season provided a rough introduction to the Columbia River Conference for the Hood River Valley basketball teams
The HRV boys finished fourth in the league with a winless conference record and the HRV girls finished third and saw a rally come up just short against Milwaukie in a Round of 32 state play-in game.
Several players from the two teams were honored for their achievements this season.
Chris Dirks was the only HRV boys player named to the all-league team, picking up first-team honors after leading the Eagles in scoring.
The HRV girls had Jaci Bryant and Angie Titus named to the first team while Emily Ing was named to the second.
Titus was HRV's leading scorer and a constant target for double- and triple-teams throughout the season.
Despite that she still averaged double-digit scoring outputs.
Bryant kept the HRV offense flowing and also provided a high-energy presence on defense before going down with an injury late in the season.
Emily Ing made the CRC second team after proving to be a consistent 3-point threat for the Eagles.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue
Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
