HRVHS golfers finish state rounds

Hood River Valley High School girls golf team traveled to Corvallis this week for the 2012 OSAA 5A state golf championships at Trysting Tree Golf Club. The two-day tournament saw central Oregon powerhouses Summit and Bend finishing first and second with overall scores of 671 and 699 respectively. The Eagles, having qualified for the tournament as a team with a second place finish at last week’s district tournament, came in closer to the bottom of the leader board, at ninth place, with a two-day total of 891.

“The weather was nearly perfect; with little wind and temperatures staying around 70,” said Coach Dave Waller. “We played better on the second day, cutting 25 strokes off our first-day score. Alisha Hay had a very good second day; shooting a 46 on the back-nine, which we played first. It is the more difficult of the nines. We did well, with only a couple of minor disasters keeping us from shooting a very good round. Gabriella Whitehead shot her best completive round on Tuesday, and Korey Cimock had a solid first day to help out the team. Tori Grace hung in there and came back with a good day after having a rough opening.”

Of the five girls representing Hood River at the tournament, only Grace is a senior. Jessica Wagner is a junior and Hay, Cimock and Whitehead are all sophomores.

Representing the HRVHS boys golf team at the state tournament was sophomore Torey Schmidt, who traveled to Emerald Valley Golf Club in Creswell for two days of 5A action. Schmidt shot 18 over par on the first round and 16 over on the second to finish in a three-way tie for 40th place with a total score of 178.

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
