They may have been wearing bright pink (in honor of Big Pink breast cancer awareness night) from head to toe, but the Hood River Valley High School varsity girls volleyball team was all business (well, mostly) Thursday evening against Hermiston.

After a quick Senior Night ceremony to honor Amanda McCafferty, Andrea Iobst, Christina Henage, Meighan Frazier and Kaili Duffy during their last home game of their high school careers, the Eagles were off to what proved to be a tough-fought matchup.

The 3-1 (25-21, 22-25, 25-18, 25-20) win puts HRV at 9-9 overall and 6-5 in the league with only one more game in the regular season.

This week’s action around the league bumped HRV up in the state rankings to No. 22, which, if it can hold that or better, will mean the team qualifies for the state playoffs.

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
