HRVHS baseball troubled by Jesuit squad
Hood River Valley High School varsity baseball traveled to Jesuit this week and suffered a tough 8-0 loss against the 6A Crusaders. The Eagles, now 5-5, had two hits in the game and were unable to build any offensive momentum after allowing five runs in the third inning and three more in the fifth.
The team looks to shake off the loss as it travels to Bend this weekend for a doubleheader against the Bears Saturday. Redmond travels to Hood River April 9 for the next home game (4:30 p.m.) and the last outing before league play starts April 13 at Pendleton.

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
