Best times a theme for HRV swim team

Eagle swimmers posted solid times over the weekend at the annual The Dalles-Wahtonka Invitational Swim meet. The HRV girls dominated the field of 10 teams for a first-place finish; on the boys side the Eagles finished third behind Pendleton in second and LaSalle in first.

Coach Keith Ebbert said the meet was a little unusual in that many of his top swimmers posted best times. “In general it was a very strong showing by the team’s top-tier swimmers,” he said. “And that’s not to take any recognition away from our other swimmers; it was just surprising to see the number of experienced swimmers dropping time.”

Personal bests included Diego Ybarra with an exciting 50 free finish and a best time, Rebekah Galvez hitting her best time in the 100 butterfly, Carlos Galvez beating his 100 butterfly best by at least 4 seconds, Kayla Shilling posting a best time in the 100 free event and Dhani Freeland with best times in the 200 free and 100 free on her leg of the relay.

Other highlights are as follows:

Team scores: HRV girls, first place out of 10 teams; HRV boys:, third place out of 12 teams

"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
