HRV hoops continues conference slump

Hood River Valley High School varsity boys and girls basketball teams traveled to The Dalles-Wahtonka Friday evening for their fourth league matchup of the season and the first between the rival Eagle-Indians.

The HRV girls played first in what turned out to be the lowest-scoring game of the season so far for the team. The 36-21 loss puts the girls at 0-4 in the Columbia River Conference with five more league games remaining in the season. TDW girls bettered their league record to 2-2, third to Hermiston and Pendleton, respectively.

The HRV boys, also 0-4 in league play, didn’t have much better luck on the road. The Eagles were 15 for 39 from the field in the 57-43 loss and were led by Ryan Wheat with 24 points and Luke Kopecky and Parker Kennedy with seven each.

Next in league action, the boys host Hermiston Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. while the girls go on the road to play the Bulldogs.
