HRV Nordic hosts 5K Classic
The Hood River Valley Nordic team competed on home turf over the weekend in a 5K Classic race at Teacup Nordic Center. With snow flurries and varying surface conditions as an added challenge to the area’s hilly terrain, HRV racers had a strong showing. Delia Dolan led the way for the girls with a fifth-place finish to help the team to a second-place finish out of eight.
The HRV boys squad was down its top three skiers, as they were competing at the same time at the Junior Olympic Qualifiers in Bend (see Saturday’s paper for details). Leading the way at Teacup was Mason McDowell, placing 14th out of a field of 41.
The 5K race was complicated by snow flurries much of the day, which made choosing the right wax — which is a crucial part of the sport — a game-changer for many competitors. Teacup’s hilly terrain also made a difference and was an advantage for the local skiers as they are accustomed to training on the same hills.
The team races next at a night race Feb. 1 at Mt. Hood Meadows.
HRV girls top five:
Delia Dolan, 5th
Denali Emmons, 12th
Althea Dillon, 13th
Lauren Robinson, 22nd
Victoria K.-Flanagan, 32nd
HRV boys top three:
Mason McDowell, 14th
Billy Edwards, 26th
Alex Chadney, 37th

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
