Along with the individual title, the girls team brought home a first-place trophy for the halfpipe event thanks to a second-place performance by Maddie Collins and a 15th-place result for Katie Middle.

HRVST boys had a solid showing as well, highlighted by a second-place overall finish in slopestyle and halfpipe events. Connor Goodwillie was the top finisher for the HRV boys at third-place in the halfpipe contest, eighth in slopestyle and 18th in banked slalom.

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
