Hood River Valley High School senior Connor Dunn picked up Mt. Hood Conference All-League second team honors for his role this fall on the HRVHS water polo team’s first varsity season.
The first and second teams are each comprised of seven players voted by the conference coaches as the best in the league. Water polo teams in the Mt. Hood Conference include five 6A schools (Reynolds, Sam Barlow, David Douglas, Gresham, and Centennial) and three 5A schools (Parkrose, Sandy, and Hood River). Additionally, junior Stan Ocheskey, sophomores Myles Cameron, Arthur Finstad, and Russel Grim and freshman Adam Cameron were named All-League honorable mention players.
Coach Dave Cameron commented, “We’re incredibly proud of Connor. He put in a consistently strong performance throughout the season, and it’s great that the coaches of the other teams took notice. We’re also really excited about Hood River’s prospects for next year, given that the majority of the All-League Team players are graduating seniors and almost all of our varsity players will be returning next year.”

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
