Hood River Valley High School ski team continued its run at the Mt. Hood Ski League title over the weekend with a third straight sweep of racing action at Mt. Hood Meadows. Five boys and four girls finished in the top 10 and William Lamer and Korey Cimock won individual titles in Saturday’s giant slalom race — the first of that discipline this season.
Although the team result was consistant with the previous three races, there was a change of guard for HRV’s individual winners. Lamer beat-out Austin Keillor for the first time this season, and Cimock beat Lucy McLean for the first time — a detail coach Scott Keillor said reflects on the team’s depth. He also said the course for the race along the north side of Shooting Star, favored different individuals and their strengths than the previous three slalom events.
The team competes next Feb. 15 and 22 before preparing for state racing March 5, 6 and 7 at Mt. Hood Meadows.

‘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
