Sports canceled again due to weather
For the second week in a row, winter weather has disrupted sports at Hood River Valley High School. A varsity wrestling match scheduled to take place in Irrigon Wednesday afternoon was canceled, as was a girls wrestling match against Washougal that was supposed to take place Wednesday evening in Hood River. While HRVHS opened after a two-hour delay Thursday, higher snowfall totals shuttered Ridgeview High School, preventing the HRV girls basketball team from traveling to an evening game with the Ravens that had been scheduled for that night. The HRV boys basketball team was also supposed to host Ridgeview Friday night, but that was canceled as well. However, there will now be a game with Columbia High School Wednesday: girls varsity is at 5:15 p.m.; boys varsity is at 7.
