League play starts Monday
The HRV boys lacrosse team ended their nonleague schedule on a high note Monday evening, teeing off on the struggling Wilsonville Wildcats (1-6) at the high school, winning 20-9.
The HRV boys and girls golf teams hosted their only match of the season this year, fitting in 18 holes between the rainclouds Monday at Indian Creek Golf Course in Hood River.
There was some talk around town, and amongst other 5A baseball teams, that this year’s HRV squad wasn’t going to be up to snuff. After all, the class that graduated in 2016 took plenty of talent with it.
The Eagles spent spring break down in Arizona for their annual appearance at the Coach Bob Invitational, and while the trip wasn’t successful in terms of wins — HRV went 1-3, including a frustrating 8-6 loss to tournament champion Boulder Creek (Arizona) that was cut short by lightning — Head Coach Erich Harjo said it was good for team chemistry.
For not having many outside practices, the HRV girls tennis team seems to be no worse for the wear as the Eagles kept rolling this week with crushing defeats of Pendleton on Wednesday and St. Helens on Thursday — both in Hood River.
HRV started out a back-to-back against league opponents Lincoln and Central Catholic this week with a tough 15-13 loss to the Cardinals Wednesday night on the road, but thankfully, the loss did not impact their league standings, as only the second game counts toward the Portland League table this season.

The 24-second shot clock has been a staple of the National Basketball Association (NBA) since 1954, when it was first used in a game in Syracuse, N.Y., to ameliorate “stall ball” tactics that were slowing down the game and making it less enjoyable for fans. The National College Athletic Association (NCAA) introduced a 45-second clock in the mid-1980s and has reduced time periodically over the years — most recently a couple years ago when the NCAA bumped it down to 30 seconds.
