Short-handed Hawks set solid times at districts

HOOD RIVER – If The Dalles swim team was going to give itself a chance to do some damage and have several athletes make the big jump to the state meet, all systems needed to be firing on all cylinders. Unfortunately, head coach Shea MacNab had to do some last-minute re-shuffling to his roster due to three varsity swimmers knocked out of action with illness issues and, because of that, two relays were scratched, and the group missed out on between four-to-six finals swims at last weekend’s Columbia River Conference District Swim Meet at the Hood River Aquatic Center in Hood River. Nonetheless, the Riverhawks posted 10 top-5 finishes, Natalie Varland had a second and a third, Will Evans chalked up fourth, and three relays placed third or better.
