The weekend after Christmas means holiday tournaments for basketball teams in Oregon, and Redmond and Ridgeview high schools had some big tests this year.

The Ridgeview girls had the strongest showing record-wise, going 2-1 at the Oregon Holiday Hoopfest in Bend. Both Redmond’s boys and girls teams went 1-2 at the Vince Dulcich tournament in Astoria, while the Ridgeview boys went 0-3 in Bend.

The Ridgeview girls (5-6 overall) got the tournament off to a strong start Dec. 27 with a 42-38 victory against Class 4A Madras at Summit High. Rylee Troutman gave Ridgeview a 35-33 lead with two late free throws. After Madras tied the game, Alaina Clark put the Ravens up for good with a putback with 1:40 to play.

Rylee Troutman led Ridgeview with 19 points in the game.

After Forest Grove, ranked No. 6 in Class 6A, defeated Ridgeview 57-41 Dec. 28 at Summit, the Ravens closed out the tournament with a 48-42 victory against 6A Roseburg Dec. 29 at Mountain View.

Ridgeview gets its final tests before league play starts against two 5A powers, hosting No. 1 Wilsonville at 6:30 p.m. Thursday before playing at No. 9 La Salle Prep in Milwaukie at 6 p.m. Saturday.

The Redmond girls (5-5) fell in their opener 56-46 against Class 4A Astoria, the tournament host, on Dec. 27.

The Panthers rebounded Dec. 28 to knock off Class 6A Gresham Centennial 48-44, before falling 51-42 the next day against Class 4A Gladstone.

Redmond plays at 5A West Albany, ranked No. 18, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, before hosting former Intermountain Conference rival Bend, which is now in 6A, at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

The Redmond boys (2-8) fell in their first two games in Astoria — 52-42 against Class 3A Rainier on Dec. 27 and 44-32 Dec. 28 against Ridgefield, a Washington Class 2A team. But the Panthers left town on a high note, knocking off 4A Tillamook 42-27 Dec. 29.

Redmond plays at West Albany Wednesday and at Bend Friday, with both games scheduled for 7 p.m.

The young Ridgeview boys (1-11) kept their first tournament game against Timberline (Idaho) close into the second quarter, but ended up losing 64-32 Dec. 27.

Payton Davis led the Ravens with 10 points, while Nolan Conroyd scored six.

Ridgeview followed that game with a 105-68 Dec. 28 loss to Madras, before losing 82-63 in a Dec. 29 consolation game against Pendleton. That game was a preview of the new-look IMC. The Ravens and Buckaroos will play twice more in February.

Ridgeview wraps up non-league play Saturday at No. 9 La Salle in Milwaukie.
