EAGLE POINT, Ore. — When the Eagle Point High School Varsity Softball team arrived in Hermiston, Oregon for their first playoff game of the season, they found an outpouring of care from their erstwhile opposition.

"They had bought three white carnations and attached the names for the three beautiful souls that we lost," said Heather Guillory, mother of one of the girls on the team.

Even as far away as Hermiston—a nine hour drive for the Eagle Point team—students had heard of Eagle Point High School's loss: Luciana Tellez, Gisselle Montaño and Esmeralda Nava, all killed in a tragic car crash last Saturday after another driver went the wrong way on Interstate-5.

Hermiston High had also put up a sign that said "Welcome Eagle Point, We Care," handmade cards, and bought the Eagle Point team Subway sandwiches for lunch, according to Guillory.

"As you can imagine, there was not a dry eye on the team. It means a lot that someone so far away went through such an effort to support our girls in this time of loss," said Guillory. "What a beautiful gesture, thank you Hermiston on behalf of the whole Eagle Point community!"

Memorial services for all three girls will be held next week on Tuesday and Wednesday.
