Should Sheridan lose the team will play the loser of the Harrisburg/ Pine Eagle game at 10:30 a.m. Fri- day. Fans wishing to locate a place to stay during the state tournament may pick up a list of hotels and mot- els available at the high school. The last time Sheridan won a state championship was in 1982. The last time the Spartans made it to state was in 1986 when they lost the cham- pionship game to North Clackamas. Both times Samples was coach. Samples said Monday that in prac- tice he intends for his team "to work on things they're doing well." When questioned about Yoncalla, Samples described the team as being "not very tall (their tallest player is 6-2), but good jumpers and quick, strong scorers." Yoncalla head coach Terry Duncan looks for a low scoring game, mat- ching two good defenses. The Ea- gles, who play in the Big Fir League, are 16-6 and took second place in Re- gion C. Duncan has coached at Yon- calla for seven seasons. "I heard Sheridan has a kid who's 6-7 (Casey Claus). We never faced anyone that big before. I hear there are a lot of role players on the Sheri- dan team and that (Steve) Samples is a pretty good scorer," Duncan said. Starters for the Eagles are: at cen- ter, Steve Lancaster, a 6-2 junior; forwards Jim Martini, a 6-2 junior, and Tony Waste, a 6-0 junior; and guards Bid VanLoon, a 5-10 sophom- ore, and Corin Botwinik, a 5-7 seni- or. Duncan said he regularly plays three other men. They are 6-0, senior forward Braque Hildreth, 6-2 junior center Brant Miller, and Brian St. Clair, a 5-11 senior at guard. Duncan said his team's strong points are that "the kids play pretty good half court defense." Offensive- ly, he describes the Eagles as "kind of a basic team."

River conditions are bad be- cause the water level raised 2 feet Sunday night. However, Three Rivers, Drift Creek and other small streams are fishable. On the coast, jetty and rock fishing are pretty good for sea bass, sea perch and kelp. Also an- glers may have luck with clams and sand shrimp Harry's steelhead contest ends on April 1.

We just call it common sense. When you shop at home, you're helping to strengthen our local economy and keep our standards high, because a part of every shopping dollar goes right back into local business, civic improvements, schools, churches and police and fire protection. And the more successful our town's business community is, the more jobs there'll be availah: e. As money turns over and over, property values increase. In short everybody wins when we shop locally!
