>Tennis tandem in doubles for third straight year
Wobbled with a couple losses in district play late in the season, Madras High's top doubles duo of seniors Emily Struck and Lindsay Carroll recovered to win the fourth seed from their special district for this week's Oregon 3A-2A-1A state tournament in Eugene .
By beating back challenges in the second round and quarterfinals of Friday and Saturday's special district event at Sunriver, Carroll and Struck struck gold, at least in the form of their third straight seed into the state tournament. They will be looking for more than the one win they registered last spring.
This year's state event starts at 8:30 a.m. Friday.
