> Madras High owns the distinction of having both its boys and girls basketball head coaches taking part in an all-star basketball series for just graduated seniors this weekend.
Evan Brown, the boys basketball coach at Madras, is coaching in a 3A boys basketball all-star series on the same evenings girls coach Mike Osborne is coaching the West in the girls all-star series that Madras graduates Tosha Wilson and Jar‚ Retherford are listed as players in.
Brown is coaching the West in the boys series supported by the Oregon Athletic Coaches Association. Despite Madras's location just east of the Cascades, most teams in the Tri-Valley League it is part of are west of the Cascades so the group Brown is working with is the West.
Practices for the all-star squad will be held at Madras at least once, and maybe more, during the week, said Brown. If practice will be to the public was still begin determined, said Brown.
