Board Selects Future Sites for State Tournaments RENTON, Wash.;The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association Executive Board held their April meeting in Spokane on Thursday and Friday the 26th and 27th. During this meeting the board selected future state tournament sites for baseball, tennis, volleyball and basketball. The city of Yakima was awarded the 2002-2004 WIAA/Dairy Farmers of Washington 2A-state basketball tournament, the B, 1A and 2A state baseball tournaments and the B/1A and 2A state tennis tournaments. Yakima was also named the host of the 2001, 2002 and 2003 1A and 2A state volleyball tournaments. The B, 1A and 2A baseball tournaments will be played on a rotating basis at Parker Field and Yakima County Stadium during the' WIAA spring championship weekend. Yakima County Stadium will be reserved for all three classification championship games played on Saturday The 2001, 2002 and 2003 WIAA/Dairy Farmers of Washington 1A and 2A volleyball tournaments will be played simultaneously on a five court setup in the Yakima Sun Dome. For the past three years Yakima has hosted the 2A- volleyball tournament and now welcomes the 1A tournament that was formerly held on the campus of Central Washington University in Ellensburg. The 1A/B and 2A tennis tournaments will continue to call the Yakima Tennis Club home for their state championships. The Yakima Tennis Club has hosted the 1A/B and 2A tournament for the past three years and, in previous years, hosted the 3A and 4A tournaments. In addition to the 13 outdoor courts, Yakima Tennis Club has eight indoor courts that are available for use should there be inclement weather. Representatives from Spokane, Yakima and the Tri-Cities presented pro- posals to the Executive Board to host the 2002, 2003 and 2004 class 2A WIAA slate basketball tournament in their respective arenas. The Executive Board found all three proposals intriguing, but in the end felt Yakima is a better fit for the 2A-state basketball tournament because of the cities central location to the majority of 2A schools and the fact that Yakima has successfully hosted the tournament for the last three years. Cont' d from page 1 Nurses usually become experts in that specialty, but they don't learn a lot about other kinds of nursing. Nurses at rural hospitals don't----can't--do that. A rural hospital demands versatility. In one 12-hour shift, a nurse may help deliver a baby, work in the Intensive Care Unit and assist in Surgery, Beeson said. Her patients can be new babies, senior citizens recovering from surgery or anybody in between. "You get to take care of everybody. You see it all." There is "more of a family atmosphere, I think, in a rural hospital." If the staff does not know the patients when they are admitted, they know them before they leave, and stay friends with them after they get better, Beeson said. She said Okanogan Douglas Hospital is a good place to work; "there's a lot of dedication in this place." She discovered that when she experienced a serious illness, and her co-workers provided support and encouragement. "It's a very fun place. You just genuinely care about each other." By Cheryl Schweizer, staff writer A good school carnival needs a lot of things to be really good. There has to be lots of carnival food--hot dogs and cotton candy and popcorn and soda pop, and of course a cake walk. It is important to have lots of carnival games, like a ring toss and a fishing pond and a hoop shoot. And areally successful carnival needs lots of prizes, (A truly great carni- val will have a bunch of chairs over in the corner where parents can sit down, out of the way.) The school carnival scheduled for Saturday, May 5 at the Brewster High School gym has most of the compo- nents needed to be really good, maybe even great. Parents and kids can judge for themselves from 4 to 8 p.m. The organizers, members of the Beat Backers, say there will be lots of carnival food (not only hot dogs, but chili dogs and nachos) and lots of games. They include longtime favorites like the fish- ing pond and the ring toss, the hoop shoot and dart throw (and a cake walk), as well as a putting C)uad Ci~ Herald May 3. 21301 Page 7 Cool sunglasses, cool hats, really this Saturday.
