Gold Beach Wrestling Preview: Panthers don’t rebuild, they reload

Si tceles Fry, left, and Taylor Bright practice their wrestling moves during a pre-season practice last week. Panther head coach Beau Hanson believes both wrestlers will turn heads this season.

Gold Beach High School head wrestling coach Beau Hansen is optimistic about his Panther wrestlers this season. 

No surprise there. 

For those out of the loop, Gold Beach has long been regarded a wrestling powerhouse in the OSAA 2A division, cranking out generations of state-championship performers. In fact, Gold Beach is in the midst of an unprecedented streak — the Panthers have won at least one state championshp for each of the past 14 seasons.


Gear up for winter steelhead

Tristen Holmes from Grants Pass, Oregon caught this chrome-bright king while fishing on the Chetco River last week.

Fresh schools of chrome-bright Chinook pushing 30 pounds were the name of the game on the Chetco River last week, and anglers were able to catch them by pulling plugs and deploying bobbers-and-bait rigs.

In particular, a group of anglers hit the Port of Brookings Harbor cleaning station in the beginning of the week and at least four fish, each as shiny as a freshly-minted quarter were filleted.

As the week progressed, the water levels started dropping, which meant that the only successful anglers were using bobbers and sand shrimp cocktails, which is a combination of roe tipped with a small piece of sand shrimp.


Shooting your age: Local man on a five-year streak

Golfer Don Jackson has “shot his age” for five consecutive years. Submitted photo.

In the game of golf there are so many variables that can affect the score a golfer shoots; the weather, the altitude, the clubs and your swing — to name a few.

All of those variables lined up well for Brookings resident Don Jackson — not just recently, but over the past five years.

Seasoned, athletic Bruins aim for title

Bruins senior Jordan King makes a layup during Tuesday's practice at BHHS.

It’s not often you lose your leading scorer and best defensive player and come back a better team the next season, but that’s what appears to be happening for the Brookings-Harbor Bruins basketball team entering the 2015-16 season.

The Bruins, who had just two seniors on last year’s squad, boast an athletic, deep team that aims to get back to the top of the Far West League this season.

With five returning seniors, all who had substantial playing time last season, the Bruins believe a trip to the state playoffs in within reach this season.


Lady Bruins aim to repeat as FWL champs

The Lady Bruins work on their trap defense while head coach Chris Schofield looks on.

Across the state, it is well known that if you play the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins basketball team, you might want to trade in your basketball shoes for track shoes.

Under head coach Chris Schofield, the Lady Bruins up-tempo, full-court press has garnered BHHS a reputation amongst their 4A opponents as a team that will apply pressure and cause turnovers, but if you can beat that press, you have a shot at beating them.

This season, Schofield and the Lady Bruins, last season’s Far West League champions, are working to become better in both half-court defense and offense, in hopes to make it back to the state championships.


Three BHHS players make all-state soccer list

Lady Bruins junior Siena Worthey, right, made 1st team all-state for the second consecutive year.

The Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) released the all-state lists for the 2015 prep soccer season on Tuesday and three Brookings-Harbor High School soccer players made the team.

The highest accolade went to Lady Bruins midfielder/forward Siena Worthey who was named 1st team all-state for the second straight season.


Youngsters ‘hoop it up’ at annual Elks contest

The Brookings Elks Lodge hosted their annual Elks National Hoop Shoot contest on Saturday for local youth ages 8-13 on Saturday at the Brookings-Harbor High School gymnasium.

Several youngsters, divided into age/gender classes, competed in two rounds of free throw shooting to determine who will move on to the next round on Jan. 23 in Roseburg.

Rain sparks salmon to bite

Jim Hall from Eugene, Oregon fished the Chetco River on Thursday with Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing when Jim caught these two nice kings while back-trolling wrapped MagLip and Hawgnose Flatfish.

Salmon fishermen love to see rain, but they don’t like to see too much of it at one time. The ideal condition that anglers hope for is enough rain to raise a river to fishable levels, but not a total blowout that floods the area and sends fish packing upriver all at one time.

All I have to say is it’s about time!

Last week Mother Nature brought picture-perfect rain conditions to rivers ranging from California’s Smith north through Oregon’s Winchuck, Chetco, Elk and Sixes Rivers.  These are accordion-style pulsations of rain that anglers dream about — a little bit here and a little bit there.
