Give them cleats and they will play

For so many children in this country, organized sports is simply not an option. The costs of registration, travel and equipment mean that many a child won’t have the opportunity to participate in an organized league and learn the valuable life lessons of teamwork, camaraderie and selflessness that youth sports teach. The Brookings-Harbor Shoe Exchange, a program that takes donations of used shoes to be dispersed to any in need, aims to make sure that every kid has the opportunity to play.


New prep basketball rules to effect free-throws and on-ball defense

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Players in marked lane spaces will be able to move into the lane when the ball is released by the free-throw shooter beginning with the 2014-15 high school basketball season. Previously, players could not release until the ball touched the ring or backboard or until the free throw ended.


Playoff hopes high as area teams head into final league games

Several local teams were in action on Monday and Tuesday, with playoff implications on the line.  


Ocean salmon season opens Saturday, May 10

Limits of rockfish and lingcod were common last week out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, especially for this Klamath Falls resident who remembers fishing the Brookings area long before the north and south jetties were built.

Salmon warriors may begin trolling their favorite setups today, May 10, for salmon in the ocean from Humbug Mountain to the Oregon/California border. This is an “all salmon except coho” fishery, but anglers will primarily be catching Chinook. Hatchery coho are off limits north of the Oregon/California border until that particular season opens on June 21.

Locating Chinook is going to be the most difficult task in the beginning of the season, but once the recreational salmon fleet finds the bulk of the fish, simply make tracks for the fleet and it’s bombs away. Early in the season, the salmon will usually be off the shrimp beds, about 7 to 8 miles from port. By the time June rolls around it’s game on in the local vicinity.


BHHS track and field has busy week before league final

BHHS head coach Jim Keys shares a laugh with Abbey Schreiber during a meet this season. Several BHHS track athletes are poised to make a run at a state title.

The Brookings-Harbor High School track and field team competed in two separate events over the past week, facing athletes from 24 other high schools in the 65th annual Grants Pass Rotary Invitational last Saturday, and competing in their final meet before the Far West league championships at the Last Chance meet in Coos Bay this past Tuesday.


Young wrestlers medal at meets across the West

 Tucked away in a makeshift training facility, in a serene little bedroom community, six boys work tirelessly to become wrestling champions.

The location isn’t in powerhouse wrestling states such as Indiana, Iowa, or Michigan. It’s right here in Brookings as the Brookings-Harbor/Del Norte Mat Club, a wrestling team comprised of youths ages 6 to 9, meets several times a week in preparation for one of the 20 meets a year in which they compete in around the country.


BHHS golf team continues to improve as they head into regionals

Bruin golfer Blake Butler scored a team leading round of 89 at Monday's league match at Bandon Crossings Golf Course.

The Brookings-Harbor High School golf team competed against teams from Sutherlin, Coquille and Bandon in their final league meet at Bandon Crossing Golf Course on Monday.

With their focus set on improving their overall team and individual scores the Bruins fell just short of their season goal of breaking a 400 score as a team.


Playing with an angel on his shoulder

A memorial for Josh Carter, who passed away due to injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident in April, is visible behind home plate at Gold Beach High School.

For most high school baseball players, their senior season is a carefree time to play a game they love with their closest friends and maybe, if they’re good enough, make one last run at a state championship. It is a time to reflect upon the camaraderie with teammates and enjoy the last few months of high school; with thoughts of looking forward to prom and graduation dancing in your head.

For Gold Beach’s Dustin Carter, this season has taken on an entirely different meaning. A meaning that nobody, especially a young man on the cusp of life after high school, should have to burden.


Manley breaks school record as area athletes excel at Twilight meet

BHHS' Kylie Johnson competes in the long jump at the BHHS Twilight track and field meet last Wednesday.

Brookings-Harbor High School senior Ronnie Manley broke an 11-year school record when he threw a javelin nearly 190-feet at the BHHS Twilight track and field meet last Wednesday.

Manley threw the javelin 189 feet, 3 inches, breaking Dylan Boye’s 2003 mark of 184-09 for the school record. It’s the highest mark in the 4A section and the fourth longest javelin throw in the state this season.
