Lady Bruins are statebound

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins show off their freshly-minted #statebound T-shirts after defeating the Henley Hornets, 56-41, in a first-round playoff match-up at BHHS on Friday. With the win, the Lady Bruins earn a spot in the OSAA 4A State Championships.

“It ain’t about how hard you can hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.” — Rocky Balboa (Rocky Balboa, 2006).

Last season, the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins lost a heartbreaking, down-to-the-wire first-round playoff match at home to the Mazama Vikings, leaving some unfinished business as they entered the 2015-2016 season.

On Friday, the Lady Bruins proved Rocky right.


First Umpqua River springer caught

Brent Lanz from Eugene was fishing for winter steelhead on the Umpqua River with guide Martin Thurber of Willakenzie Guide Service last week when a Coppermine-colored Mag Lip 3.5 was inhaled by this springer which was estimated to be between 42 and 44 pounds. It is officially the first Umpqua springer of the year.

Local-area rivers like the Chetco and the lower Rogue still continued to kick out fresh incoming steelhead, and the Chetco saw its share of spawned-out down-backs heading back to sea. But with the large swell that has been hammering the area, the steelhead action has temporarily slowed down.

As soon as ocean conditions start flattening out, anglers can once again look forward to catching mint-bright incoming steelies throughout the rest of March — and maybe a few Rogue River springers to boot!


Sunset Conference All-League Basketball: Lady Panthers earn several all-league honors

Gold Beach Lady Panthers head coach Chris Clark was selected Co-Coach of the Year in the Sunset Conference and Hailey Timeus garnered her second First Team selection as the Sunset Conference All-League basketball teams were announced this week.

Clark, who guided a young Lady Panthers team to a first-place tie with favorites Bandon and Myrtle Point this season, was named co-coach of the year along with Myrtle Point’s Chris McKnight.

Timeus, a dynamic senior point guard, was named to the league’s first team for the second straight year after leading the Lady Panthers in scoring this season.

A quartet of Lady Panthers sophomores were named to all-league teams. Paris Newdall garnered a second-team honor while Olivia Okey, Kayleanna Ridens and Jordan Rucker were all named to the Honorable Mention list.

OSAA 4A Playoffs — Round 1 Preview: Lady Bruins face familiar foe

The Lady Bruins enter the playoffs as the No. 5 seed and face the Henley Hornets, a team they defeated, 51-43 on Jan. 9, in the first round of the OSAA 4A State Playoffs on Friday. Pilot file photo.

On January 9 at the annual Sky-West Crossover Tournament, the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins defeated the Henley Hornets, 51-43, in a close, grinding game.

Little did they know at that time, but they had played a preview of what would eventually be their most important game of the season.

The 5th-seeded Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins will host the No. 12 Hornets in a first-round OSAA 4A playoff game at 7 p.m. on Friday.

The winner advances to the state championships the following week in Hillsboro. 

The loser goes home.


Farmer, Schofield nab top honors

The league champion Lady Bruins garnered the highest honors, as senior point guard Drew Farmer won Player of the Year and head coach Chris Schofield was named Coach of the Year — both for the second year in a row.


Impressive Panthers streak ends at state finals

Panther Taylor Bright, top, wrestled his way to 4th place in the 2A/1A 120-pound class.

Gold Beach’s unprecedented 14 year run of fielding at least one state wrestling champion ended on Saturday after a trio of Panthers narrowly missed a title shot.

Entering Saturday, the final day of competition at the OSAA State Wrestling Championships, three Panthers — Taylor Bright, Si tceles Fry and Jade Piper — had all advanced to the semi-final round, just two wins away from a state title.


First Rogue River springer caught

Bob Rodgers and Richard McDowell, both from Healdsburg, California fished on the Chetco River with guide Todd Puett of Todd Puett Guide Service last week and had a very successful day, going 8 for 9 side-drifting Puff Balls-and-roe setups.

I remember when the Mag Lip 4.5 was originally called the M2-SP FlatFish. The Mag Lip is a popular lure used to catch just about everything that swims in a river.

Anyway back in the M2-SP days, you had to know the difference between an M2 and an M2-SP because they were both two completely different animals. It is easy to see how a person could get the two lures confused.

Anyway, the M2-SP worked so effectively and dove deeper than any other FlatFish lure, that it was catching Mackinaw at Odell Lake like crazy, and salmon in every river known to man.


Gold Beach grapplers in title hunt at state finals

After the first day of competition at the OSAA State Wrestling Championships at Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum in Portland, three Gold Beach High School grapplers are in position to capture a state title.
