Lady Bruins 6th in state after loss to Banks

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins, who had not won a state tournament game until this season, pose with their sixth-place trophy after a 51-28 loss to the Banks Braves in the consolation final on Saturday. Drew Farmer, No. 33, bottom row, was named to the all-tournament 2nd team.

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins basketball team had made several previous trips to the OSAA 4A State Championship tournament, having gone in 2011, 2012 and 2014, but they had never won a game and placed in the tournament — until this season.

The Lady Bruins fell to 2nd-ranked Banks, 51-28, on Saturday in the tournament’s 4th/6th place game. Though they lost the Lady Bruins finished the season as the sixth place team in the state — higher than any team in modern school history.


Lady Bruins extend tourney trip with win over Madras

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins had to be thinking, “Not this again.”

With one-and-a-half quarters left to go in Friday’s consolation-bracket game against the Madras White Buffalos, it appeared the Lady Bruins were headed to another 0-2 early ousting, similar to their tourney trips in 2011, 2013 and 2014 — another bitter ending to an otherwise successful season.

This season, however, the Lady Bruins will play in the 4th-place consolation final on Saturday.


Lots of trout action to hit Garrison Lake next week

Trout even larger than this 3-pound 1-ouncer that the author is holding are going to be stocked into Garrison Lake within the next few weeks.

Whenever the southern Oregon and northern California coast gets hammered by relentless storms and buckets of rain day after day, a person starts to wonder if it will ever end. But as I sit here writing this column, I am looking at a trout schedule for Garrison Lake and remembering the fun I had on this particular waterbody last year, and as soon as these storms start abating, I’m loading up my trout gear and heading for Garrison — so should you!

Just last week, March 7 - 11, ODFW planted 200 trophy rainbow trout, and the trout liberations are going to keep on coming this month and through April.

“And there’s another 200 trophies going in the week of March 21,” said Todd Confer, district fisheries biologist on Thursday.  “Another 200 trophies are going in the week of April 4, and another 200 trophies are going in on the week of 4-18.”


Lady Bruins title hopes dashed with loss to La Grande

The Lady Bruins’ quest for an ever-elusive state title ended on Thursday afternoon at the hands of the La Grande Tigers.

The Tigers got a game-high 15 points from Kylin Coliman and a double-double from Greater Oregon League Player of the Year, Avery Albrecht, to defeat the Lady Bruins, 48-39, in the quarterfinals of the OSAA 4A State Championships.


25th Anniversary: Voice of the Bruins

KURY radio broadcaster Kevin Bane has reached a milestone of 25 years as the Bruins play-by-play announcer. Submitted photo.

In late February, KURY Radio’s Kevin Bane, “The Voice of the Bruins,” celebrated 25 years of broadcasting Brookings-Harbor High School sporting events.

How did he know it’s been 25 years?

While recently cleaning out a drawer he came across an old South Umpqua High School baseball program with his name on it — one of the first games he broadcast for KURY Radio, and it was from the 1991 season.


Lady Bruins face tough Tigers team

Head coach Chris Schofield and the Lady Bruins will face a talented team in the La Grande Tigers on Thursday.

Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins head coach Chris Schofield knows there are no easy roads to a championship.

When the 5th-seeded Lady Bruins take on No. 4 La Grande at the OSAA 4A State Championships, the Lady Bruins will begin play in a field that features the top-8 teams in the state.


Local athletes invited to all-star game

Eight area prep basketball players have been named to the rosters of the 2016 “Big Mike” South Coast All-Star game presented by the Bay Area Sportsman’s Association.

Four players, two boys and two girls, from both Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach High School have been invited to attend the annual all-star event, which pits talent from the Southern Oregon coast against each other, regardless of division.


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!
