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

Athletes from the Brookings-Harbor/Del Norte Mat Club pose with medals earned from recent tournament victories in Oregon, Utah , Nevada and California. Fom left to right: Billy Lewis, Wyatt Lewis, Josh Hannan, Hayden Rosencrans and Thunder Lewis.

 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.


Oregon anglers score halibut on opening day

Dan Benson, John Bloom and Mike Nolan from Brookings scored limits of rockfish and lingcod while fishing in the ocean out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on May 1.

I may not be Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton or Stephen Hawking, but if you asked anyone who knew me back in the Saint Martha’s Catholic School days, it would be safe to say that we all got a pretty good education drilled into us by Sister Annunciation — whether we wanted one or not!

In those early years, you learned how to add, subtract, multiply and divide in short order, pretty much because calculators weren’t even invented yet. I think the first ones probably cost in the neighborhood of a hundred bucks, which was a pretty good chunk of change back in the late-’50s and early-’60s. Now they give the suckers away on a whim. Go figure!


BHHS teams split twin bills against Douglas

Lady Bruin Hannah Goergen appeared to slide in safe with the winning run in game 2 but was called out on the play.

Both the Brookings-Harbor High School baseball and softball teams split their doubleheaders against the Douglas Trojans on Friday.


Panthers sweep Lost River, now in 1st place

Gold Beach's Heidi Hancock is safe ahead of the tag against Lost River on Thursday.

Entering the season, the Gold Beach High School softball team had high hopes but little experience. Fielding a team of 10 underclassman, some with just one or two years playing softball, expectations of outsiders was that if they finished in the middle of the pack it would be a successful season, something to build upon.

The Panthers have exceeded those expectations and then some, sweeping a doubleheader against Lost River on Thursday and thus leapfrogging Bonanza for sole possession of first place in the 2A/1A-SD4 league.


Heavy workload tests Bruin arms

Bruin catcher Izak Ehlers slides in safely at second base during Tuesday's game against the Marshfield Pirates.

It’s a rarity in high school baseball to play three league games in the span of two days, but that is what the Brookings-Harbor High School baseball team did this week against the Sutherlin Bulldogs and the Marshfield Pirates.

Due to last week’s rainfall, which dropped nearly an 1 1/2 inches of rain in the span of two days, BHHS was forced to reschedule last Friday’s home twin bill against Sutherlin due to poor field conditions. Playing the doubleheader on Monday followed by a home game against the Pirates on Tuesday meant the Bruin pitching staff would be tested with a heavy workload.
