T’was the night before Christmas, and the Gold Beach Panthers were wrestling.

Gold Beach High School’s wrestling team competed in two meets over a four-day span; participating in the prestigious Grants Pass Winter Kickoff on Friday and Saturday and then heading to Coos Bay to wrestle in Monday’s Bay City Duals.


Depleted Bruins wrestle in Grants Pass

You can count the current number of Brookings-Harbor High School wrestlers on one hand, but that doesn’t prevent them from leaving an impression wherever they compete.

At the Grants Pass Winter Kickoff last Friday and Saturday, the Bruins, with just three varsity wrestlers and one junior varsity wrestler, showed enough character and grit for outsiders to take notice.


Defense key in Bruins second win

Bruins head coach Buell Gonzales Jr. has seen his young team improving as the season progresses. BHHS defeated Point Arena in a convincing 45-25 victory in the North Valley Invitational basketball tournament on Saturday.

Entering their final pre-league tournament before the holiday break, the Brookings-Harbor High School Bruins basketball team had yet to hold an opponent to below 50 points in any of their 10 games this season.

That all changed on Saturday, as the Bruins defense slashed the 50 point barrier in half by holding the Point Arena (CA) Pirates to just 25 points in a 45-25 drubbing at the Logger Invitational basketball tournament at Eureka High School.


Panthers face tough foes at North Valley Invitational

According to Panthers head coach Jerry Ross, switching senior Garrett Dolan to point guard has paid big dividends for Gold Beach.

Gold Beach High School’s girls and boys basketball teams both split a pair of games against opponents from higher divisions in last weekend’s North Valley Invitational basketball tournament at North Valley High School in Grants Pass.

The tournament was the final pre-league tournament of the season for both teams as they head into the holiday break.


Players step up in comeback win over Pirates

The Gold Beach Panethers and Lady Panthers basketball teams swept a pair of games against the visiting Pacific Pirates on Thursday. 

Without leading scorer Jalen Robison, who is out approximately six weeks after suffering a dislocated right kneecap, the Panthers battled back from a double digit deficit to beat the Pirates, 57-51.

The Lady Panthers, who worked to shore up their defense and limit turnovers, did so in beating Pacific by 40 points at 61-21. 


The steelhead are coming ­— get your gear ready

Rich Hutcherson of Harbor caught this 14-pound chrome-bright steelhead while plunking a cop car-colored Hot Shot on the Chetco River on Tuesday.

Last week, with a palette of a coke-bottle green river water painted against a grassy canvas of milky-green hues, the Chetco, with its picture-perfect plunking water beckoned throngs of anglers to cast their Spin-N-Glos into the river.

The fishing was slow for the early component of the steelhead run, and on Sunday and Monday I didn’t see any fish caught by the plunkers at Social Security Bar. However there were a few rumors of fish being caught at the gate hole on early Sunday morning, otherwise known as the south bank pump house.

Remember that peak season for Chetco steelhead usually doesn’t occur toward the end of December through the middle of February, and there are several fresh batches of fish that come into the river through the month of March, making up multiple components of the entire run. So don’t judge the entire river run by the size of the early component.


Bruins compete in Coast Classic after Reedsport meet cancelled

A small contingent of Brookings-Harbor High School wrestlers made the trip to North Bend High School on Friday to compete in the Army Strong Coast Classic wrestling tournament against a field consisting of some of the best prep wrestlers in Oregon and northern California.

BHHS was originally scheduled to compete in a December 11 dual meet at Reedsport High School, but that meet was cancelled due to inclement weather, so the Bruins hurried to become a late addition to the meet in North Bend.

The Brookings-Harbor High School boys and girls basketball teams headed to Central Point to compete in the Crater Basketball Invitational Tournament Friday through Saturday at Crater High School.

Both the Bruins and Lady Bruins went 1-2 for the tournament as they faced tough 4A and 5A competition.


Lady Panthers’ “Big Three” leading the way

It’s been a busy week for Gold Beach High School’s girls and boys basketball teams. Both teams competed in last weekend’s Winterlake Tournament in Coquille then headed to Bandon to play an early season league game on Monday. Travelling over 250 miles to play three games in four days, the Panthers and Lady Panthers were physically and mentally tested.


Yes Virgina,fish bite in the rain

Mark Gasich of Harbor holds a 22-inch rainbow trout that weighed precisely 3-pounds 10 ounces, caught on a tube jig/PowerBait trout worm combo.

With all of these windy and rainy conditions, it would highly behoove fishermen to take advantage of some of the great trout fishing that local-area lakes have to offer. For instance, in the Nov. 22 issue of On The Water, I spoke about fishing for trout at Garrison Lake in Port Orford.

So it’s worth mentioning that an invitation to fish the lake two weeks later gave me a chance to practice what I preached.

It’s also worth mentioning that I had told my comrade that in no way, shape or form was I ever going to fish in torrential downpours ever again. Some people would call the aforementioned statement a way of getting out of having to live up to the advice given in my previous article. After all, the chance of rain was 75 percent. I had a legitimate out!

The following morning, I found myself donning my Deadliest Catch-style Grundens bibs and rain jacket, my neoprene boots, and was headed northbound on Highway 101.
