Graham, Stubna, relay team earn state berth

The Bruins 4x400-meter relay team of (left to right) Bailey Stamm, Shaine Graham, Juan Cortez and Cody Enos finished second to qualify for next weekend's state meet.

Five Brookings-Harbor High School track and field athletes will be heading to the state championship meet after qualifying at last weekend’s Far West League District Championships at BHHS.

Bruins hurdler Shaine Graham claimed his spot as one of the greatest Bruins hurdlers in school history. Graham won his third consecutive district title in the 300-meter hurdles with a personal best 40.26, earning the senior his fourth straight trip to the state final meet. Graham also qualified in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 15.34.

Lady Pathers win league title

Gold Beach's Kayleanna Ridens rounds first during Friday's 19-0 win over Myrtle Point.

In their first pressure-packed situation of the season, the Gold Beach Lady Panthers responded resoundingly.

Gold Beach entered Friday’s regular season finale against Myrtle Point with just a one-and-a-half game lead against second-place Reedsport. A loss meant that if Reedsport won on Friday against Bandon and on Saturday against Waldport, the two teams would end up tied for the 2A/1A-Special District 5 title and Gold Beach would have blown a golden opportunity to win their first league title in six years.

The Lady Panthers weren’t going to let that happen.


District meet continues Saturday

Several Brookings-Harbor High School track and field athletes earned medals on the first day of competition at the Far West League District Championships at BHHS on Friday.

Distance runners Chris Burton and Jimmie Allen and thrower Kia Collins all made the medal stand in their respective events on Friday.


Lady Bruins lone senior honored, leads BHHS to twin bill sweep

Three-sport star Courtney Kay pitched all 14 innings in a sweep over South Umpqua on Friday.

As far as three-sport athletes go — they don’t get much better than Brookings-Harbor High School’s Courtney Kay.

The senior, who was named Lady Bruins athlete of the year at a school assembly earlier this week, pitched two complete games in a doubleheader sweep over visiting South Umpqua on Friday.


The salmon are coming to Curry County

Dennis Haack and two friends, all from Klamath Falls tripped the rockfish fantastic on Thursday to nail 3 limits of black rockfish while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Last week, diminishing winds and calm seas allowed 52-degree water to inch its way closer to the Oregon and California coastline. The combination of a salmon’s ideal comfort zone combined with chlorophyll-rich water brought Chinook salmon within the realm of commercial-fishing vessels.

There was also one verified report of a 30-inch Chinook caught accidentally by an angler fishing for bottomfish as well.

With 5- to 8-knot winds predicted this weekend, my prediction is that anglers will be catching more salmon purposefully on Sunday.


Bruins finish 8th at district meet

The Brookings-Harbor High School golf team finished off their season with an eighth-place showing at the 4A-Special District 3 meet earlier this week.

The two-day district meet, which was held on Monday at Centenniel Golf Course in Medford and on Tuesday at Eagle Point Golf Course in Eagle Point, featured nine teams including Far West League rivals Marshfield and North Bend as well as Mazama, Henley and Klamath Union.

Brookings-Harbor Track and Field District Meet Preview: State finals or bust

BHHS freshman Bailey Stamm (foreground) takes the baton from teammate Juan Cortez in the 4x400-meter relay race at the BHHS Rotary Invitational in April. Both the Bruins 4x100 and 4x400-meter relay teams will be in contention for a district title and a spot in the state finals.

It only happens once every six years. This year, its the Bruins turn.

The rotation for the Far West League District meet means that each team in the league gets to host the district championship event every six years. This season’s meet will be held at Brookings-Harbor High School beginning 12:30 p.m. on Friday and at noon on Saturday — giving the Bruins the advantage of running in front of their home crowd.

Several Bruins are in top form as they enter the district final recording some of their fastest times and tallying season-best marks.


Gold Beach Track and Field District Meet Preview: State finals or bust

Gold Beach senior Lincoln Newdall is favored to win the district title in the shot put and is one of two favorites to win the discus event. Newdall’s season-best shot put throw of 45 feet, 11 inches is fifth best in the state this season in the 2A section.

Lincoln Newdall and Kaitlin Armstrong.

That was the total of Gold Beach’s track and field team last season.

A small number, but both athletes excelled last season. Newdall qualified for the state meet in the shot put and Armstrong  was district champion in the 3,000-meters and finished on the medal stand in two events (1,500 and 3,000-meters) at last year’s state meet.

Their success has helped the Gold Beach program blossom into a district and state contender, with several athletes vying to win titles at the Sunset League District meet beginning Friday at Toledo High School.
