With a core group of dedicated athletes anything is possible, including a trip to the OSAA state championships. Or at least, that is what head track coach Jim Keys is hoping for.

“It’s going to be tough,” Keys said. “We’ll be able to place with the rest of the teams in league and we’ll be able to compete for some places at state, but it will be tough.”

Anglers catch the first Rogue Springers

A few anglers aching to catch their first springer of the year on the lower Rogue were rewarded with handful of spring Chinook last week. On Thursday, a steep rise in water flow from the Illinois River, one of the Rogue’s tributaries, helped bring more water into the Rogue, causing more turbidity as well. Consequently, the once-spooky springers, which had been seeing gin-clear conditions all week, finally let down their guard and hit a variety of lures including spinnerbait/anchovy rigs and Spin-N-Glo/anchovy rigs.

The smart fishermen were using the tide to their advantage. In the ocean, fish seem to go on-the-bite on the incoming tide, as it peaks at high tide, and then about an hour after the tide turns. At some point during that three-hour tidal window, the fish are going to snap.

Late walks lead to loss

One inning was all it took for the Brookings-Harbor High School baseball team to turn a potential win into a loss. Despite a seventh-inning effort which found five runners on base through the inning, the Bruins dropped Monday’s home game to the Panthers of McKinleyville, 7-9.

“We played great baseball,” Head Coach Keith Wallin said. “Everybody on the team said after the game — even after one bad inning — every single kid said they were really excited about how they played, and that they know they are close to getting over the hump.”

Rain makes for tough play

In an effort to avoid the rain, the Brookings-Harbor High School softball team moved the game from 3 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Their strategy failed to produce the desired results as the Lady Bruins’ game against Marshfield High School ended in a wet, soggy, 1-11 loss.

“I think the weather played a slight part in the game,” senior Megan Strain said. “We were all cold and you can’t feel your hands or anything out there. But, I think we definitely could have played a lot better.”

“Everything worked today,” Head Coach Steve Bonde said. “Everybody was moving and really working together.”

The Lady Bruins softball team needed to work together to help starting pitcher Hannah Goergen keep her perfect game intact and capture the win, 11-0 over the Mustangs of Hidden Valley. 

Sharp hooks put more fish in the boat

Curt Wood and Skip Owens from Havre, Montana, hold four of the eight lingcod they caught on Monday out of the Port of Brookings Harbor while fishing with Jim Bithell, owner of Charthouse Sportfishing. The Pilot/Larry Ellis
Ding ding! Another lingcod just bit the dust. Every time one of Jim Bithell’s clients drops a horse herring to the bottom, it rings the dinner bell and the toothmeisters come a-runnin’. That’s how good the lingcod fishing has been. 

Bithell, owner of Charthouse Sport Fishing, has been limiting his clients out almost every day on lingcod that have been averaging between 8 and 12 pounds. He’s also been limiting out his clients on rockfish as well. 

Bottom of 7th wins game

Corwin Farquhar takes a swing in Monday night’s 3-2 victory over the Del Norte Warriors. Farquhar hit the walk-off double to score Chandler Dodd and win the game. The Pilot/Jef Hatch
Tied 2-2 with two outs and a man on second the pressure was on for Bruins’ shortstop Corwin Farquhar.

Unphased by the possibilities — strikeout and go into extra innings; ground out and go into extra innings; single and not score a run; or score a run and win the game — Farquhar bombed a shot that dropped well over the outfielder’s head and allowed teammate Chandler Dodd to score from second.

“I was just hoping to get it over the pitcher’s head,” Farquhar said. “Try to get that win, you know.”
