Dodd’s cannon preserves Bruin win, extends win streak to 7 games

Brookings-Harbor High School right fielder Chandler Dodd wasn’t having a great game and he knew it. 

Dodd, who was 0-2 at the plate with two strikeouts, realized that he may have a chance to impact the game eventhough his bat fell silent. 

His mental toughness was rewarded when, with the tying run on third base, the winning run on first base nobody out in the seventh inning, Dodd caught a line drive off the bat of Kenneth Thrall and uncorked a strike home to gun down Siuslaw’s Brad Snow, preseving the Bruins’ 3-2 lead and sending the Bruin dugout into a frenzy.


Local lakes stocked with trout

Natasha, Tyler and Leiya Ravencroft, as well Jordan Thomas from Grants Pass made the royal score on jumbo Dungeness crab plus a few nice lings to boot while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Sunday.

If the weather’s blowing whitecaps on the ocean this week, or if the springer fishing on the Lower Rogue is a little on the slow-ish side, you might consider taking a ride on the backwards time machine and slipping through one of those cool portals that takes you back to your original fishing roots and doing a little trout fishing from the bank or from a boat.

It’s almost a guarantee that reliving your days of yore will rejuvenate you in ways you completely forgot about. In addition, if you happen to have some kids of your own, or are willing to mentor a few of your kids’ friends, it’s a given that you’ll introduce them to some very special first experiences that could actually get them hooked on the thrill of catching hatchery rainbow trout.



Bruins track team wins at Glide

Bruin runner Gabe Brazelton and the Bruin 4x100-meter relay team finished first in Glide.

Both the Brookings-Harbor High School boys and girls track and field teams earned a spot on the podium at this past weekend’s Maynard Mai/Glide Invitational track meet last Saturday.

The Bruins won the overall competition with a score of 122-points, besting second-place Lost River by more than 37-points, by taking first place in six of the 16 events. 

The Lady Bruins fared nearly as well, placing third in the overall standings just behind second-place Glide and first-place St. Mary’s.

Gold Beach freshman Kaitlin Armstrong won the 400-meter race and finished second in the 3000-meter final.

The Gold Beach track and field team was represented well at this past Saturday’s Bandon Small Schools track meet at Bandon High School.

The meet, composed of 1A, 2A and 3A teams, hosted athletes from schools such as Coquille, Riddle and Pacific in a seven-team meet.


Despite errors, Bruins battle for tough win against North Valley

BHHS pitcher Christian Edwards is part of a Bruin pitching staff that holds a 1.77 team ERA this season.

A successful team is often characterized by finding ways to win games when you are not at your best and things just aren’t going your way. That sentiment is best captured by legendary college football coach Bobby Bowden who said, “I’d rather win ugly than lose pretty.”

The Brookings-Harbor High School baseball team committed seven errors against the North Valley Vikings but “won ugly” by persevering for an 8-7 victory at North Valley High School this past Friday evening.


Basketball award winners announced

The Brookings-Harbor High School boys and girls basketball teams recently announced their award winners for the 2013-2014 season. 

Both the Bruins and Lady Bruins had winning seasons with deep playoff runs as their teams were ripe with all-league talent. Both teams were also recognized by making the Dairy Farmers Academic List, an honor bestowed upon teams having a GPA over 3.0. Additionally, all 12 Lady Bruin varsity players have an individual GPA over 3.0. 


Bruins trounce Trojans, 5-1, extended winning streak to 5 games

Lady Bruin outfielder Kaitlin Saphiloff records an out against the Douglas Trojans.

Douglas sophomore Skyler Coate’s home run to left field broke a tie ball game in the fifth inning and propelled the Trojans to a 6-4 victory over Brookings-Harbor High School, handing the Lady Bruins only their second loss of the season. 


Ocean salmon season finalized

May 10 is the big day.  That’s when ocean salmon anglers in the Oregon and California Klamath Management Zone, otherwise known as the KMZ, will be able to start fishing for Chinook salmon in the ocean.

This year, the very liberal, 121-day Chinook season will last from May 10 through September 7.  That’s plenty of time to put new line on your reels before the Azalea Festival occurs on Memorial Day weekend; and plenty of time to get your trout gear in order before trout season opens on the Chetco River May 24.
