A three-game (23-25, 21-25, 18-25) loss to the now 2-8 South Umpqua Lancers put the Bruins volleyball squad solidly in last place with a 1-8 record and only three matches remaining in the season.
For the eight seniors on the team the last three games are just as important as the first three were.

In what may be one of the toughest defenses the Brookings-Harbor boys soccer team will face all season, the Bruins were able to get the ball in the net the one time it was needed and claim a 1-0 victory over the Red Devils of Coquille.
“Well, it’s a win,” Head Coach Gabe Anaya said. “It was a little rough to play with the wind. We had a lot of chances to score and we just weren’t calm enough to get them in.”
