The Brookings-Harbor High School volleyball team has been winless in Far West League play since defeating Sutherlin on Oct. 21, 2010, but that streak was brought to an end Thursday night as the Lady Bruins defeated the Douglas Lady Trojans 3-1.

“Oh how do I put this? I don’t know how to put my emotions into words but it feels amazing,” senior Megan Strain said. “It’s the first league game in two years that we’ve won and it means a lot to us. It’s our motivation to keep winning and bring us closer to the top.”

Ocean salmon comes to an end

Even though fishing for salmon in ocean has been a flat-out gangbuster fishery for most of the season, high water temperatures in the 60-degree range brought the salmon fishing to a screeching halt last week, right after the Slam’n Salmon Derby ended on Sunday.

Be that as it may, anglers still have two days left (today and tomorrow; Saturday and Sunday) to catch a Chinook in the ocean. One hour after sunset on Sunday, Sept. 8, the ocean salmon season in the Klamath Management Zone will finally come to an end, which includes the area outside of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

With 27 athletes lacing up their running shoes and cross country being a sport where higher numbers could lead to greater success, Head Coach Terry Axel is excited about his team’s prospects of going to the state championships this year.

“I’m really excited about my core group this year,” he said. “The boys are pushing each other to faster times and they have a good chance at taking second at districts to make it to state.”

Brookings man wins big

Brookings resident Kevin Newell holds the $6,000 check for catching the largest fish of the 2013 Slam’n Salmon Ocean Derby — the Chinook weighed 38.1 pounds. The Pilot/Jef Hatch
More than just fish were caught at the 10th annual Slam’n Salmon Ocean Derby as long-time fisherman Bill Doty used the final ceremonies as a stage to hook 2007 derby winner Cindy Carman to be his wife.

Carman let Doty slip the engagement ring on her finger six years, to the day, after she won the derby and gave her winner’s ring to Doty as a gift for being, “the best skipper.”

The Brookings-Harbor High School volleyball team has an interesting mix of experience and inexperience driving it at the same time in the 2013 season.

The experience comes in the form of eight returning seniors on the team, while the inexperience — at least at BHHS — comes from first-year head coach Samantha Greenlee.

Bruins shut out 0-45 by Pirates
August 30, 2013 09:25 pm

The Brookings-Harbor High School football team couldn’t get the ball past the 50-yard line in the first half of the pre-season opener against the Pirates of Phoenix High School as they lost 0-45. 

While the Bruins couldn’t advance the ball offensively, the Pirates were able to score one touchdown per quarter in the first half to go up by 13 before heading into the locker room.

Lady Panthers ready to play
August 30, 2013 09:25 pm

Head Coach Tracy Wallace has been at the helm of the Gold Beach High School (GBHS) Lady Panthers Volleyball program for seven years and seems confident about the upcoming season.

 Yet Wallace knows better than anybody that it will take more than warm fuzzy feelings to win in the OSAA 2A Sunset League.

33-pounder tips the scales as Friday’s biggest fish
August 30, 2013 09:24 pm

With 498 registered competitors catching 160 fish on day one, the 2013 Slam’n Salmon Derby looks to be similar in quality and quantity to last year’s derby. 

Bandon resident Gail Van Dorn was certainly happy with the fishing as she weighed her two fish at the weigh station.

Monster slabs hitting the fillet stations
August 30, 2013 05:38 pm

Large Pacific halibut was caught last week out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, like this 60-pound barn door caught by Tom Garvin.
There are some very large halibut coming to the fillet station. Admittedly, not everyone who is fishing for halibut is catching them. But when you see someone struggling to hoist a 60-pound barndoor over the gunnel, that gives the neighboring anglers enough incentive to continue dragging 2 pounds of lead across the bottom in 240 feet of water.

Folks have been catching their halibut in the usual hangouts, such as the underwater canyon offshore from the Thomas Creek Bridge. But lately, people have been looking for deep water ranging from 140 to 250 feet off of Bird Island, Twin Rocks and House Rock, and some of these newer haunts have been kicking out a halibut every now and again.
