One of the concerns the Brookings-Harbor High School softball team’s coaching staff had entering into the 2014 season was scoring more runs than they did last year. If their first eight games of the season are any indication, it’s not the coaching staff that needs to worry about the offense, it’s their Far West league opponents that should.
BHHS catcher Izak Ehlers and the Bruins are 2-0-1 in their last three games.
Brookings-Harbor High School baseball pitcher Wyatt Aldrich allowed just one hit in his six innings of work and the Bruin offense capitalized on five Sutherlin errors as BHHS opened Far West league play with a 9-1 rout of the Bulldogs at Sutherlin High School Tuesday afternoon.
Guides Rye Phillips, Dave Castellanos and Andy Martin decided to pool their resources and scout out the lower Rogue River for springers on Tuesday. Their results was this 20-plus-pound springer caught and held by Rye Phillips.

Runners scale the wall obstacle during Saturday's Rogue River Rampage mud run.
Nearly 40 runners from across Oregon and beyond braved harsh rainfall to compete at the second Rogue River Rampage mud run along the bank of the Rogue River in Gold Beach this past Saturday.
“The weather worked out perfectly: We had more mud than last time,” said Gold Beach Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sandy Vieira. “There was a lot of excitement from all the people that came out. The consensus was the participants had a blast and it was a lot of fun.”

In what could be considered their first true test of the season, the Brookings-Harbor High School Lady Bruins softball team won three of four games at the Central Oregon Tournament in Bend this past week, stretching their record to 6-1 as they head into league play.
The Lady Bruins, who played four games in the span of two days, competed in the 20-team tournament against some top flight teams. BHHS head coach Steve Bonde felt the experience was a good barometer for where his team is at heading in the Far West league season.
