Wrestling is one of the toughest individual sports in which any high school athlete can compete and it takes a special type of personality to be successful on the mat.

“Ninety percent of wrestling is mental,” Brookings-Harbor High School senior C.J. Paxton explained. “If you don’t want it, you won’t win.”

It was a brutal night for the Brookings-Harbor High School wrestling team as they traveled to Marshfield High School in Coos Bay for a five-team dual wrestling meet and won only three out of 14 matches.

“It was embarrassing,” Head Coach Dave Freeman said of the losses. “It looked like we’ve never wrestled before.” 

Bruins out shot on the road

The first two quarters of the game told the story as the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins gave up 16 and 12 points in the first and second quarters respectively while only scoring six and five before losing the game 54-35.

The Lady Bruins started cold and were in early foul trouble as they faced the undefeated Lady Bulldogs of Sutherlin, and while they tried to climb back into contention in the third and fourth quarters, it was too little, too late and they fell.

Higher flows make for better fishing

Steelhead anglers who have dreaded fishing the low water flows and gin-clear conditions on the Chetco River for the last three weeks can now look forward to fishing in higher flows that not only make their lures work at their best abilities, but also produce more strikes due to turbid water conditions making fish less wary.

Last week, welcome rain produced by several weak cold fronts raised the Chetco River to 4,600 cubic feet per second (cfs) on Thursday, creating picture-perfect river conditions for steelheaders using a multitude of fishing methods.

Nature’s plentiful bounty

Considered by many to be the bane of a fisherman’s or a boater’s existence, seaweed comes in more than 1,000 species, 75 or more of which can be found locally.

“In the summer we’d see 75 or more varieties of seaweed washed up on the beach here,” Brookings resident Dan Sawyer explained. “Because it is winter and the dormant season, we see only one – the bull kelp – but it’s all out there just waiting for the season to start.”

The Brookings-Harbor High School basketball teams took some time between the boys and girls basketball games on Friday night to honor those of their loved ones who are battling cancer or who have lost the fight to cancer by having a cancer awareness night.

Both Bruins teams were adorned in special “Pink Ribbon” jerseys that are part of a traveling jersey program that allows multiple schools to use the same jerseys on a rotating basis for cancer awareness nights.

Bruins’ grapplers claim three FWL victories
January 18, 2013 09:44 pm

Brycen Cessnun dumps his opponent on his way to a 23-second pin in Wednesday night’s wrestling action.

The Bruins needed a good start to their evening of wrestling on Wednesday and it only took them 23 seconds to get it as Brycen Cessnun pinned Tyler Coolidge of Siuslaw for six team points and an excellent start at a four-team Far West League dual meet in North Bend.

Dual meets – where teams face each other one at a time without regard to the other teams at the meet – are won by points; with six points taken for victory by pin, injury or forfeit; five points taken for a technical fall; four for a major victory (8-14 point difference); and three for a decision (less than an 8-point difference). Cessnun’s quick victory put the Bruins on path to defeat the Vikings 48-24.

Senior Cole Hannan continued his FWL unbeaten streak by pinning Travis Dahlberg in the 145-pound weight class, while fellow senior C.J. Paxton pinned Cameron Matthew in just 46 seconds to add to the Bruins’ total.


Make the most out of ocean trips

With flat-calm seas last week, salty dogs who played the daily double were rewarded with crab cocktail appetizers and fish-and-chips for the main course.

Combo trips were common from Tuesday through Thursday, where anglers would first drop off a few crab pots and then proceed to fish for rockfish and lingcod.  After catching a few bottom-grabbers, anglers would then pick up their crab pots and begin throwing the tasty crustaceans in their coolers.

Depending how the weather forecast holds up, there might be a few days this week where fishers and crabbers could enjoy another repeat performance.  At the moment, the National Weather Service is predicting that a westerly swell should be peaking to 8 feet today, but the swell is projected to subside through the rest of the week.
