Terrific at Tugman

BHHS’ Chris Burton (fourth from left) runs with the lead pack while Gold Beach’s Frank Baumgartner (green jersey on right) trails not far behind at the beginning of the boys 5,000-meter race at the North Bend Tugman Invitational cross country meet on Wednesday in North Bend. Burton finished in second place with a blistering time of 16:31.77.

Cross country teams from Brookings-Harbor High School and Gold Beach High School began their seasons against teams from Siuslaw, Marshfield, Bandon, and host North Bend at the Tugman Invitational meet at Tugman State Park on Wednesday. 

Several of Curry County’s finest prep distance runners finished in the top-10 to highlight a successful meet for both teams.


Gold Beach wins in rout; Bruins fall to Illinois Valley

The Gold Beach Panthers routed the Vernonia Loggers, 50-0 at Vernonia High School while the Brookings-Harbor High School Bruins, who led at halftime, fell 35-20 to the Illinois Valley Cougars in Friday's high school football action.

Panthers fall in straight sets to Del Norte

Gold Beach’s Heidi Hancock rises for a kill attempt during Wednesday's game at Del Norte High School.

New Gold Beach head volleyball Stephanie Sharbono is looking towards the positive.

Fully understanding that her Gold Beach Panther team, having gone winless last season, was facing a section champion in the Del Norte Warriors, Sharbono is attempting to set a positive and competitive tone for the Panthers this season.


Ocean conditions perfect for bottom grabbers

Two anglers get ready to net a Chinook caught while trolling Rogue Bait Rigs in the Chetco bay on Wednesday.

If you’ve never fished for rockfish and lingcod at hotspots such as Twin Rocks, House Rock and Mack Arch, or drug the bottom for Pacific halibut in water from 180 to 300 feet off of the Thomas Creek Bridge, now is the time to do it.

The National Weather Service is predicting extremely moderate seas, perhaps the best ocean conditions of the season, to blanket the area from Gold Beach south to the Oregon/California border this weekend and into the beginning of next week.


Riding donkeys for dollars

Players from Brookings-Harbor first responders and Pelican Bay State Prison staff compete in Sunday's Chetco Shrine Club Donkey Baseball Game at Brookings-Harbor High School.

This past Sunday at Brookings-Harbor High School a sight was seen that would make a casual passerby contract a case of whiplash due to an extreme double-take: donkeys playing baseball.

When I first heard that our local community hosted such an event I had to see it for myself. Sure, I’ve seen boxing kangaroos and paintings of dogs playing poker but to my knowledge, I did not know of any four-legged animal that could lay down a sac bunt or turn a double play. I had to see it to believe it.


Pigskin Pick’em Week 1 Winner: Diane Moffit

Diane Moffit

Results are in for the first week of the Pigskin Pick’em football contest and the winner is — drumroll please — Diane Moffit of Brookings, who led all entries with a 15-5 record. Diane, a former teacher at Brookings-Harbor High School, was the only entry to correctly predict 15 of the 20 picks, winning a $100 bill in the process.


Lady Bruins show improvement in 3-0 loss

Lady Bruins outside hitter Courtney Kay spikes the ball for a kill during BHHS’ 3-0 loss to the Del Norte Warriors on Monday evening at Del Norte High School.

Heading into Monday’s season opening game against the Del Norte Warriors, Brookings-Harbor High School head volleyball coach Samantha Greenlee decided to treat the game unlike the others.

“I approached this as a preseason game and not a win-loss game,” she admitted. “I didn’t tell the girls that. I wanted to see what our strongest rotation is, where the kinks are, and be ready to approach it again next Monday and see how we adjust.”


Outmanned Curry Youth falls to Redwood

Curry Youth's Andrew Burger runs over a tackler during Sunday's 46-0 loss to the Redwood Knights.

The Curry Youth Football program kicked off its season with both the A-division and AA-division teams in action Sunday against Eureka Redwood at Brookings-Harbor High School. 

Outmanned by the Redwood teams by as many as 10 players, both Curry teams fought uphill battles against their deeper opponents.

Bruins pillaged by Pirates

Bruins linebacker Christian Hooper, who had an interception and scored the Bruins lone touchdown during the game, tackles Phoenix running back Zach Atteberry during BHHS' 45-6 loss to the Pirates on Friday.

The Brookings-Harbor High School football team, looking to shed the memory of seasons past, overcame opening game miscues to find themselves down by just two scores at halftime. Any thoughts the Bruins had of pulling off the upset were quickly dashed however as the visiting Phoenix Pirates outscored BHHS, 28-0 in the second half en route to a 45-6 victory over the Bruins.
