After tough loss, Gold Beach outsts Bandon

Gold Beach’s Hailey Timeus take a lead against the Bandon Tigers.

After dealing starting the season 0-3 against larger California schools the Gold Beach Lady Panthers softball team hosted 3A Rogue River and league-rival Bandon earlier this week.


Birds of the same feather

Al Phillips, left, and Jakub Stubna formed a friendship while working out at the South Coast Fitness Center. Both broke state records at the Southern Oregon Powerlifting meet on March 12-13 in Grants Pass. Submitted photo.

There is an old saying that goes, “Birds of the same feather, flock together.”

That is as appropriate a term one can find to describe the unlikely friendship between a 72-year old retired law enforcement agent and an 18-year-old Slovakian exchange student. 

Their unique friendship began over a love of a common interest — powerlifting.


Panthers come up short in loss

The Gold Beach High School baseball team’s seventh inning comeback fell one run short in a 5-4 loss to Lost River on Saturday at Gold Beach High School.

Down 5-2 entering the final frame, the Panthers made the most of a hit batter, a walk and an error to climb to within one run with the tying run on third base and two outs, but Gold Beach couldn’t push across the run.


Lewis brothers win state titles

Wyatt, left, and Thunder Lewis, both of whom wrestled for the Brookings-Harbor Mat Club, won their age/weight classes at the SCWAY Kids State Wrestling Tournament on Saturday.

It wasn’t the Lewis brothers’ first Youth Wrestling State Championship this year, but Thunder and Wyatt’s run to state championships in their respective weight brackets of the SCWAY Kids State Wrestling Tournament on Saturday was perhaps the biggest.

“This is definitely the highlight of our year,” said Thunder and Wyatt’s father and coach, Josh Lewis. “Winning the SCWAY State is what we have had our minds set on for the last two months.”


Bruins win home-opener over Lost River

Bruins freshman pitcher Roman Worthey scattered four hits while striking out three and allowed no walks in Friday’s victory over the Lost River Raiders at BHHS.

The Brookings-Harbor Bruins baseball team entered Friday’s home-opener against Lost River still searching for their first win of the season and with a bitter taste in their mouths after Wednesday’s 6-3 loss to the defending 4A state champion Scappoose Indians, a game they were leading until the sixth inning.

The Bruins, who had lost their previous three games by just six runs, benefitted from excellent pitching, sound defense and an opportunistic offense to defeat the Raiders, 11-1, in five innings. 


Ocean conditions drive Chinook success

Jim Bithell from Charthouse Sportfishing was able to limit out his clients on lingcod and rockfish last week when the ocean laid down for several days out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

I always look forward to every year’s Preseason I Report for ocean salmon productivity. The Salmon Technical Team (STT) assembles the report, and gives their best-educated guess at what kind of salmon numbers the various regions in the Pacific Northwest should expect.

The Preseason I Report gives pre-season predictions. The final numbers of fish that are actually available to anglers won’t be tallied until the season ends, when the post-season estimates will be available.

There is no doubt that this year’s predictions of Sacramento and Klamath River Chinook that will be swimming in the ocean are significantly lower from previous years.  And since Sacramento and Klamath River Chinook make up the bulk of the salmon that are caught in the ocean in the Klamath Management Zone (KMZ), a lot of anglers are saying that this year’s season is going to be a total bust.


Redwood River Run draws 127 athletes

Twelve-year old triplets from Gold Beach, brothers Soren, left, and Lamon Gustafson finished 1st and 2nd, respectively, in the 10-14 age category, while their sister, Brende Gaston, finished 1st in the same. They pose with their father, Robert Gustafson, who finished first in the 60-69 category.

Some ran, some strolled, some stood and kept times Saturday morning at the Redwood Wild River Run, an annual race through the sempervirens along the Smith River. 

It was overcast and sporadically drizzly March 19 for nearly 200 runners and volunteers converged at the covered bridge near Stout Grove. Cars stacked up on either side of Douglas Park Drive, just a few turns off of U.S. 199. Many of them were local or semi-local, including every town in Del Norte as well as surrounding Humboldt, Jackson, Curry, and Jefferson counties. A few others came from as far away as Inyo County or Chico, not to mention some delegates from Phoenix, Arizona and Reno, Nevada. 


Lady Bruins go 1-3 at Spring Break Classic

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins softball team won their opening day game, then dropped three straight at the Medford Spring Break Classic held at U.S. Cellular Field.
