Lady Bruins perfect in league

Lady Bruin Abby Farmer drills a 3-pointer during her 27-point performance against South Umpqua on Friday at BHHS.

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins basketball team entered Friday’s game against the South Umpqua Lady Lancers with a chance to complete their second-consecutive perfect season in the Far West League.

Behind a career-high 27 points from sophomore Abby Farmer, the Lady Bruins easily handled South Umpqua, 74-18, on Senior Night at Brookings-Harbor High School. 


Lady Panthers fall in playoff

Lady Panthers point guard Hailey Timeus, right, avoids a block attempt from Bandonís McKayla Myrand for two of her 11 first-half points. Gold Beach eventually lost to Bandon, 37-30.

In gut-wrenching fashion, the Gold Beach Lady Panthers were halfway through the proverbial door to the state playoffs, then the Bandon Tigers shut that door closed.

The Lady Panthers saw what was a 12-point early second-half lead evaporate over the final 15 minutes of the game, falling to the Bandon Tigers, 37-30, in the Sunset Conference League playoffs.


Herring peaks in CC, uppers/downers on the Chetco

Father and son Mike and Michael Garvey from Marlborough, Massachusetts decided to break away from striper country and travel all the way to Brookings, Oregon to fish the Chetco River with guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing last week. The two limited out on winter steelhead by side-drifting an orange Puff Ball-and-roe setup.

Every angler loves to think that he or she has it all figured out when it comes to predicting just how long the Pacific herring run will last in Crescent City Harbor. So it’s hard to believe that the herring run is already a done deal after it barely got started.

“They just went away,” said Loren Taylor of Englund Marine Supply in Crescent City on Wednesday, as a cold front was pummeling the northern California and southern Oregon coastline. “They just spawned out and left.”

But the jury’s still out on that one.

Playoff hopes dashed

Bruin Shaan Amin drives the baseline against North Bend's Ryan Wirth during Tuesday's game.

Needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins came up short against league-rival North Bend.

The Bulldogs had four players score in double figures and made 12 of 16 free throws in the first half en route to 57-42 win over the Bruins on Tuesday at Brookings-Harbor High School.


Lady Bruins beat Bulldogs, 66-46

Lady Bruins point guard Drew Farmer, left, scored a game-high 21 points against North Bend on Tuesday.

Having previously clinched a Far West League title, the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins could have mailed this one in, but knowing a win over the 15th-ranked North Bend Bulldogs would improve their playoff seeding, the BHHS took care of business.


By the numbers: How the Lady Bruins won the FWL

Drew Farmer is one of three Lady Bruins in school history to score over 1,000 points in her prep career.

The Lady Bruins are once again Far West League champions, and while they repeated that feat for the second year in a row, how they did it this season was very different than the last.

Last season, as in several previous season, the Lady Bruins won by using a full court, pressure defense that caused turnovers and produced easy points in transition. Being a smaller team than their top-ranked competitors, Brookings-Harbor had to rely on their pressure defense and athleticism on the perimeter to win games, but teams that could break the press and get into a half-court game with the Lady Bruins, were able to neutralize Brookings-Harbor’s strengths and beat them.

That’s not the case with the current version of the Lady Bruins.


Wrestlers ready for upcoming state meet
