Track athletes honored at annual banquet
May 30, 2014 04:16 pm

BHHS sprinter Sophie Landau hugs head coach Jim Keys during the BHHS track and field team's annual awards banquet.

The Brookings-Harbor High School track and field team had a season worth remembering. The 55-member squad sent nine athletes to the state championships, earned four top-five state medals, one state champion, two school records broken and 66 names placed on BHHS’ all-time top-20 lists in different events throughout the season. Quite a banner year for a prestigious program.

Brookings-Harbor High School senior Ronnie Manley has been throwing a javelin for approximately three-and-a-half months. The multi-sport athlete didn’t decide to try out for the track team until just before the team’s opening meet on March 18. He is sure glad he did, because now he is the 4A State Champion in the javelin.

Annual fishing pond a tradition for children
May 27, 2014 08:33 pm

Kaylee Oxborrow fishes for trout at the Kids Fishing Pond during the Azalea Festival last Saturday.

For 23 years now, the Oregon South Coast Fisherman have constructed a Kids Fishing Pond that allows children 12 and younger the opportunity to fish for rainbow trout and learn the basics of fishing.

“We have parents that first came out here when they were kids and now they are bringing their kids,” said OSCF’s Tony Hobbs, who coordinated the event. “It’s now crossing generations.”

Lady Bruins season ends at Mazama
May 23, 2014 08:58 pm

Lady Bruins third baseman Megan Strain connects on a pitch against Mazama during Thursday's 8-2 loss.

Winning a win-or-go-home play-in game on the road is not an easy task. The Brookings-Harbor High School softball team knows that all too well as they fall to the Mazama Vikings, 8-2, on Thursday in Klamath Falls, ending their season.

Bruins fall to Cascade in play-in round, dashing title hopes

The Brookings-Harbor High School baseball team did much of what they needed to do to win Friday’s play-in game against the visiting Cascade Cougars. The Bruins held Cascade to only five hits and the BHHS pitching staff allowed no earned runs. It wasn’t enough however, as the Cougars used a solid defense and capitalized on Bruin fielding miscues to defeat BHHS, 5-0, and end the Bruins’ season.

Unseasonal salmon action awes veteran fisherman
May 23, 2014 08:50 pm

Jordan Personius (left) of Grants Pass caught this 27-pound lingcod and Pacific halibut one week ago Friday May 16 while ODFW port samplers were being inundated with Chinook salmon flooding into the Port of Brookings Fillet station on Saturday May 17.

It may be too soon to tell, but I think that somebody may have under-predicted this year’s ocean salmon forecast for Sacramento River kings.

Generally speaking, May is not considered a robust month for catching Chinook in the ocean.

I may know that, and the commercial and recreational sport fishing fleet may know that, but judging by last week’s flurry of fast-and-furious fish festivities, the salmon definitely did not know that.

Panther baseball sweeps Bonanza to claim league title

Two seasons ago, the Gold Beach Panthers baseball team amassed only one win in a dreadful 1-14 season. Panther head coach Greg Brown told his team at the end of that season that there was going to be no more quitting. Win or lose, they would keep competing and keep fighting. Brown’s players bought into that concept, earning a respectable 13-9 record last season and now, just two season later, are league champions.
