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. 


Youth served for champs

Jerry Ross isn’t exactly your typical ‘Pollyanna’ kind of guy. He doesn’t blow smoke, he doesn’t shuck and jive. He’s a straight shooter. 

So when sizing up his Lady Panther softball prospects for the season already underway, Ross laid it all out there in his usual fashion.


New look with a new coach

The Gold Beach Panthers have the numbers, a new head baseball coach in Mark Hollinger, and a revitalized field. 

Positive energy. It’s important, and the Panther batters in spades, for all the above reasons.

But will it be enough? Hollinger doesn’t want to make any predictions. He acknowledges there are “good teams out there,” but being new to the area, he doesn’t want to dwell on what they do. Instead he wants to focus on what he and his team need to do to win.


Former Bruins brought on board to help young team

Brookings-Harbor head baseball coach Keith Wallin knows what it means to wear the Bruins jersey -— both as a coach and as a player.

The veteran coach has added former Bruins players Jonathan Kennedy and Tyler Parke to the varsity coaching staff, both of whom played on the last Bruins league championship team in 2007, and both of whom know what it means to be a Bruin.


Upward trajectory for Lady Bruins team

Last season, a young Brookings-Harbor softball team was just a few RPI points from heading to a play-in round game after ending the regular season on a five-game winning streak.

This season, Lady Bruins head coach Kelly Garvin hopes her team is able to continue that upward trajectory.
