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.

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.


Bruin golf coach impressed by team's first meet

Finishing fifth out of 10 teams is usually not the type of result that gets a head coach excited. 

But for Brookings-Harbor High School head golf coach Gary Early, his team’s performance at the first meet of the season is something to get excited about.


Promising beginning to season at Icebreaker

Both the Brookings-Harbor Bruins and Gold Beach Panthers began their track and field season at the Brookings--Harbor Icebreaker Tuesday evening,- and the season looks promising.

The Bruins and Lady Bruins teams each finished in 2nd-place overall, with several athletes winning events and posting personal record, or near- personal record marks.


Ocean, lake anglers raking in a bounty


Mark Gasich of Harbor holds one of the many trout he and the author caught Thursday while fishing Garrison Lake. Only one trout over 20 inches may be kept a day.

The ocean finally calmed down enough toward the end of last week for a few anglers out of the Port of Brookings Harbor to venture toward House Rock. Limits of big, gnarly lingcod were common.

Early Friday morning, on deadline for this column, Jim Bithell of Charthouse Sportfishing was getting his boat and gear ready for a charter.

The Southern Oregon coast’s best and brightest basketball stars shined on Sunday as they took to the court for the annual “Big Mike” South Coast All-Star Game. 

Held on the campus of SWOCC in Coos Bay, two players each from Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach High School boys and girls teams competed against other area teams in a razzle-dazzle exhibition befitting the term “all-star.”
