ODFW funding task force meets Feb. 29

SALEM — The legislative task force on Funding for Fish, Wildlife and Related Outdoor Recreation and Education will hold its second meeting at the State Capitol from 1-5 p.m. on Monday, Feb 29 in Room HR 50.


Playoff hopes dashed

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

Grapplers from both Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach High Schools competed in their final meets ahead of the state championship meet on Feb. 26-27.


Back-to-back champs!

In a vastly improved Far West League, it was the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins who, once again, came out on top.

Knowing that a win secured their second-straight league title, the Lady Bruins wasted no time in jumping out to a 20-2 first quarter lead and cruised to a 58-26 victory over the Siuslaw Vikings on Friday at Siuslaw High School.


Dollars for Doernbecher

If you’ve happened to attend a Brookings-Harbor basketball game this season, you’ve undoubtedly heard it.

“That’s 15 more dollars for Doernbecher!”

Any time a Bruin or Lady Bruin connects on a 3-point shot, a quintet of local businesses donates $3 each to the respected Portland children’s hospital.

To date, the Bruins and Lady Bruins have amassed a total of 84 three-point shots during Brookings-Harbor home games — raising approximately $950 dollars to be donated to the hospital on behalf of the high school’s leadership group.

The idea is the brainchild of current BHHS seniors and co-chairs of the leadership council — Drew Farmer and Vanessa Hernandez. The duo comprise the starting backcourt for the defending Far West League champion Lady Bruins, and both can hit the 3-point shot.


Fourth quarter run leads to Bruins win

Tied 22-22, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins went on a 10-0 run to open the fourth quarter to secure a 41-32 win over the Siuslaw Vikings on Friday at Siuslaw High School.

Brandon Curtis led the way for Brookings-Harbor, scoring a game-high 18 points, including seven fourth quarter free-throws, as the Bruins snapped a four-game losing streak.
