Girls basketball coasts to victory over Vikings
In the opening quarter of the BHHS girls basketball teams game on Tuesday night, they hit four 3-point shots and held the Siuslaw Vikings offence to just two points. From the first quarter on it was all a downhill cruise on the Bruins’ way to a 49-25 victory.
Leading scorers for the Lady Bruins were Iva Hart, 9; Cassidy Vaught, 9; Lakota Hatcher, 5; and Francesca Farr, 5.
Bruins fall after Vikings open with big lead
The Bruins were sluggish Tuesday night as they let the Vikings of Siuslaw jump out to a 14-point lead in the first quarter, and were never able to catch up as they lost 60-79 on the road.
The leading scorers for the boys squad were Calvin Watwood, 18; Justin Murray, 14; and Ronnie Manley, 10.
Both the boys and girls basketball programs will hold their third annual Cancer Awareness Night at the CFCU Pavilion during Friday night’s games against South Umpqua.
The teams will honor cancer survivors and remember those who have fallen to cancer between the games and have a silent auction, sell shirts and donate half the gate proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
Bruins fall in four straight dual meets
The Brookings-Harbor High School wrestling squad traveled to Crater on Saturday to take on four separate teams in a four-way dual meet.
“It was bad,” Head Coach Dave Freeman said. “We had a lot of kids that were sick or injured. We only had 10 of the 18 kids that usually wrestle.”
The final team score were BHHS: v. Phoenix, 27-39; v. Crater, 12-66; v. Grants Pass, 10-66; v. Eagle Point, 6-57.
Cole Hannan, C.J. Paxton and Johnny Feuerborn were the only Bruins with victories.
The Bruins travel to North Bend today to take on the Bulldogs.
