Everest Abblitt led Brookings-Harbor’s cross country team with a fifth-place finish in the Bruins’ home meet on Saturday.

Abblitt was timed in 20 minutes and 10 seconds for the 5,000-meter course.

Dane Steendahl was ninth (21:11), Colby Nelson was 11th (23:30), Nicholas Varitek was 16th (26:32) and Kyan Myers was 19th (32:38).

Only Hidden Valley and Brookings-Harbor had complete teams. The Mustangs, led by individual winner Grant Bohannon (17:52) won the team title.

Miranda Roberts competed in the girls race, placing eighth in 31:51. Myrtle Point’s Sarah Nicholson won in 23:05. None of the schools had complete teams.


The Bruins shut out North Bend 5-0 on Saturday after the first mar on their schedule, a 2-2 draw with Umpqua Valley Christian on Thursday.

Those were the first two goals given up all year by Brookings-Harbor, which is 5-0-1 on the season.

The Bruins were scheduled to play Glide on Wednesday and Douglas on Thursday (results were not available by press time) and finish the season with matches at Umpqua Valley Christian on Tuesday and at home against South Umpqua on Saturday.


Brookings-Harbor, short-handed because of students in quarantine, had two straight losses after starting the season 5-0-1. The Bruins lost to St. Mary’s 3-0 and Sutherlin 9-1, both on the road. They earlier had beaten Sutherlin 4-3 at home.

Brookings-Harbor has a match at Marshfield on Wednesday before finishing the season at home against South Umpqua.


The Bruins had a four-match win streak end when they lost at Cascade Christian last Thursday.

They placed South Umpqua on Tuesday and were scheduled to play both North Bend and Douglas at Douglas on Friday.

Because Curry County is going back into extreme risk and Douglas County is dropping out of that designation the matches were moved from Brookings to Winston.

The Bruins are scheduled to finish the season with matches Tuesday and Thursday at St. Mary’s and Sutherlin.
