The first significant rainfall since early October should please steelhead anglers eager to wet lines on the Smith River, which had dropped to near summer flows in January with the winter drought.

Not just steelhead but salmon were also caught in the wake of this week’s rains, surprising some anglers who suspected that the chance to land Smith River chinook had ended for this season.

Warriors beat host for Bandon title

Boys beat previously undefeated Bandon 40-36 for Bandon Tournament championship

The Del Norte boys basketball team captured its first tournament championship on Saturday. The Warriors got off to a quick start and held on for a 40-36 victory over host Bandon in the championship game.

“I was just proud of my team,” said head coach Blaine Lopez. “I thought we were pretty resilient. We came out a little bit flat against St. Mary’s in the first game. We beat St. Mary’s in the second week of December and they hadn’t lost since, so to battle back after they jumped on us like that was really good.

After a couple of second- and third-place finishes this season, the Del Norte girls basketball team was finally able to bring home a championship from the Bandon Tournament on Saturday.

The Warriors were able to pull away from Jefferson (Portland) late for a 48-37 victory in the title game. Despite the double-digit margin of victory, the game was tight throughout.

“They matched up well against us size-wise,” said Warriors head coach Jeff Cook said. “We were just a little bit more athletic.”

“All the kids wrestled well,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “They performed better, and they seemed to have more technique and better technique than they did at Grants Pass.”

“This is the worst I’ve seen it in 22 years of guiding,” said fishing guide E.B. Duggan about the current drought.


Lady Warriors regroup for 49-45 win

Girls basketball avenges early season loss to St. Mary’s advances, to face Bandon in title game

For a while, Friday’s first round game against St. Mary’s at the Bandon Tournament looked like a cruel case of dejà vu for the Del Norte girls basketball team. The Warriors refused to fall into the same trap, however, and were able to escape with a 49-45 victory.

“It was a really fast-paced game,” Cook said. “They pressed us off and on. They went to man against us too, last time they only played zone against us, so that kind of tripped us up a little. It was a very exciting close game.”

Del Norte, which lost 48-48 to St. Mary’s at the Phoenix (Ore.) Invitational on Dec. 13, played the Crusaders to a 21-21 draw in the first half.
