Seann Reed has put in long hours of training and football practice to make an impact with the gridiron squad at the University of Nevada, Reno, this fall.

“It’s exciting,” Reed said. “I just want to make a name for myself. I’ve just got to go out and make plays.”

Reed, a 2006 Del Norte High School graduate and Warrior football standout as a linebacker and running back, is a junior with the Wolf Pack.

An NCAA Division 1-A program based in the Western Athletic Conference, many publications predict the team will be a contender for the WAC crown this fall. The Sporting News predicts Nevada will finish second behind Boise State.

While the Wolf Pack is known as an offensive juggernaut, the defense has had problems keeping points from being put up on the scoreboard in previous seasons. Any defensive help is certainly needed, which means Reed could see his share of playing time.

That changed last weekend.

Ford, who has won the North State Challenge Racing Series for two straight years, was disqualified near the end of a race in Roseburg, Ore., on Sat­urday.

In the local portion of the race card at the NASCAR Toyota Bi-Mart-150, Ford started out well the day before by posting the fastest qualifying time, he said.

An excellent season was rewarded, with five White Star accolades for the Del Norte High softball team.

This included junior catcher Lauryn Lesina being named Most Valuable Player of the Big 4 Conference.

Lesina was a major contributor for a team that won its third straight conference title with a 11-1 Big 4 mark and came within one game of making a North Coast Section championship contest for the second consecutive year. The Warriors won the NCS Redwood Empire Class 2A title last season.

Lesina led the team with an .477 batting average and also led the squad with four home runs, 24 RBIs and 26 runs.

“She was dominant,” Warrior head coach Jackie Heuberger said.

It was a perfect start for the Del Norte Grizzlies American Legion baseball team this past weekend.

The Grizzlies opened up their season with two doubleheader home wins on Saturday and Sunday to begin the year at 4-0.

“It feels really good to start this way,” head coach Eric Enos said, saying it was the first time in four years of coaching the team that they had gone 4-0 to start the year. “We still have work to do, although it’s a good start.”

He added that he was fairly pleased with his team’s pitching, which included two complete game efforts on Saturday.

Enos said the key to earning these early season wins was the fact that his squad was aggressive and capitalized on their opponents’ mistakes despite being inconsistent in the hits department.
