Katrina Reeves of Granite Bay High School was named to the U.S. Lacrosse High School All-America team.

Reeves, who will be a senior in the fall, was one of 14 goalies selected. She allowed 5.65 goals per game while Granite Bay averaged 14.65. Reeves averaged 16.8 saves per game with a 66-percent save percentage. She also caused 53 turnovers.

Grizzlies coach Stu Brokowsky nominated Reeves, a two-time team MVP and defensive MVP in her freshman year.

“She earned it in terms of talent,” Brokowsky said. “I … explained she’s as good as any of them (in the Bay Area). She works hard, plays on a traveling team, takes lessons. Like anything else, you get out what you put in, and she puts in a lot of extra time.”

A three-time pick on the All-Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference first team, Reeves carries a 4.0 grade-point average and has given a verbal commitment to San Diego State University.

Brokowsky described Reeves as a great competitor who’s fearless.

“Most goalies have a crease, and most never leave the crease,” he said. “She will go out there for loose balls, intercept passes, so she again takes the position to a level that has obviously attracted her to San Diego State, that they want her, because she will do the extra things.”

Marinoble’s fighter puts title on line

Max Griffin will make the first defense of his West Coast Fighting welterweight championship when he meets Kenny Ento tonight as part of a triple main event at the Yuba Sutter Fairgrounds, 1234 C Street in Yuba City.

Griffin (4-0), who fights out of Marinoble’s in Roseville, won the 170-pound title with a first-round knockout of veteran Jaime Jara in January at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville.

Marinoble’s fighter Justin Baseman (9-2) also will be on the card, which has 17 scheduled bouts.
