This time of year usually brings to mind thoughts of winter wonderland fun, full of snowball fights, sledding, snowboarding and skiing. This year, that is not the case due to one of the oddest winter seasons ever for northern Nevada.
Rail City Rumble
Hoping to prove itself and pull off an upset, the Reed wrestling team visited rival Spanish Springs Wednesday night in a High Desert League dual meet. The Cougars had other ideas though and cruised to a dominating 57-21 victory.
Commentary: Why is Tim Tebow so popular?
You can’t turn on sports television or sports talk radio now without hearing the name Tim Tebow, usually over and over again. I was listening to an ESPN radio show a week or two ago and the hosts said they counted how many times Tebow’s name was said on SportsCenter the night before. The answer was 104.
Fitness for Fun
It was good to be in fifth period P.E. class at Shaw Middle School Tuesday. Those students got a little extra treat on their learning menu that the rest of the school’s PE students missed out on. Players from the NBA’s Developmental League put on a FIT Clinic at the Sparks school Tuesday morning, showing the fifth-period students basketball fundamentals and stressing the importance of living a physically fit lifestyle.

Big third quarter lifts Hug boys over Reed
The Reed boys basketball team wanted to test itself against the North’s top teams to see where it stood. If the Raiders don’t right their ship quick, they’re not going to have a leg to stand on and they’ll find their 4-0 start in league play was wasted.
Sparks boys dispatch Fernley
The Fernley Vaqueros boast one of the top scorers in the Northern 3A in Cade Knutson. The bad news for Fernley was Knutson’s talented skill set was no secret to Sparks.

Sparks girls struggle in home loss to South Tahoe
Turnovers are a part of the game of basketball, and often they can tilt the game in favor of one team. On the rare occasion that a team turns the ball over more times than the amount of points it puts on the scoreboard, it is a near impossible task to overcome.
Cougars maul Lions
The Yerington Lions ran into a buzzsaw in the form of the Spanish Springs Cougars Wednesday night. Yerington did get on the scoreboard first but unfortunately for the Lyon County school, that was the lone highlight of the night as Spanish Springs rolled to a 61-15 triumph in girls prep basketball action.
Spanish Springs boys dump Galena
Returning to league play for the first time since leaving for winter break, the Spanish Springs boys basketball team could have looked like it filled the time off by eating treats and snoozing. Luckily for the Cougars, they were able to shake off the rust while host Galena remained in hibernation, grabbing a 46-26 victory Wednesday evening.
Winter break can be a time when kids grow restless and want to get out and play. Luckily for local kids, the Reed girls basketball team has teamed up with the Jam On It Basketball Academy for a second straight year to offer kids a chance during the break to get out of the house while also learning the game of basketball.
