Two-sport Totino-Grace star signs to play Gopher baseball

Totino-Grace senior and two-sport standout Reggie Meyer signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at Minnesota

Meyer, a 6-foot-4 righthanded pitcher, is the younger brother of Gophers junior pitcher Ben Meyer. Their father, Bob, played for Minnesota in John Anderson’s first season as head coach.

As a junior, Meyer received second-team Star Tribune All-Metro and All-North Suburban Conference honors. He held a 5-2 record and 1.11 ERA as Totino-Grace tied for the conference championship.

“Reggie is a great match for Gopher baseball because of his athleticism, character and commitment to academics,” Minnesota pitching coach Todd Oakes said in a release. “He is a well-rounded young man from a solid family and a pitcher with a lot of upside potential. He has the foundation to be a three-pitch strike thrower with a quiet, but competitive, attitude that will add to the quality and depth of the Gopher pitching staff.”

Also a star on the basketball court, Meyer led the Eagles to the North Suburban title as a senior. He averaged 25 points and nine rebounds per game on his way to being named conference MVP.

Fleet feet

Julia Hayes, an eighth-grader running on Irondale’s girls’ track and field team, made school history at the Knights Under Lights meet last week. Hayes set two freshman-and-under school records, winning the 100- and 300-meter hurdle races. She posted times of 16.13 seconds in the 100 and 48.12 seconds in the 300 hurdles.

A horse at the plate

Weather limited Mounds View’s baseball team to just two games last week. But senior Sam Hentges, better known for his pitching prowess, made the most of his at-bats as well. He went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, one run, one walk and one stolen base in a loss against Cretin-Derham Hall. The next day in a loss at Hastings, he was 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a triple, a double, three runs and two RBI.

Blaine’s Tufte turns down national team

Promising Blaine hockey player Riley Tufte turned down an invitation to play for the National Team Development Program Under-17 team in Ann Arbor, Mich. As a sophomore last season, Tufte, a 6-4, 190-pound forward, scored 17 goals and added 20 assists for a Bengals team ranked No. 1 for a portion of the season.
