WF track standout Levin to sign letter of intent to compete at NDSU

WEST FARGO – Running track at North Dakota State has been West Fargo senior Amanda Levin’s ambition for a long time.

This afternoon, Levin will make that dream a reality when the Packers sprinting standout officially signs her national letter of intent to compete at the school.

“It felt like a great fit for me,” Levin said. “The opportunities the scholarship is giving me made it sound like a good idea for me to go there.”

Levin won the 100-, 200- and 400-meter events at last season’s North Dakota state track and field meet, becoming the first West Fargo female athlete to win any of those races in school history.

Levin’s decision is a bright spot to her senior prep season, which started with her tearing an ACL in late August at a volleyball tournament.

The injury has kept Levin, who also plays basketball, on the sidelines. Levin intends to compete in track this spring, and said she anticipates being able to compete by the start of the outdoor season.

“Right now I feel confident with my training,” Levin said. “It is going well. The added confidence of committing is going to make me work a lot harder. It will be a big step up in competition, and we’ll see where it takes me.”

Pair of area soccer players headed to NDSU

Anna Reinholz and Jenna Zaeske, both members of the Fargo Shanley girls soccer team, are signing national letters of intent to play soccer at North Dakota State.

Reinholz is a senior midfielder/forward and Zaeske is a senior goalkeeper for the Deacons. Zaeske attends Fargo Oak Grove.

Reinholz and Zaeske helped Shanley to a 9-3-1 record last spring and a runner-up finish at the state tournament.
