WARRIORS ATHLETE OF WEEK: Mauch catches on quickly as thrower


Sydnie Mauch picked up throwing so quickly in her first year in track and field that she wound up qualifying for the state meet and placing ninth in the Class 2A shot put.

The Brainerd High School junior has continued to progress in this season’s first three meets. She has won the shot put twice and finished second once. In addition, she has placed in the top five in high jump and discus.

Mauch attributes her throwing ability to weightlifting.
