VOLLEYBALL: Brainerd sweeps to stay on top of CLC


The Brainerd Warriors improved upon their best start in eight years with a sweep of the St. Cloud Apollo Eagles in a Central Lakes Conference match Thursday night at Brainerd High School.

Brainerd improved to 3-0 in the CLC and to 9-2 overall. That betters the start of the 2003 team, which opened 8-3.

Sydnie Mauch recorded 17 kills, Sarah Miller accumulated 13 digs, Hannah Kangas had 24 set assists and Courtney Ryan smacked seven kills to lead the Warriors.
