Warrior Softball: Brainerd upsets Bemidji, sort of


BEMIDJI — The QRF what?

Heading into Friday’s non-conference matchup against the Bemidji Lumberjacks, the then 12-1 Brainerd Warriors were seven positions behind Bemidji (8-5) in the QRF rankings, which is how the Section 8-3A playoffs will be seeded.

Rankings, even computer ones, apparently don’t mean much as Class 3A’s eighth-ranked Warriors downed the unranked Lumberjacks 3-1 for their seventh straight win.
