Joe Haeg was relaxing at his parent's home in Lake Shore Saturday afternoon. He was playing cards when his cell phone rang. The display on his phone read "Indianapolis."
For a mother and father whose son may be protecting quarterback Andrew Luck's blind side, Rick and Janet Haeg were unbelievably calm. It's no wonder their son, Joe, who was drafted 155th by the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, has a similar demeanor—everywhere but on a football field.

When Brainerd High School head coaches begin their annual process of selecting Warrior Athletes of the Year, they consider many attributes for candidates, including: • An athlete who participates and achieves at a level of excellence in one or more sports during their senior year. • Does not have a Minnesota State High School League eligibility violation during their career. • Is a recognized team leader by coaches and peers and is one who leads by positive example in practice, play and in school life.
It was a day unsurpassed in Lowell Scearcy's 44 years as the Brainerd Warriors head baseball coach and a day that Tristan Brecht will never forget. The senior shortstop was locked in against the Alexandria Cardinals going 5-for-5. He cranked two 2-run homers, doubled, walked, drove in a school-record eight runs and scored four runs at Alexandria's Knute Nelson Field. In an 18-17 Warrior victory, the teams combined for 34 hits and 11 errors.
Bemidji 9, Warriors 5 The key: The Warriors left 14 runners on base, including the bases loaded twice Overall: Brd 1-2, Bem 2-0 Next: Brainerd at Rocori 4 p.m. Thursday (2).

The Minnesota State High School League bumped baseball up to four classes this spring, assigning Brainerd to Section 8-4A, while the Lumberjacks remained in 8-3A. But the difference in classes doesn't diminish the game's importance.

After practicing for five weeks, the Brainerd Warriors and Alexandria Cardinals finally got a chance to play a game Thursday and both teams were less than sharp—as can be expected for a season opener.
