Tech 5, Warriors 2 The key: The Tigers won three singles and two doubles matches Conference: Brd 10-2, SC 10-0 Overall: Brd 16-3, SC 16-3 Next: Brainerd in North Subsection 8-2A Team Tournament at Alexandria Tuesday. Despite winning 11-straight dual meets, and 16 of 19 overall, during the regular season if the Brainerd Warriors hope to go deep in the postseason they're going to have to get past the St. Cloud Tech Tigers.
Although just a sophomore, Lexi Roby will earn her fifth varsity letter this spring in one of her three sports, which may make it difficult for her to choose which to focus on at the next level. Roby will have to choose between soccer, basketball and softball. Brainerd Warriors softball coach Shane Jordan thinks Roby has a promising future as a college shortstop—if she so chooses.
Warriors 13, Alexandria 10 The key: Bryce Flanagan hit two home runs and drove in six runs Conference: Brd 8-3, A 5-7 Overall: Brd 9-6, A 6-9 Next: Brainerd vs. St. Cloud Tech at Faber Field, St. Cloud, 7 p.m. Tuesday. Prior to the first pitch, "Cold as Ice" by Foreigner, "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice and "Freeze Frame" by J. Geils Band poured through the public address system at wind-swept Adamson Field.
With the addition of Jordyn Sullivan to the pitching rotation, the Brainerd Warriors could be a factor in the upcoming Section 8-4A playoffs. The freshman right-hander flung a complete game Thursday on her way to a 4-1 victory over the Sartell Sabres in a Central Lakes Conference game at Adamson Field. She allowed one earned run and six hits, walked one and struck out three. She retired six of the last seven Sabres in order.
Sophie Balster plans to leave her name among the top throwers in the history of the Brainerd Warrior girls track and field program. The senior already ranks No. 2 in discus with a fling of 129 feet, 2 inches, in 2015. In shot put, she ranks fourth with a heave of 39-5.25, also in 2015. With warmer weather hopefully ahead, those school records may be in danger of being shattered.

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.
Tech 15, Warriors 0 The key: Trevor Koenig struck out 11 and the Tigers collected 16 hits Conference: Brd 3-3, SC 5-0 Overall: Brd 3-5, SC 7-1 Next: Brainerd at Sauk Rapids 4 p.m. Tuesday (2) .
