State individual tournament Xcel Energy Center, St.
Losing two dual meets in the Class 1A state tournament at the Xcel Energy in St. Paul should make the Pierz Pioneers a better team next season. In Thursday's state quarterfinals, the 11th-ranked and unseeded Pioneers were defeated 32-23 by second-seeded and second-ranked Frazee. Pierz's season ended in the consolation semifinals as eighth-ranked West Central/Ashby/Evansville defeated the Pioneers 38-28. "We didn't think we matched up well with Frazee and we ended up wrestling well," Pierz coach Mark Jensen said.

Millie Klefsaas of the Brainerd Warriors didn't have the best all-around day of her gymnastics career but she performed well in two events in the Class 2A state individual meet Saturday night at the University of Minnesota Sports Pavilion. Klefsaas, who attends Staples-Motley High School, scored a 9.5375 on vault, which had she qualified individually for that event would have placed her 13th. "I over-rotated on my first (vault)," she said. "The second one I knew I could pull it out. I practiced it all week and I did it. I stuck it.
Every five and 10 years, what Sports Illustrated proclaimed the "greatest sports moment of the 20th century," becomes a story again. On Saturday, Feb. 21, in Lake Placid, N.Y., the 1980 USA men's Olympic hockey team will celebrate the 35th anniversary of its "Miracle on Ice" victory over the vaunted Soviet National Team during the Cold War and its subsequent march to the gold medal. All living Miracle on Ice players, including Dr. Bill Baker of Brainerd, are tentatively scheduled to be in Lake Placid for the first time since the 1980 Winter Games.
With one regular-season game remaining, the Brainerd Warriors are building a head of steam for a postseason run. The Warriors chalked up their fourth straight win Thursday night with a workmanlike 67-58 victory over the Sauk Rapids Storm in the final game of the Central Lakes Conference season. Brainerd finishes conference play 10-6 and in a 3-way tie for third place with Alexandria and St. Cloud Tech. Tech bumped off Alexandria 72-66 Thursday.
Intense. Determined. Strong. That's Millie Klefsaas. Hampered by injuries for much of her gymnastics season, the sophomore from Staples-Motley overcame physical setbacks to qualify for Saturday's Class 2A state meet on balance beam and the all-around competition.
Alexandria 55, Warriors 46 The key: The Cardinals shot 67 percent from the field in the second half Conference: Brd 8-5, Alx 12-1 Overall: Brd 10-10, Alx 17-5 Next: Moorhead at Brainerd 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Even though they played much better than in a 24-point loss Feb. 10 at Alexandria, the Brainerd Warriors didn't have quite enough horsepower to overtake the Cardinals Monday night at Brainerd High School. The patient Cardinals sank a sizzling 10 of 15 shots from the field in the second half of a 55-46 victory over the Warriors.
Warriors 59, Willmar 49 The key: Willmar shot 29 percent from the field, 55 percent from the foul line.
