Nisswa's Colton Sturm has been invited as an alternate to the X Games following his performance in last week's Hillcross competition at Crested Butte, Colo. Randy Sturm, Colton's father and a member of his crew, said Colton received a call from an X Games official earlier this week inviting him to the Games. Randy said the official told Colton that "you didn't make the top six but you showed speed and ability and you can absolutely ride. You had some bad luck but that's part of racing and we want to invite you to the X Games." Sturm competed in four heat races Jan. 10 and four more Jan.
It should be no shock that Braden Kramer is experiencing success midway through his first season as a varsity wrestler for the Brainerd Warriors. The eighth-grader comes from a long family bloodline of talented wrestlers who were state champions and state placewinners. In addition, his brother-in-law is former University of Minnesota and Olympic wrestler Jake Deitchler, who's director of wrestling and athletic programs at Takedown Gym on Highway 371 North of Brainerd.
Although he stands out in swimming, having qualified for two Class 2A state swim meets, David Supinski considers himself a runner in a swimmer's body. Separate surgeries on both hips in the spring of 2013 forced him to miss the 2013 track and field season and affected his performance in his last two cross country running seasons. A year after surgery, Supinski says he's completely recovered from the surgeries. He demonstrated that by anchoring the Brainerd Warriors' 4x400 relay to 10th place in the 2014 2A state track meet, missing all-state distinction by one place.
