In Grant Gmeinder's four seasons as Brainerd's head coach, the Warriors compiled a stellar 53-13-2 overall record and won four Central Lakes Conference titles. In addition, last season the Warriors attained their first Section 8-2A quarterfinal playoff victory since 2009 when third-seeded Brainerd beat No. 6 Buffalo 3-1. Brainerd went on to the semifinals, where its season ended with a 5-1 loss to No. 2 St. Michael-Albertville. The playoff victory lifted a load off of the program's shoulders.
Pierz High School graduate Robert Bell is scheduled to be among the pros golfing in the first Dondelinger Brainerd Lakes Area Tour Showcase Wednesday, Aug. 22, at Cragun's Legacy Courses.
For the last two years, the Brainerd Warriors have advanced to the finals of the Section 8-2A team tournament but have run into perennial champion St. Cloud Tech, which defeated the Warriors for the title 7-0 in 2016 and 6-1 in 2017. Both teams have graduated many talented seniors but the Warriors are hoping this is the year they vault past Tech and qualify for the state tournament for the first time since winning three straight section titles from 2009-11. Brainerd returns five girls who played in the section championship dual meet against Tech. Warriors head coach Lisa Salo said three things her players can always control are effort, positive attitude and sportsmanship.
In a league with little patience for losing, and in a conference stacked with individual stars and super teams, Sacramento Kings head coach Dave Joerger is striving to build a winner. The former Staples-Motley Cardinal will begin his third season as the Kings' head man in 2018-19 following a 27-55 record last season. That finish placed Sacramento 12th in the Western Conference and fourth in the Pacific Division.
BREEZY POINT—1:39.20.

Aulie smoked the record set by Steve Jeffs of the United Kingdom. Jeffs completed his attempt in 1:50.6 at Tiverton Golf Course Jan. 4 in Tiverton, U.K.

"H." That's all you have to say and anyone who ever played or coached or was associated with or was familiar with Pierz baseball knew to whom you were referring. "H" was John Hellie and Hellie was Pierz baseball. The Pioneers' longtime head coach, and caretaker of all levels of the Pierz baseball program, died Friday, June 29, at his home in Pierz. He was 72.

On April 13, 1973, I played third base for Brainerd High School in Lowell Scearcy’s first game as the Warriors’ head baseball coach. We shut out St. Cloud Apollo 4-0 that day, the first of Scearcy’s 727 victories as Brainerd’s coach, as Alan Wallace struck out 12 and fired a one-hitter. Apollo went on to finish third in the then one-class state tournament.
