Warrior Athlete of the Week March 8, 2018

Warrior Athlete of the Week March 8, 2018 --- A foot injury before last season necessitated that Cody Vleck move from forward to goalie for the Brainerd Warriors adapted floor hockey team. Vleck responded by backstopping the Warriors to an unbeaten season and the state championship and landed him a berth on the all-tournament team. “It was rough,” Vleck said of adapting to being a goalie, “but I had a lot of support from family, coaches and teammates so I was able to get the time I needed in net to practice. When it came to games, it just felt natural by then because I had the whole summer (to practice in goal). “It was wonderful,” Vleck said of winning the state title. “It was one of my best experiences to be part of that team. And I feel like I did (my) part.”
