MAYVILLE, N.D. — Former Brainerd Warriors Kylee Heurung scored her 1,000 career point Wednesday, Feb. 2, in Mayville State University’s 85-38 victory over Viterbo.

Heurung returned to the court after undergoing ACL surgery a year and a half ago.

Heurung finished with 13 points and two rebounds in the win.

The senior forward has played 155 minutes this season. She’s scored 50 points on 42% shooting. She’s added 31 rebounds, six assists and six steals.

Her 20 minutes against Viterbo were a season-high as her playing time has increased over the past six games.


The Comets are 15-5 overall. They hosted Bellevue University Friday and will host Dakota State University Saturday, Feb. 5.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
