Being a catcher and a goaltender both involve catching, stopping and blocking either a softball or a puck.
During her junior year, Sara Wennerstrand has been a starter at both critical positions for Brainerd Warrior teams.
Every team needs a vocal leader. Mikaela Chandler fulfills that requirement for the Brainerd softball team along with being one of the Warriors' top players.
The senior first baseman is one of the team's captains and takes that responsibility seriously.

For an athlete whose starts in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles are what he struggles with most, Taylor Huber sure is off to a fast start.
In meets at Sartell (April 30) and at Wayzata (May 3) Huber won the 110s and 300s twice apiece.
April 26 through April 29 was like a whirlwind for Allison Kosobud.
During that stretch, the Brainerd senior won the 800-meter run at the Hamline Elite meet, which invites only the state's top athletes in each event.
