COLLEGEVILLE - After being confined to a gym since March 18, and enduring nine postponements/schedule changes due to a snowy, cold spring, the Brainerd Warriors finally received an opportunity to play ball at 10 a.m. Friday - outdoors.
While researching upcoming fitness events in the lakes area - if spring or summer ever arrives - I thought something might be amiss when I opened a bookmark for the Baxter Inline Marathon and the website came up written in Chinese.
Brainerd Warriors head football coach Ron Stolski will receive the 2013 John Gagliardi Minnesota Football Legacy Award from the Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame (NFFMN) at the annual “Honoring Legends-Inspiring Leaders” awards event April 28.
Following the Thursday, April 11, dumping of 5 inches of snow in the Brainerd lakes area, I was considering writing another Sports Santa column.
That was before I remembered it's spring and I only write that column at Christmas time.
By this time the last three years, the Brainerd Warriors had already played at least one game.
This spring, more than 22 inches of March snowfall, combined with unseasonable cold, postponed the Warriors' April 4 opener at Bemidji.
