Warrior Athlete of the Week Jack Thorkelson
Jack Thorkelson can finally relax. The Brainerd Warrior junior soccer player was hoping to smash the single-season school record for goals, a mark that he accomplished with a hat trick in an 8-0 win over Fergus Falls Oct. 4. In his pursuit of the goals record, he has also eclipsed the program’s mark for total points in a season. Entering the 2017 season the single-season school record for goals was 17 scored by Tyler Hansen in 2006. The total points in a season record (23) was set by Jason Roberts in 2000. Thorkelson enters the Section 8-2A playoff match against Moorhead Thursday, Oct. 11, with 18 goals and 29 total points. Warriors coach Tom Grausam said Thorkelson was stressing a bit as he approached the goal record.
