Patriots' Lane all-area player of year


Much has been said about Vanessa Lane during her Pequot Lakes High School athletic career.

State track and field champion. Powerful sprinter. Career 1,000-point scorer in basketball. Cross country runner. Volleyball player.

What hasn’t been said until now is 2014 Brainerd Dispatch All-Area Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

Lane is the fifth Patriot to win the award and probably the most unlikely.

My career at the Brainerd Dispatch began May 11, 1999 after graduating from North Dakota State University. My areas of emphasis includes local high school sports, Central Lakes College, the lakes area golf mecca and once a year I dabble in the NHRA when the Lucas Oil Nationals come to Brainerd International Raceway.
