Another lakes area coach has decided he's had enough. Veteran baseball coach Pat Held was scheduled to serve as an assistant coach of the Staples-Motley Cardinals this spring. A few days into his 50th season, according to his post on Facebook, he was asked to resign because a few parents indicated their sons would not play for the Cardinals if Held was the junior varsity coach. When that message was conveyed to Held, he resigned.
Grace McGuire didn't finish as high as she had hoped, but that couldn't put a damper on the career she had as an Alpine skier for the Brainerd Warriors. The senior, who skied to a 70th-place finish in Wednesday's state meet at Giants Ridge in Biwabik, qualified for state three times as an individual and once with her team which won the state championship in 2014-15.
Grace McGuire aims for her highest finish in state Alpine competition Wednesday, Feb. 14, when she skis in the state meet at Giants Ridge in Biwabik. The Pequot Lakes senior, who competes for the Brainerd Warriors, will make her fourth state appearance. Her highest finish was 35th in 2015, when Brainerd won the state team title. McGuire's other state showings were 46th in 2017 and 76th in 2014. Last week she finished sixth in Section 5 to earn a return trip to state. She will be the 23rd girl out of the gates at state.
Stuart Zell is proving age isn't a handicap when it comes to bowling. The 84-year-old Nisswa resident remains one of top bowlers in his age group in the country. He demonstrated that at the Minnesota United States Bowling Congress State Tournament Oct. 21-Nov. 12, 2017, when he won the singles championship at Chucker's Bowl and Lounge in Rush City. He rolled a 658 series with handicap. His games were 186-180-168. With his 124-pin handicap, he edged runner-up Thomas O'Ryan of St. Paul by six pins. Zell was bowling in the age 75-100 bracket, which included 60 competitors.

HASTINGS—Alex Stone skied to a third-place finish in the Section 5 meet Thursday to qualify for state but unfortunately none of her Brainerd Warriors teammates will accompany her to state next week. Stone qualified for her fourth state appearance but the defending state and section champion Warrior girls team finished third at Afton Alps. Minnetonka captured the girls title with 314 points, Orono was runner-up with 292 and Brainerd third with 273.
That booming, baritone voice, was similar to that of the legendary John Facenda of NFL Films. When John Backlund was on the public address system for Brainerd Warriors football, volleyball, boys and girls basketball and baseball games and wrestling meets you probably never had to turn to the person sitting next to you and ask, "What did he say?" That voice had such volume that you couldn't help but hear it loud and clear.
