The Brainerd High School softball team has started the season 10-1, but still has plenty to prove and a lot to play for. The Warriors have 12 seniors who want to finish strong in their careers and the coaching career of Mike Zauhar. Zauhar has been the Brainerd softball head coach for 14 seasons and has coached various teams for 42 years. In November, 2013, Zauhar learned he has stage one breast cancer. He planned to retire from coaching, but the kind prayers and messages he received from players and their parents brought him back for one final season. Lakeland Public Television wishes the best for Zauhar in his battle against cancer.
