The ultimate leader, Saxony Lutheran's Brune earns Southeast Missourian Girls Soccer Player of the Year
By Josh Mlot ~ Southeast Missourian ~ 06/29/16
Most teenage girls do not love PowerPoint. Therein lies the caveat with Maddie Brune -- she is not most. Most high school soccer players don't suffer major knee injuries right in the heart of their recruiting window and persevere. Most don't act as a de facto coach. Most don't form personal bonds with talismanic spirit sticks. Most don't lead their teams to a state championship from the sidelines, and then do it again from the heart of the action...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Saxony Lutheran girls soccer has done it again.
NOTEBOOK: Brune has her moment, seniors lead Saxony Lutheran girls soccer to another title
By JOSH MLOT ~ Southeast Missourian ~ 06/02/16
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ahead of the final home practice of the year for the Saxony Lutheran girls soccer team Monday morning, coach Garrett Fritsche sent a text message to his senior captain Maddie Brune. "This is your time." It was a rallying cry for his team's leader, not a prophecy, but in the end it worked as both...
Saxony Lutheran girls soccer romps past Father Tolton in Class 1 semifinal
Josh Mlot ~ Southeast Missourian ~ 06/01/16
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It may be a business trip for Saxony Lutheran girls soccer, but it sure looked like fun on Wednesday. The defending state champions blistered Father Tolton 8-0 in an MSHSAA Class 1 semifinal at Swope Park Soccer Village in Kansas City, Missouri, turning up the heat with a seven-goal second half that left the Trailblazers in the dust to advance to Thursday's state championship...
'This is a business trip:' Pressure makes return to final four a new experience for Saxony Lutheran girls soccer
By Josh Mlot ~ Southeast Missourian ~ 05/31/16
The only word that Saxony Lutheran senior Tess Daniel can form in her head is "indescribable." The feeling of winning a state soccer championship with her fellow Crusaders a year ago escapes her grasp, or at least the grasp of her tongue. So, too, does the thought of winning a second one, which is the goal -- the expectation, really -- as the Saxony Lutheran girls soccer team opens its second consecutive trip to the MSHSAA Class 1 final four today...
Saxony Lutheran girls soccer marches past Principia in Class 1 sectional
By Josh Mlot ~ Southeast Missourian ~ 05/26/16
ST. LOUIS -- There was no celebration, just a handshake and a huddle. This time around, it was all business for the Saxony Lutheran girls soccer team. With pressure -- both internal and external -- to defend their Class 1 state championship, the Crusaders secured a return trip to the final four Wednesday with a 6-2 victory over Principia, and they walked off the field knowing there's still more left to do...
For Saxony Lutheran soccer team, where there's a Wills, there's laughter, inspiration and a way
By Josh Mlot ~ Southeast Missourian ~ 05/23/16
"Tell me about Heather Wills." It's not exactly a punchline in a stand-up comedy routine, but any time it's uttered around the Saxony Lutheran girls soccer team, it seems to evoke laughter. Not a mocking type of laughter, but a knowing type. The type that tells you a lot without you really being told anything...
Saxony Lutheran girls soccer prevails past St. Vincent, wins district in PKs
By Josh Mlot ~ Southeast Missourian ~ 05/18/16
It was, by the team's own admission, it's most frustrating game of the season, but when it was over, Saxony Lutheran girls soccer coach Garrett Fritsche checked his pulse and summed things up with four words. "We pulled it off." In a fitting ending to an epic clash, Crusader senior captain Maddie Brune -- who missed out on her team's 2015 state championship campaign because of a torn ACL -- stepped to the penalty spot and smacked the ball to the right side of goal and past diving St. ...
