Minnesota Whitecaps Hannah Brandt and Lee Stecklein took the stage Wednesday night at the Minnesota Sports Awards, while Whitecaps coaches Ronda Engelhardt and Laura Slominski and captain Winny Brodt Brown also joined the festivities at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

The pair of Olympic gold medalists spoke on a panel, discussing growing up without the promise of playing professionally and what it means to have that reality now. They also discussed the Whitecaps’ unbeaten start and enticed the crowd to continue to follow the team.

The Whitecaps representatives also spoke with legendary Star Tribune columnist Sid Hartman, who was inducted into the Minnesota Sports Hall of Fame at 98 years old.
