Brandt is an A student who’s studying to become a nurse, though she admits, “Some of the things I say and do, you wouldn’t expect that. I tend to speak before I think, so people quote me all the time.”
Asked for her favorite Brandt story, Lorence paused and said, “There are so many. … She definitely has the most embarrassing moments on the team.”
Stecklein captured one on videotape. She went Halloween costume shopping with Brandt and Gophers captain Bethany Brausen last fall. Brausen grabbed an ugly mask and hid behind a corner, and Stecklein grabbed her cellphone to start videotaping.
When Brandt came around the corner, she saw Brausen’s mask and collapsed in fear.
“She said, ‘I think someone hit me,’ ” Stecklein said. “And I was like, ‘No, Hannah, you fell.’ ”
Lorence recently sent Brandt a collage filled with photos of some of her most spectacular falls. She sprinkled in a few photos of herself falling, along with linemate Maryanne Menefee’s stumbles, too.
That trio has combined up 56 goals this season, but they call themselves The Awkward Line.
“We can make some pretty plays, but then we’ll also look like a bunch of clowns out there,” Brandt said.
With Brandt providing the thrills and spills, the Gophers hope to keep laughing all the way to another championship.
