A slow start to the Detroit Lakes Invitational Saturday resulted in a sluggish overall beginning for the Laker softball team.

But the ending was much nicer, as the Lakers downed Fergus Falls 8-1 to pick up important QRF points for the section seeding process.


The Lakers (6-3) also gained a pair of wins in the Mid-State Conference standings with a sweep of visiting Wadena-Deer Creek Tuesday by the scores of 18-2 and 13-2.
