Email News Alerts

Only 36 seconds separated Detroit Lakes' freshman Austin Askelson and a date with the Class 1A state Nordic skiing meet.

Unfortunately, Askelson ended up being on the outside looking in, as was junior Zach Foltz, who was just 42 seconds from making the state cut.


The two Lakers' finishes were not surprising yet they were two performances that are encouraging to DL's future.
