The Detroit Lakes softball team marked its first two wins of the season in convincing fashion with victories of 13-3 and 11-6 in Wadena-Deer Creek Tuesday.


The key to both victories was the strong defense, something which was lacking in DL’s first four games, said Laker head coach Phil Kirchner.

“The defense played well behind (pitcher) Chaz Butz,” Kirchner said. “The team is getting better and it’s nice to get back on the winning track.”
