Once again, the Detroit Lakes football team will have a place to hang their hat.

The Heart O'Lakes Conference voted to accept Detroit Lakes' application to join the conference, starting in the 2011 season.


The last official step to take is for the DL school board to accept the invite by the HOL Conference.

The Lakers became conference-less this year after the folding of the North Country Conference, in which DL has been playing in the last five years.
