The final tally of the Mid-State Conference meet was as tight as it could get, as the Pequot Lakes/Pine River-Backus wrestling team survived Detroit Lakes by five points at 218-213.


The conference meet, which was held inside Ralph Anderson Gym Friday, had a half a dozen Lakers winning weight titles, while PL/PRB had five.

The Lakers especially did well in their middle and upper weights, where they won the final six of nine classes.
