Three different paths to the Class 2A state individual meet were taken by three different Detroit Lakes wrestlers during the Section 8-2A tournament Friday and Saturday in Fergus Falls.

Laker heavyweight James Huwe took a shortcut the long way to his state debut, climbing through the wrestlebacks as just a freshman.
