Email News Alerts

There's a simple formula which is being adhered to by the Detroit Lakes softball team -- good defense equals victories.

That's been the trend for the Lakers, who had just one error on the day in a 9-2 victory over Crookston, to improve to 8-4 overall -- but more importantly, 6-1 in Section 8-2A.


Senior pitcher Callea Butz had another solid outing, allowing five hits, striking out five and limiting her walks to just one.
