The Class 2A state meet will once again have a Detroit Lakes runner in it, after Laker junior Matthew Lundstrom made the Section 8-2A cut by taking fifth place Thursday at the Lakeview Golf Course in DL.


Not since 2005 has a Laker boy runner qualified for state, with the last one being Shane Wyborney.

But Lundstrom changed that after he ran strong throughout the entire 5K race, as he was at pace with the lead pack the entire way.
