Smith 2nd in S-S with a 78
Another step to the ultimate goal of the Detroit Lakes boys' golf team was taken Thursday, after the Lakers shot a South Sub-Section low 317 at the Wildflower Golf Course.
But DL will have some stiff competition come Tuesday for the Section 8-2A meet at Longbow Golf Course in Walker, as Perham was a close second with a 321 and Hawley third at 322.
Perham's Evan Arvig took medalist laurels with a five-over par 77, while three were tied for second at 78 including DL sophomore Karter Smith, D-G-F's Chris Clark and Hawley's Brett Severson.
Austin Rusness and Tanner Lane each shot a seven-over 79, while Connor Hedstrom's 81 was the fourth score counted.
Nate Ginnaty shot an 83 and Michael Herzog an 84 to cap DL's scorecard.
