After an eventful several seasons on the golf course, dividends are paying off for Detroit Lakes senior Karter Smith.

The Laker golfing prodigy signed a letter of intent to play for the Drake University's (Iowa) men's golf team, starting in the fall of 2013.


Smith's commitment to the Bulldogs comes after a very active -- and successful -- high school career with the Lakers, where he has been playing since his seventh grade year.
