The Detroit Lakes girls’ golf team had a shot fly across their bow Tuesday, after the Lakers’ closest win in quite some time.

The Class 2A top-ranked Lakers earned a nice victory – their 29th in a row – in the Red Wing Invite, beating New Prague by two strokes and host Red Wing by four.


Red Wing has been bumped back down to Class 2A, so they are a team to keep close tabs on as the Lakers are heavy favorites to three-peat as state champions.
