It's been a record setting year for the Detroit Lakes High School speech team, which will send three competitors and two alternates to the Minnesota State Speech Tournament next weekend.

The 21-member DL speech team placed fourth in the Section 8AA Tournament, held in Alexandria on Saturday, April 8.
