It wasn’t the best timing for Fargo’s Tim Rubis, after he was told by his doctor last Monday that he needed hip-replacement surgery. The news came on the same week Rubis was going to play in the Pine to Palm Golf Tournament’s Senior division, but he was battling the pain which came with a degenerating hip. Instead of opting out of the tournament, Rubis had a cortisone shot to help deal with the pain. Good call. Rubis earned his second Pine to Palm Senior’s championship Sunday at the Detroit Country Club with his 1-up victory over Craig Stein.

Being wrong comes with living, it happens as sure as you breath and blink. Admitting when you’re wrong doesn’t appeal to most people, but when it’s in print for all to read, just own up to it. With my time dwindling down here in Detroit Lakes, I would like to own up to one of my worst calls in my 16-year career here.

The learning curve continued for the youthful Detroit Lakes Post 15 baseball team, after going 0-3 in last weekend’s Water Carnival Tournament at Washington Ballpark. The Post 15 squad will now enter Sub-State tournament play as the No. 8 seed and will face top seed Moorhead Thursday at 1 p.m.
The Detroit Lakes Angels will be vying for their fourth Region 14C title after earning another berth into the tournament with a 3-0 win over visiting Wadena-Deer Creek last weekend. The Hi-10 top seed Angels then fell to No.
When the Minnesota Vikings report to their annual training camp in Mankato Thursday, the spotlight will be on a couple of areas, which include the quarterback position and the defense in general. No doubt, the path the quarterback battle between incumbent Matt Cassel and rookie Teddy Bridgewater will directly determine how smooth a transition it will be for the first-year coaching staff, led by Mike Zimmer. Add in the fact of the remaking of the defensive unit under the D-minded Zimmer, those two items will occupy the majority of sports pages regarding the Vikings’ preseason in the next
The U-18 Detroit Lakes softball team finished as runner-up in the regional tournament in Hawley, missing a state berth by one game. The No. 4 seeded Lakers upset No. 1 Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton in the semifinals 5-2, but fell to Hawley in nine innings 5-4 in the championship game. They opened with a convincing 4-1 victory over Norman County East. “The team played well through the tournament and many of the players stepped up and did what they needed to do,” said head coach Tom Vagle.
The growing pains for the Detroit Lakes Legion Post 15 baseball team continued in a pair of 12-2 losses in Perham Tuesday. Playing with a majority of junior varsity players from the spring Laker season, Perham overpowered the DL pitchers, while collecting minimal offense. “The reality of the situation is we are playing JV players versus varsity players and the speed of the game is much different for us,” said DL head coach Mitch McLeod.
