Former Lakers Grace and Clara Livermore contributed to the College of Saint Benedict swimming and diving team’s start to its 2017-18 season with a solid win at the Hamline Invite Saturday afternoon.
In words and deeds, this year’s girls swimming and diving team is the best in Detroit Lakes high school history. Head Coach Carol McCarthy has noted as much in interviews and a visit to a meet makes one easily aware of the talent base that has led to a season of rewriting records books at the home pool and away.

After transferring to Frazee for eighth grade, she finished 93rd with teammate Megan Danielson, a seventh-grader, finishing 65th in her debut at state.
Pequot Lakes entered Fargo on Thursday having lost four straight section championship football games on the Fargodome turf. The Patriots said no more, rolling Perham 56-22 in the Minnesota Class 3A, Section 8 title game. "This was worth the wait," Pequot Lakes senior running back and defensive back Nathan Traut said. "The feeling it feels so great finally winning one after losing four straight years. It's crazy. Past couple years we had tears, and now we're shedding tears of joy."
The Mahnomen Indians offense had a different look Thursday night at the Fargodome with a player wearing No. 50 and listed as an offensive and defensive lineman playing in the backfield.
Nevis forced two big turnovers in the second half to hang on for a 20-18 victory over Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal Thursday afternoon at Fargodome in the Minnesota Section 6, 9-man championship game. “We talked about it being a fourth quarter type of a game with those guys,” Nevis head coach Shawn Klimek said. “They want to ball control and we want to take the roof off the place every play.”
The top-seeded Nevis Tigers like to hit the big play and Fargodome will provide a perfect climate to do so in Thursday’s Section 6, 9-man championship game. The one roadblock to the state tournament is a tough No. 3 Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal Titans squad looking to hand Nevis both losses this season. Each team is ranked in the top 10 of the state polls and has only one loss this season.
The No. 3 Barnesville Trojans appeared headed for a deciding fifth set but Elora Passa led a late charge in the fourth set to down No. 2 Pelican Rapids 3-1 (25-22, 16-25, 25-22, 27-25) in a Section 6A volleyball quarterfinal Tuesday in Fergus Falls. Pelican Rapids had set point to even the match at two sets apiece leading 24-17, but Barnesville won 10 of 11 points to clinch the match 27-25.
