Defending state champion Detroit Lakes won a meet that was closer than expected defeating Fergus Falls by five strokes to advance to the state golf tournament next week in Jordan, Minn.


The Otters were charging at the Lakers but a late two-stroke penalty on ruling of a plugged ball on an Otter secured the win for the Lakers.

Perham finished in third place with a score of 315.

The top two individual spots went to qualifiers not on contending teams.
