The Lakers advance to the state true team meet for the second straight year.

Perham had one event victory in the 1600-meter run from freshman Sydney Karels. Each event is worth 20 points with a sliding scale of one point deducted for each place in the top 20, i.e. 20th place is worth one point. Relays are worth 30 points. DL accrued 90 points by winning three of the four relay races.

Brynnan Covington finished third behind Karles and the duo combined for 38 points. Karels winning time was 5:22.97. Covington finished in 5:23.92.

The Covington sisters each placed in the top five in the 800m run. Brynna was third in 2:30.58, while Ciarrin finished fifth in 2:35.63.

Karels was runner-up (12:05.75) in the 3200-m run behind Roseau sophomore Madeline Huglen (11:53.22). Lizzie Fudge cracked the top 10 with a ninth place finishing time of 12:54.15.

Natalie Murphy and Olivia Nelson continued to post top marks in both the 100m and 300m hurdles.

Murphy (17.20) was third in the 100, while Nelson was eighth (18.70). The duo switched order in the lengthier 300-meter race with Nelson finishing second (49.30) to Detroit Lakes sophomore Kyley Foster (47.46), while Murphy placed fourth in 50.67.
