PERHAM -- While only a freshman, Perham's Jordan Martinson has plenty of experience in tense moments and led the Yellowjackets gymnastics team to a statement victory over section contenders Detroit Lakes Friday.


Perham defeated the Lakers 140.40-137.250.

Prior to the match, Perham was looking up at the Lakers in the state rankings. Perham came in ranked No. 10. The Lakers were No. 4.

The Lakers are hungry for a section title, one that Perham has owned for a decade.
