Graduation took a lot from the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines, but Tom VanErp and his cagers still have a lofty goal in mind.

"Our goal is to win the Mid-State Conference title," VanErp said as he prepared his team for their 2012-2013 campaign.


The Wolverines were 2-8 in the Mid-State last year and 9-17 overall. Detroit Lakes won the Mid-State with a 10-0 record, but Robb Flint lost eight of his 14 players to graduation. Mid-State runner-up Pequot Lakes lost seven seniors.
