Lakers handle Wolverines on the courts
The Detroit Lakes Lakers shut out Wadena-Deer Creek 7-0 Tuesday in a spring gale on the WDC courts.
Peter Tranvik's Wolverines went down in straight sets in their season opener but there was no head-hanging after the meet.
"They were satisfied with their play, they took a lot of games to deuce," Tranvik said.
The Wolverines have been working on ground strokes since the beginning of practice. Tranvik, who coached Duluth Denfeld for 11 seasons, is a solid believer in the exercise.
"I've told them that if they do that well they'll be in games no matter what," Tranvik said.
