Wolverine boys basketball squad loses two
Detroit Lakes downs WDC
In a physical contest, the Wadena-Deer Creek boys basketball team fell to the Detroit Lakes Lakers at home on Dec. 10, 81 to 56.
Although they played a solid first half, the Wolverines could not overcome the depth of the Lakers line-up, which built a strong margin in the second half for a decisive Mid-State Conference victory.
Wolverines guard Jared Reintiz led the team in scoring with 18 points, while forward Dylan Dumpprope contributed 15. Dumpprope and fellow forward Alex Redfield each snagged three rebounds.
Detroit Lakes players shared scoring duties, with four of them reaching double-digits.
