Maple Lake’s boys and girls track teams are both headed to the True Team State Track and Field Championships in Stillwater after coming up big, Tuesday, May 9, at the true team 4A meet in Maple Lake.
The two teams have been perennials at the prestigious event until losses last year ended a four-year winning streak for the Irish.
“It’s nice to go back,” head coach Ben Youngs said.
The boys were in a dogfight the whole way, Tuesday, according to Youngs. “They were trading the lead with Concordia Academy the last half of the meet. After the 3,200, with three events left, it was a 2.5-point difference. Concordia Academy gained on us in pole vault, but we gained more than that in discus, so we had a 9.5 lead going into the 4x4. We took second and they took 11th, so we gained 27 to make it look less close than in really was.”

The Maple Lake Lakers split their two games last week, putting them towards the top of the North Star League with a 2-1 overall mark. Derek Rachel showed his power this week, hitting at least one double in each game.

Maple Lake 8
Visiting Montrose/Waverly wasted little time jumping on Friday night’s starter Luke Fobbe, putting the home team in an early hole. The Lakers rallied around Fobbe, putting up one in the first, two in the second, and another in the third. The runs must have had a calming effect on Fobbe, who went for five innings, giving up the one run while getting three strikeouts. Nick Preisinger and Logan Orazem each contributed two more innings to finish out the game.
