Boys' track wins conference crown

by Rachael Paumen
After being rescheduled due to unfavorable weather, the Section 7A True Team track and field meet was held on Thursday, May 13 in Holdingford. Although the meet was rescheduled in hopes of finding a day with better weather, it was less than successful as Thursday was cold and wet. 
Unlike many other meets, all participants in each event earn points for their team. With all points totaled the girls ended the evening in third place and the boys finished in second.

Legion team is District 6 runner-up

The Maple Lake Legion baseball team traveled to Paynesville on Thursday, July 23, for the first round of the District 6 Legion playoffs. This year's double elimination tournament had eight teams: Maple Lake, Paynesville, Bertha-Hewitt, Royalton, Cross Lake, Kimball, Aitkin, and Sebeka.

Maple Lake took on tournament host Paynesville in the first round. Their bats came up big early and built a big enough lead for Maple Lake to win the game easily.

Maple Lake won the coin flip to determine the home team and elected to take the field. Cam Knudsen started the game pitching and struggled with his control early. He got help from his shortstop, Brian Redemske, who turned a 6-3 double play to get him out of a jam.
