Lakers clinch No. 1 seed for State


Graham Brown beats the tag sliding back to second base in the Lakers’ 7-2 win over the Loretto Lark, their second in three days, which secured the No. 1 seed for the State Tournament.

 

The Maple Lake Lakers secured the No. 1 seed from Region 12C over the weekend with two wins over the Loretto Larks. 
The No. 1 seed grants the Lakers a first-round bye and the first pick in the 12C pitchers draft, which occurred Sunday after the championship game. Maple Lake chose Ben Hendrickson from the Maple Plain Diamond Devils and Tyler Zweibohmer and Kyle Kaczmarek from the Dassel-Cokato Saints.  
The other seeds for Region 12C were also determined as Loretto took the No. 2 seed, Howard Lake took the No. 3 seed, and Delano took the No. 4 seed over the course of the weekend. Those seeds will start the tournament next weekend in Jordan and Belle Plaine while the Lakers must wait until the following weekend for their first game.
