Mankato, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The Cloquet softball team won the third place trophy in the MSHSL Class AA state tournament on Friday afternoon, beating Maple River by an 8-3 final score.

Senior Shania Paulson was the offensive leader for the Lumberjacks, finishing 3-for-4 at the plate with three runs batted in.
