LITTLEST LAKER – Fifteen-month-old Richard Wasmuth IV gets his first installment of Laker Spirit, thanks to a close encounter with Seamore the Sea Duck in front of Lake Superior State University's booth during Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan's Downtown Days on Aug. 1. The venerable LSSU mascot has been a fan staple at home athletic events for at least 30 years. Run a Web search on "LSSU Seamore" to read about any upcoming appearances on campus or throughout the Eastern Upper Peninsula as they are planned. Holding young Richard is mom Trisha; looking on from the right is Brenda Cooper with LSSU's School of Education. Not pictured is Richard's father, Richard III. The family resides in the Sault.
