Boys look to offset lack of numbers with quality efforts
With only 19 athletes, Pat Deegan knows the Park Rapids boys track and field team can't rely on depth to produce success.
Instead, the new head coach will be relying on quality performances to help the Panthers finish in the top half of meets this season.
Deegan, who was the head track coach at Pine River-Backus for three years and was the Panthers' assistant coach last season, will be counting on last year's six Section 8A qualifiers to lead the way this spring.
