     Carlson won the long jump with a distance of 18 feet, 5.50 inches and led the field in the 200-meter dash in 23.99 while Fritze took first in the 300 hurdles in 42.92 to lead the Panthers to runner-up honors in the boys meet with 124.50 points. Detroit Lakes was first with 151 points. Carlson and Fritze joined Remington Hagan and Bryce Brovitch on the 4 x 400 relay that also took first in 3:33.66.

     In the girls meet, Kantonen won the 3,200 run in 12:27.35 and joined Megan Olson, Tori Hilmanowski and Ellery Overmyer on the winning 4 x 800 relay team that clocked a 10:26.16. Those two winning efforts led the Panthers to third place with 100 points. Detroit Lakes repeated as conference champs with 194 points while Pequot Lakes was second with 139 points.

     In addition to the four all-conference efforts, the Panthers had six runner-up finishes in the boys meet. Earning all-conference honorable mention honors by taking second were Fritze in the 110 hurdles (17.15), Tristan Breitweser in the 100 dash (12.39), Isaac Overmyer in the 1,600 run (4:45.95) and 3,200 run (10:14.37), Carlson in the 400 dash (50.61) and Brovitch in the high jump (5-8). Hunter Jewison took third in the 1,600 in 4:53.67.

     “I was very pleased with the performance. I thought if we performed well, we could get second,” said Park Rapids head coach Patrick Deegan. “This is a good spring board into the rest of the season. Some of the boys were challenged and responded very well. We had some PR (personal record) times and step-up performances. I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do in subsections and sections.”

     Earning all-conference honorable mention honors for the girls with runner-up showings were Olson in the 1,600 run (5:37.34) and the 4 x 100 relay team of Fenja Boesch, Abby Mueller, Paige Hill and Mady Vaudrin (52.66).

     Placing third for the Panthers were Megan Grimes in the 100 hurdles (17.16) and 300 hurdles (50.96); Christina Mackley in the pole vault (7-6); Jaiden McCollum in the shot put (33-4); the 4 x 200 relay team of Haley MacPherson, McCollum, Bria Wolff and Vaudrin (1:58.07); and the 4 x 400 relay team of Grimes, Olson, Overmyer and Mueller (4:19.99).

     “DL was loaded again, but I was proud of our performance,” said Park Rapids head coach Corey Hill. “We had some miscues in the field events. The lack of practice in field events showed up. It has truly been the most trying year that we have ever encountered due to key injuries and bad weather. Yet with all that, the girls continue to fight and work hard.”

     The Panthers will enter the Subsection 8-29A meet next Thursday at Lake of the Woods.
