Panthers closing in on goal
One of the goals of the Park Rapids girls golf team this season was to shoot a round under 400.
The Panthers are closing in on that goal.
Led by Katie Kristofferson's 88, Hannah Williams' 97, Mariena Dearstyne's 104 and Katie Walsh's 113, the Panthers just missed that mark with a season best 402 to finish sixth at Monday's Park Rapids Invitational at Headwaters Country Club. Walt Harrison's team carded a 403 in the previous meet.
Pequot Lakes led the 14-team field with a 335 while Staples-Motley's Emily Israelson earned medalist honors with an 81. The tournament was delayed two hours because of frost on the greens.
Allyson Snyder and McKenzie Harris carded 111s to lead Nevis while Heather Brostrom's 106 and Ally Ohlgren's 108 led United North Central.
