Panthers open season with solid rounds

The Park Rapids girls golf team picked up where it left off last season.

A year ago, the Panthers ended the season by carding rounds of 393 and 392. The Panthers opened this season with similar scores.

In the season-opening Perham Invitational last Friday, the Panthers finished second out of 12 teams with a 394. That was one shot behind the 393 carded by the Perham Gold team.

On Tuesday at the Pelican Rapids Invitational at Wildflower, the Panthers carded a 387 to finish second behind Perham's 386 in this eight-team meet.

Katie Kristofferson's 92 and Mary Kading's 95 led the Panthers at Perham. Kirsten Erickson's 102 and Hannah Williams' 105 rounded out the Panthers' team score. Perham's Holly Karkela earned medalist honors with an 85.

At Wildflower, career bests by Williams (96) and Katie Walsh (105) combined with Kading's 90 and Kristofferson's 96 as the Panthers once again battled Perham for the team title. Pelican Rapids' Abby Feist shot an 87 to earn medalist honors.
