Clutch hitting and a solid pitching performance helped the Park Rapids fastpitch softball open the season with a victory Thursday afternoon.


Two-out, two-run singles by Katelyn Hilmanowski and Ashley Thelen sparked the offense and backed Olivia Vaadeland's eight-strikeout performance as the Panthers defeated Bagley 6-4 at the Area High School field.

The Panthers took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on a walk to Lexi Burlingame and an RBI double by Lauren Naeve.
