At the beginning of the season, head coach Stephanie Hanson was confident the Park Rapids volleyball team could develop into a Section 8AA contender. It took the Panthers only one match to live up to that prediction. Despite opening the season with a 3-2 loss to Roseau, that match set the stage for a successful season. Roseau entered the season rated No. 9 in the state Class AA poll.
Brad Neyens is looking to build a successful program as he takes over as head coach of the Nevis girls basketball team. "Coaching varsity basketball and building a successful program has always been a goal of mine. Nevis gave me a chance. Now it's time to build a successful program," said Neyens. "We have a great youth program in place, which is the first step to maintaining consistency and keeping kids on the basketball court. I really believe we have the players and the coaches in place to make this happen."

As the new head coach of the Park Rapids-Menahga-Nevis-Walker-Hackensack-Akeley boys hockey team, Pete Naugle's main concern is who will take over offensively. Naugle takes over for Pete Stahnke, who compiled a 199-128-18 record and 10 winning records in 13 seasons as head coach. Stahnke led the Panthers to the Section 8A semifinals three times, including one time since the merger with W-H-A in 2010. Stahnke leaves with the most coaching wins in the history of the boys hockey program.
Jeff Overmyer will be focusing on defense as he takes over as the head coach of the Park Rapids girls basketball team. Overmyer inherits some veteran players off a team that went 2-6 in Mid-State Conference play and 12-14 overall last season. Offense was the key to hitting double digits in wins as the Panthers averaged 62.6 points a game. However, the Panthers struggled at times defensively by allowing 59.4 points a night and went 2-10 in games where the opponent scored at least 65 points.
