Steph Hanson is counting on a successful summer to lead to a successful fall for the Park Rapids volleyball team. The Park Rapids head coach put together a competitive schedule this summer to prepare her team for the high school season. A year ago, the Panthers went 19-6 and earned the No. 1 seed in the South for the Section 8AA tournament. A loss to Pequot Lakes, the No. 4 seed in the South, in the second round ended Park Rapids' season prematurely.

Marion Goeden hopes the members of the Park Rapids fastpitch softball team won't dwell on the final game of the season. Instead, the Panthers' head coach hopes the team will remember all the other moments from a historic season. The Panthers went 20-0 during the regular season to earn the No. 1 seed in the South for the Section 8AA tournament. Two losses to defending section champion Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton during the section tournament prevented the Panthers from accomplishing their main goal of qualifying for the state Class AA tournament.
