The 6-foot-3 junior guard reached a scoring milestone in Nevis' 80-65 win at Red Lake Tuesday night.

One of Pete Stahnke's main goals for the Park Rapids-Menahga-Walker-Hackensack-Akeley boys hockey team this season was to finish in the top-four spots in the Section 8A standings. The Panthers had the perfect opportunity to take a major step toward accomplishing that feat with home games against section rivals Crookston and Lake of the Woods. Instead of making a strong case to receive the No. 4 seed with a pair of wins, the Panthers dropped in the section standings with a pair of shutout losses at the Ted O.
