After graduating seven seniors, Kerry Johnson wasn’t sure what to expect from the Park Rapids boys cross-country team this season. The one sure thing Johnson could count on was having senior Isaac Overmyer contend for the top spot at every meet. Overmyer entered the season rated No. 3 in the state Class A poll. Aside from Overmyer, only seniors Tyler Breitweser and Alex Boyd had competed in a varsity meet.
After failing to advance to the finals at last year’s state Class A girls swimming meet, Park Rapids senior Lauren Rossman and juniors Kayla Andersen, Paige Fritze and Tea Nyland were determined to swim the second day at this year’s state meet. All four fulfilled that mission as the Panthers advanced to the consolation finals in two events and scored 13 points to tie for 31st place Friday at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center. The 200-yard medley relay team of Fritze, Andersen, Nyland and Rossman fin
Considering having to unexpectedly replace two runners from last year’s state-qualifying team, returning to the state Class A meet was a huge accomplishment for the Park Rapids girls cross-country team this fall. Because of illnesses and injuries, junior Tayah Otterness and sophomore Madison Steffel were able to compete in only three meets apiece this fall. That left two key spots to fill. Fortunately, the Panthers had their other five returning runners healthy for most of the season.
Paige Myhre’s goal with 3:36 to play gave the Park Rapids-Menahga-Nevis-Walker-Hackensack-Akeley girls hockey team a 3-2 Mid-State Conference win over Northern Lakes at Breezy Point Thursday night. After a scoreless first period, Myhre’s power-play goal gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead. Lexi Hinkley-Smith assisted on that goal at the 3:50 mark. Tayah Otterness followed with a goal at the 8:54 mark as the Panthers led 2-0.
Mariah Gardner’s two goals and two assists sparked Warroad to a 7-1 win over the Park Rapids-Menahga-Nevis-Walker-Hackensack-Akeley girls hockey team Tuesday night at the Ted O. Johnson Ice Arena. Gardner’s two goals and assist gave Warroad a 4-0 lead after the first period.
Lauren Rossman had a mission to cap off her senior season by qualifying for the state Class A girls swimming meet in an individual event. Rossman, who had qualified for state three times in six relays, fulfilled that goal with a runner-up finish in the 50-yard freestyle at last Saturday’s Section 8A meet at Bemidji. Thanks to juniors Kayla Andersen, Alyza Edevold, Paige Fritze and Tea Nyland, Rossman also qualified for state in two relays as the Panthers sent five swimmers to state in five events.
Peaking entering the Section 8AAA playoffs was the main goal for the Park Rapids football team this season. After finishing the toughest part of the schedule with a 1-5 record, the Panthers regrouped to end the season on a high note.
Todd Fritze couldn’t have asked for a better start and finish to Saturday’s Section 8A girls swimming and diving meet at Bemidji. Junior Paige Fritze, junior Kayla Andersen, junior Tea...
