Despite not having a senior on the roster, head coach Walt Harrison is counting on a successful season from a veteran Park Rapids girls golf team. A year ago, the Panthers fell short of carding a round under 400 and ended the season placing fifth at the Mid-State Conference meet with a 435 and sixth at the Section 8AA North tournament with a 425. However, with 11 golfers who competed on varsity last year returning, Harrison is looking for the Panthers to vastly improve on those numbers. “We’
With six seniors leading the way, head coach Mike Baumgartner is expecting the Park Rapids boys tennis team to put a competitive team on the courts this spring.

Ten different players contributed a hit as a 15-hit attack sparked a 15-5 five-inning victory over Bagley Thursday afternoon. Park Rapids also capitalized on eight Bagley errors and six walks to coast to the win. The Panthers strung together seven hits in scoring six runs in the second inning to take control.

Mark Waller is hoping to follow one of the best seasons in school history with another successful season as he takes over as head coach of the Park Rapids baseball team. A year ago, the Panthers shared the Mid-State Conference title with Perham with an 11-1 record and contended for the Section 8AA title after entering the playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the north. The Panthers won their first three playoff games before finishing third after a 10-3 loss to Perham and a 6-5 loss to Hawley.
Struggling to score against Section 8A opponents resulted in the Park Rapids-Menahga-Nevis-Walker-Hackensack-Akeley boys hockey team getting the No. 8 seed for the playoffs, being eliminated in the quarterfinals for the fourth year in a row and finishing with a 12-15 overall record. Except for a 10-1 win over Bagley/Fosston (the No. 10 seed in the section with a 2-19 record), the Panthers went 2-11 and were outscored 57-22 in the other 13 regular-season games against section opponents.

Leading the Panthers to a 16-8 record last season were the six seniors: Lauren Naeve, Bailee Jerger, Shania Johnson, Charity Ridlon, Morgan Dean and Christina Smith. Naeve was the Panthers’ starting catcher for four seasons and ended her career with a school-record 567 puto
