Walt Harrison was counting on the Park Rapids girls golf team to consistently shoot rounds under 400 and earn a return trip to the Section 8AA tournament. The Panthers fell short of achieving both goals as Harrison’s team failed to card a round under 400 in eight 18-hole tournaments and ended the season by placing sixth at the Section 8AA North tournament. “We didn’t have enough time to improve that much because of the miserable weather,” said Harrison.
