The track and field season approaches its end, and several Park Rapids athletes look to finish with a bang.
The sixth straight section title gives the girls’ team a solid starting block.
Senior Megan Grimes reaches the Class A State Meet for the fourth time.
She runs her second 100 meter hurdles and her third 4 x 200 meter relay.
Grimes offers advice to her younger teammates in the 4 x 200m, Abby Eystad, Abby Mueller, and Jaiden McCollum.
Sophomore Lydia Kantonen qualifies in the 3200m and the 4 x 800m. The relay team also includes Ellery Overmyer, Megan Olson, and Tori Hilmanowski. Kantonen plans to keep it simple in the 3200m.
