PERHAM — Jordan Harms ripped a two-out, full-count liner down the third base line to score Kody Crabtree giving the Hawley Nuggets a 7-6 extra-inning victory over Perham to stave off elimination and force a winner-take-all second game Friday afternoon for the Minnesota Section 8AA baseball championship. “I was just trying to hit it square, hit a line drive in a gap somewhere,” said Harms. “It happened to work out, off his glove, but we’ll take it.”
WALKER — Sophomore Becca Huus knows what it takes to qualify for the state golf meet and did so for the second straight year carding an 81 to lead the Perham girls team and keep the streak of Perham girls players at state in tact. Huus follows Holly Karkela and good friend Rachel Nelson in a streak that stretches back to the 2008-2009 golf season. Huus qualified last year as a freshman and found out the hard way what life can be like at the state meet in Jordan where weather typically seems to play a strong element.
WALKER — The Perham boys golf season came to a close Tuesday at the Section 8AA meet at Long Bow Golf Course in Walker with the Yellowjackets finishing in sixth place.

HAWLEY — The No. 7AA Perham Yellowjackets (19-2) have not forgotten what got last year’s ball club to the state championship game. Perham employed the bunt far more in two playoff games than they did all season and playing smallball aided in a playoff sweep to defend the top-seed in the south subsection. "Last time we pulled out the suicide squeeze was in state playoffs last year," said Josh Still.
