— Shelby Demos won three events to help Parker split in a Big Eight Conference triple dual Tuesday.

The Vikings beat Madison La Follette, 78-63, but lost to Sun Prairie, 87-53.


“The wind made it very difficult for everybody competing today,” Parker coach Dave Lehmann said.


“And it got cold by the end of the meet, especially for the girls competing in the pole vault.


“Our kids did well considering the windy conditions, and despite the fact that we’re still battling some injuries in our lineup.”


Demos, a junior, won the 100 high and 300 low hurdles, as well as the high jump. Other winners for Parker were Kelsey Jones in the 200 and Erika Moen in the discus.


The Vikings, 4-1 overall and 3-1 in the Big Eight, will host the Parker Invitational on Friday night at Monterey Stadium.
