— Janesville Parker’s boys track and field team tuned up for Tuesday’s Big Eight Conference meet by winning the Viking Invitational on Friday night at Monterey Stadium.

The Vikings scored 214 points in winning the five-team event. Kenosha Tremper was a distant second with 1512.


Parker coach Joe Dye was surprised by his team’s victory margin.


“I honestly didn’t know we had won until they read the scores at the end,” Dye said. “I thought it would be much closer than that, but I’ll take it.


“It was a total team effort, and that’s what you need in a meet like this.”


Parker won only five of the 18 events, but the Vikings’ depth proved to be the difference.


Riley Grafft stayed unbeaten for the season in the high jump by winning with a leap of 6 feet, 2 inches. Cody Speaker was Parker’s other individual winner in the field events as he topped the pole vault by clearing 12-6. The Vikings’ Paul Tlusty posted a personal best time of 41.8 seconds in winning the 300 intermediate hurdles.


Parker’s 800 and 400 relay teams were also victorious. LaVell Hewlett, Ryan Shelton, Enio Filho-Perez and Cody St. Michael ran a 1:32.26 to win the 800 relay. Hewlett, Shelton, St. Michael and Joe Allen finished in 44.4 to win the 400.


The Big Eight boys and girls conference meet is at Lussier Stadium at Madison La Follette. The Parker boys finished in third place during the dual meet season with a 6-2 record.
