— Janesville Parker High School’s girls swim team turned to its seniors in the Cougar Relays here Saturday at Janesville Craig.

The Vikings, behind strong performances from the nine seniors on the team, finished fourth overall in the eight-team event.


Led by seniors Jenna Miland, Bridget Kortyna and Sam Anacker, the Vikings finished with 248 points. Rockford Boylan won with 332 while Milton A was second with 318. The host Cougars finished fourth with 246.


Parker coach Andrea Nickel said the Vikings were ecstatic over their productive day.


“I’m very happy with the way we swam and the outstanding meet that we had, but I’m really excited for our seniors who have meant so much to this program,” Nickel said. “We brought all of our seniors to the meet, and everyone contributed.


“And in what was our last big Saturday meet, I know beating Craig means a lot to the girls, especially the seniors. So overall, it was a great day.”


Miland, Kortyna and Anacker swam to a third-place finish in the 300 breaststroke relay.


Nickel also praised the efforts of junior Megan Olin, along with sophomores Sam Witek and Emily Mauermann, who swam the freestyle sprints.


Parker will celebrate Senior Night on Wednesday with a Big Eight Conference home meet against Middleton beginning at 5 p.m.
