Parker’s Zimmerman retires
John Zimmerman, the only coach in the 16-year history of the Janesville Parker High School girls golf program, has resigned.
Citing a desire to spend more time with his family, Zimmerman informed Parker principal Steve Schroeder and athletic director Rick Lehman of his decision last week.
“It was tough to give up something that I thoroughly enjoyed doing for 16 years, but it was time,” Zimmerman said. “We had a great run, and working with the kids is what made it all worthwhile.”
Zimmerman’s final season saw the Vikings qualify for the WIAA Division 1 state tournament for the first time in school history. Parker won three Big Eight Conference championships under Zimmerman and one regional title.
