Janesville Craig and Janesville Parker’s wrestling teams tuned up for this week’s Big Eight Conference dual meet showdown by finishing second in tournaments Saturday.

The Cougars hosted the Craig Invitational and finished second behind Elkhorn. The Elks won the seven-team title with 225 points, while Craig High was second with 210.

Parker went 4-1 at the Delavan-Darien Invitational to finish second behind unbeaten Kenosha Tremper (5-0). The Vikings lost to the Trojans, 54-15, in the championship match.

Siven Furseth led the way for the Cougars. The junior got the 100th win of his career after capturing the 130-pound weight class and improved to 15-0 for the season.

Other individual champions for Craig were Kyle Upmann, 119; Jamie Kumlien, 125; and Chris Pierce, 135.

“We were in the finals at 112 through 140, and I don’t think we expected that. That was a nice surprise,” Craig coach Jeff Kaster said. “It was close all the way through with Elkhorn, but they picked up some points late to win it.

“I told the team afterward that this was a stepping stone to wrestling Parker on Wednesday night. Hopefully, we built up some momentum today.”

Orfordville Parkview’s Alex Hauri was the champion at 103, while Beloit Turner’s Ian Grice (112) and Austin Andrews (140) also won titles.

The champion Elks got titles from Tyler French at 160, Donte Blackburn at 215 and Connor Selver at 285.

Adam Cavey and Aaron Polzin each went 5-0 to lead Parker.

The Vikings defeated Fort Atkinson, Poynette, Milwaukee Hamilton and the host Comets. Parker (4-0 in the Big Eight) will host Craig High on Wednesday night.
