Janesville Parker volleyball rolls past Beloit
Members of the Janesville Parker High volleyball team had their heads down last week after losing a close Big Eight Conference match.
The Vikings rebounded well.
Parker went into Beloit Memorial and swept the Purple Knights, 25-14, 25-15, 25-18, 25-17.
“The kids, for the most part, played really well,” Parker coach Dave Lehmann said. “Nicole Popovich served really well. She led us in aces (5), which is a lot of aces.
“Ashley Hartwig and Paige Demos led us in hitting and blocking. Some of their kills were blocks. And Lindsey Hoff and Natalie McDonald kept the ball off the floor in the backcourt.”
The Vikings (1-1 in the Big Eight, 5-4 overall) were able to pull away in all four games after Beloit stayed with them in the early stages.
The Parker Invitational is Saturday (8:30 a.m.) with Kettle Moraine, Milton, Orfordville Parkview, Deerfield and Jefferson joining the Vikings.
