Janesville Parker downs Sun Prairie, Craig falls
Led by the unbeaten No. 1 doubles team of Maddie Theisen and Kristen Zeilinger, Janesville Parker’s girls tennis team cruised to a Big Eight Conference victory Thursday.
The Vikings swept all three doubles matches and won three of four singles matches in earning a 6-1 win over Sun Prairie.
Theisen and Zeilinger improved to 16-0 with a straight set victory.
“Our team played much better today than we did in our two previous matches against Verona and Middleton,” Parker coach Justin Long said. “It’s nice to experience a good win after a couple of tough losses.
“And Maddie and Kristen continue to roll along.”
Meghann Hoag, Megan Mitchell and Emma Frerichs won at singles for Parker, while Karissa Haney and Rosalie Sellman, along with Ashley Lindsey and Elizabeth Severance, won at doubles.
Parker plays crosstown rival Craig on Tuesday at Palmer Park.
