Janesville Parker tennis slips past Sun Prairie
The Vikings won two out of three doubles matches en route to a 4-3 Big Eight Conference dual meet win over Sun Prairie.
Parker (2-5 in the conference) won three matches in a third-set tiebreaker.
“It was a real exciting win for us because of the pressure involved in having almost every match go three sets,” Parker coach Mike Fuhrmann said. “We continue to improve each and every day, and that’s what is most important.”
Parker plays Janesville Craig at Palmer Park on Thursday afternoon at 4:15.

-- Middleton 7, Craig 0—The host Cardinals rolled past the Cougars in a Big Eight dual meet.

“They’re obviously one of the best teams we’ve seen all season,” Craig coach Justin Long said. “We were competitive in a couple of matches, but we just couldn’t get any momentum going in those matches.”
