Janesville Parker’s boys golf team opened Big Eight Conference play with a split Tuesday.

The host Vikings shot 375, losing to Madison Memorial (351) but beating Madison West by two strokes.

“We’ve scored a little higher than I thought we might over our first couple rounds,” Parker coach Sam Van Galder said. “There’s potential to improve, but they’ll have to put the time in and want it to happen.”

Memorial’s Silas Pickhart posted the low score of the afternoon, shooting 10-over 82.

Parker was led by Zack Milner’s 89, while Jay Gorman shot 90.

Parker, Janesville Craig, Beloit Memorial and Fort Atkinson will compete in the Tri-City tournament Friday and Saturday at Glen Erin.
