Nate Warda won the 500 freestyle Saturday to lead Janesville Parker’s boys swim team to a second-place finish at the Manitowoc Invitational.

Beloit Memorial won the title in the seven-team event with 481. Parker was second with 431.

Warda, a senior, touched the wall in 5:09.59 to win the 500 freestyle. He was also second in the 200 freestyle.

Parker senior Cameron Odegaard was second in the 100 breaststroke and third in the 200 individual medley.

“We swan very spirited today and dropped a lot of times,” Parker coach Eric Rhodes said. “Our younger guys are starting to figure it out and really stepped up today.”

Parker swims at Sun Prairie in a Big Eight Conference dual meet Friday.
