The Janesville Parker and Janesville Craig track and field teams fared well Friday night at Burlington’s 15th annual Demon Invitational in their final big event leading up to next week’s Big Eight Conference meet.

Parker’s teams both finished second in the 15-team event. The Vikings girls finished with 98 points, just 3.5 behind winner Waterford. The boys scored 81 points to finish 21 back of winning Racine Case.

The Craig boys were third with 73.5 points, and the girls were fifth with 60.

Senior Brooke Graesslin helped lead the Parker girls. She ran a leg of the team’s blistering 1:47.74 winning time in the 800-meter relay and immediately turned around to win the 400 in 1:00.62.

“That’s a really tough thing to do,” Parker girls coach Mark Little said. “That was a huge time for our 4x2 team, and a big improvement. That might be one of the better times in the state after this weekend.”

Junior Ryann Porter was part of that relay, won the triple jump and finished second in both hurdles events. Senior Tina Shelton was on the relay team and was second in both sprints.

“Everyone right now has stayed healthy to this point, and that’s a big goal,” Little said. “We’re trying to get them all to peak at the right time.”

The Parker boys were led by senior Tremar Curry’s winning leap of 43-7 in the triple jump. The Vikings were also second in the 400 and 1,600 relays and third in the 800 relay.

The Craig boys had several event winners.

Junior Magnus Jenson set a personal best with a winning heave of 46 feet, 4 inches in the shot put. Senior Aaron Leverson ran another sub-1:56 800 meters, senior Trevion Moore ran a sub 15-second time in the 110 hurdles and the Cougars won the 3,200 relay.

“Great to see from Magnus,” Craig boys coach Jeff Deininger said. “And Trevion ran a great race tonight against good competition.

“We’re starting to put things together ahead of our conference meet next week.”

Clare Hulick won the 800 for Craig on the girls side, running in 2:22.44. The Cougars also won the 3,200 relay.

“We also had a huge PR for Gabby Petruzzello tonight in the 3,200 to finish third,” Craig coach Brad Troeger said. “This is our first really big meet, where you have a lot of different teams, so it was a good challenge.”

Milton also had several event winners. On the girls side, Mara Talaback won the two-mile, while Chrissy Hughes captured the 100 hurdles. On the boys side, Dane Nelson was first in the 300 hurdles and second in the 110 hurdles. The Red Hawks also won the 800 relay.

Craig and Parker are off until Friday’s Big Eight meet at Madison La Follette.
