Friday night’s Cougar Relays belonged to the Parker Vikings.
Janesville Parker’s boys and girls track and field teams relied on their depth to win team titles in the 72nd running of the relays at Monterey Stadium.
The Parker girls finished with 142 points to win the five-team event, while the Vikings boys finished with 123.
Milton was second in the girls and Janesville Craig second in the boys.
Parker boys coach Dick Schuh said his team continues to make strides.
“Our jumpers really came through for us tonight,” Schuh said. “We put Tremar (Curry) in the high jump, which helped us win the event, and he also had the best jump in the triple. He continues to really show good progression.”
Curry, a senior, was on the winning high jump, triple and 800 relay teams.
The Craig boys got strong performances from senior Aaron Leverson and sophomore Bryan Bloomquist in finishing second. Bloomquist had the top time in the 3,200-meter run, while Leverson was on three winning relay teams.
“We had some guys step up tonight and fill roles because of some injuries,” Craig coach Jeff Deininger said. “And we also did very well in the sprints and distance relays.”
The Parker girls cruised to the team title behind big nights from Ryann Porter, Tina Shelton, Brooke Graesslin, Amber Schoville and Catie Gage.
Porter, a junior, was on four winning relay teams. She had the best individual effort in triple jump and the 300 low hurdles.
Schoville, a freshman, ran on three victorious relay teams and also had the best individual effort in pole vault.
“This was a meet that we really wanted to win,” Parker girls coach Mark Little said. “We talked about that at practice, and then filled out what we thought was our best lineup in each event.
“It came down to our depth. We only have 33 girls on the roster, but they went out and did a great job tonight.”
The Craig girls were strong in the distance relays, while also winning shot put and finishing second in discus.
Clare Hulick, Ivy White and Rylee Coleman all ran on two winning relays.
“I thought we did a really nice job in the throws,” Craig girls coach Brad Troeger said. “And our distance runners continue to do good things.”
