Janesville Parker High’s wrestling team opened the 2019 portion of its schedule with a convincing win Friday.

The Vikings totaled six pins and won 10 of 14 matches en route to a 51-19 Big Eight Conference dual win over Beloit Memorial.

“We had that winter break and we came back on fire,” Parker coach Shane Fleming said. “We haven’t beaten Beloit in the eight years I’ve been up here.”

Parker’s Luke Pleiss (113 pounds), Drexel Norman (120), Blake Krueger (126), Jakob Williams (132), Jacob Bell (170) and Salvador Acosta (220) all won via pin. Nicolas Lux, Alec Anderson and Nathan White earned decisions.

The Vikings improved to 4-1 in Big Eight duals.

Parker travels to Kenosha Bradford for a tournament today.
