The Parker wrestling team rounded out the regular season last weekend with a strong showing in Howard. The Pheasants were set to face some of the state’s finest, and came away with wins over Mt Vernon/Plankinton/Corsica-Stickney and Howard while falling to Canton bringing their season long dual record to 14-5. Parker next heads to Salem on Saturday for the regional tournament with the top four in each class advancing to the state tournament. Start time is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. The middle school Parker wrestling team also had a busy weekend in Pierre, with Jake Stone taking home the championship at 145 pounds.
