The Parker wrestling team traveled to Salem last Saturday after a nearly two week hiatus to face off in one of the toughest tournaments of the season.  Parker had four in the top five on their way to sixth place as a team.

“(It was a) really good tournament with a ton of great teams from all over South Dakota, said head coach John Silvernail. 

“We had some really great performances from our wrestlers. Looking forward to continued improvement as we move forward.”

 Parker will next travel to Miller for the Bandit Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 11 with a chance for many Pheasants to get back wins against opponents they lost to on Saturday at MCM.
