The Parker wrestling team found stiff competition last week as they traveled to Presho for a new add on to their schedule, the Mid Dakota Monster tournament. The Pheasants faced several competitors from both class ‘A’ and ‘B’ and managed to stay hot, as two wrestlers made the championship with four others placing the in event. 

“Jack Even took home seventh place. Jack continues to get better every time he steps on the mat. We are excited to see how he will finish the season,” remarked head coach John Silvernail.” “Michael Even took home third place at 132 pounds. Michael is really getting after it this year. Levi Wieman and Charlie Patten both found a way to get in the finals on Saturday. Both wrestlers lost in the finals but will use the losses as valuable learning experiences. We were really impressed with how all the guys battled all weekend long. This team is going to surprise some people over the next few weeks and look to battle all the way to the State Tournament.”

Parker is next at West Lyon Tuesday and Tri-Valley on Saturday.
