Parker (3-6 in the Big Eight) pushed La Follette in game three but lost 26-24.
"We've proven all year that when we play together and limit our mistakes, we can play with anybody," Parker coach Dave Lehmann said. "But against a team like La Follette, a team like ours has to have a great effort from everybody to have a chance.
"Ashley (Hartwig) had another great night, and some others had some good stats, but we made too many mistakes."
Parker is idle until the Big Eight Conference Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Sun Prairie.
