Girls Golf: Tigers hold on to seventh spot in Missota

Mia Johnston
Low Farmington scorer at conference finale

The Tigers didn't produce the big day that coach Rob Carpentier was looking for but they still managed to hold on to hold on to the seventh spot in the final Missota Conference standings.
Farmington trailed the field in the final conference meet played Monday, May 23, at the Ridges at Sand Creek Golf Club in Jordan.
New Prague wrapped up the league title by beating runner-up Red Wing 335-340. Northfield finished third at 355, followed by Chaska 366, Chanhassen 373, Shakopee 382, Holy Angels 440 and Farmington 441.
"The girls gutted things out on a very difficult course," Carpentier said. "They did a fine job in finishing seventh this year which is one place better than last year.
"I am very proud of Mia Johnston, our low scorer today, and I know she can be a very successful golfer after she plays a lot of golf this summer. The same goes for our other young girls."
Johnston posted the low Farmington round at the conference finale with 106. Terra Klima shot 109, Brianna Swenson 112, Alexis House 114 and Alexis Preese 114. Megan Elliot started the round but withdrew after nine holes because of illness.
The Tigers have one more meet on their schedule, the Section 1AAA Championships slated for June 2 and June 6 at Cannon Falls Golf Club.
