Girls Golf: Tigers seventh at Dakota County meet

Farmington placed seventh in an eight-team field at the annual Dakota County Championships played Friday, May 20, at Emerald Greens Golf Club in Rosemount.
Eastview won the tournament with 334 strokes, followed by, Rosemount 340, Lakeville North 362, Burnsville 364, South St. Paul 426, Simley 427, Farmington 449 and Henry Sibley, incomplete.
The good news for the Tigers was that the bottom end of lineup improved its scores. The bad news was that no individuals stood out from the pack.
"Pretty consistent stuff," coach Rob Carpentier said. "It was a good day for the girls who have been at the back of the lineup but our top three scorers need to be in the 90's or at least the low 100's."
The six Farmington players finished within a tight five-stroke band with Megan Elliott leading the way at 111. Bri Swenson shot 112, Kayla Collins, Mia Johnston and Alexis House 113 and Annie Grengs 116.
Terra Klima, one of the top two Tiger scorers all season, missed the meet with a sore back.
Carpentier hopes to have her back in the starting lineup for Monday's Missota Conference finale at Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan where he feels his team can put together a strong finish to the regular season.
"I think we may have a big day," he said.
