Girls Golf: Swenson continues to lead Tigers

Brianna Swenson low Tiger scorer
Brianna Swenson held on to her spot as the low Tiger scorer and Farmington held onto it seventh place ranking in the fourth of five Missota Conference meets played Wednesday at Heritage Links Golf Club in Lakeville.

New Prague edged Chaska 332-33 for the top spot in the meet. Red Wing ranked third at 337, followed by Chanhassen 351, Northfield 368, Shakopee 370, Farmington 463 and Holy Angels 483.

Kenzie Neisen of New Prague won medalist honors with a three-under par round of 69.

"We were missing a couple of our varsity golfers, but we came very close to our team score from Monday," coach Jon Stock said.

"Heritage is a tough course, but overall the girls played well. They have learned a lot. Next week we will have only one meet, so we will get a lot of time to work on skills before sections."

Swenson finished at 103 over the challenging Heritage Links course, four shots in front of teammate Sidney Comes.  Halea Wright shot 114, Brooke McConnell 119, Jessica Singewald 127 and Abby Monroe 127.

Next Monday the Tigers will compete in the final conference meet of the season at the Chaska Towne Course.

The opening round of Section 1AA play takes place the following Thursday at the Cannon Golf Club in Cannon Falls.
