Girls Golf: Tigers seventh in Missota

Brooke McConnell
Farmington finished seventh in the fifth and final Missota Conference meet of the season played Monday at the Chaska Town Course.

The seventh place finish locked up the seventh spot in the final league rankings for the Tigers, one rung higher on the league ladder than the finished last spring.

"We lucked out and had intermittently good weather," coach Jon Stock said. "Now that we have the conference behind us we can begin working on our skills for the sections."

New Prague sewed up the 2013 conference title with a 338-341 win over runner-up Red Wing. Chaska ranked third at 348, followed by Northfield 366, Chanhassen 368, Shakopee 385, Farmington 459 and Holy Angels 486.

As she has all spring, Brianna Swenson topped the Tiger score card with a round of 111, two shots better than Brooke McConnell who turned in her best round of the spring with a 113.

Sidney Comes finished at 116, Kaitlin Jokinen 119, Alexis House 121 and Halea Wright 122.

The Tigers open post-season play next Thursday, May 30, at the Cannon Golf Club in Cannon Falls.
