The Tigers continued to make progress to their season goal Tuesday night in a 145.20-136.475 Missota Conference dual meet loss at New Prague.

"All in all, it was a good meet," Farmington coach Lynn Bauman said. "We definitely are making our masterpiece. We just need a few more finishing touches. I believe our team has the ability to hit the 140 mark by the end of the season."

Farmington performers turned in four third place efforts at the meet with Amanda Davenport accounting for two of them, on the uneven bars and in all-around. Kathryn Beckett placed third on floor exercise and Tahra Eckert ranked third in vault.

Davenport took fourth on beam and and Eckert placed fourth in the all-around competition. The Tigers placed fifth in three other events: Davenport in vault and floor exercise and Rachel Kiminski on the balance beam.

New Prague also won the junior varsity meet 131.45-122.65. Sidney Comes won the all-around competition and Gina Mercurio was second in vault and floor exercise. 

The Tigers travel to Chanhassen Friday night to take on Chaska-Chanhassen in another Missota Conference dual meet.
