Girls Golf: Tigers finally hit the links

Brianna Swenson
After three-plus weeks of mostly indoor drills the Tigers finally got to take some outdoor swings Friday at the Faribault Invitational played at the Faribault Golf Club.

A skeleton squad of five golfers made the trip south and finished 10th in a quality eleven-team field.

Defending Missota Conference champion New Prague won the meet with a low team total of 337 strokes, 35 fewer than runner-up BenildeSt. Margaret's.

Owatonna took third place with 389, followed by Prior Lake 398, St. Croix Lutheran 413, Chanhassen 415, Lakeville South 447, Faribault 454, Kasson-Mantorville 455, Farmington 489 and Rochester Century 490.

Senior Brianna Swenson led the Farmington effort with a round of 99. Emma Sullivan finished at 126, followed by Sidney Comes 128, Abby Monroe 136 and Amanda Hansmann 136.

"It was a beautiful day for golf," Tiger coach Jon Stock said. "Scores were a bit higher than normal, but not too bad for only having two outdoor practices before hand."

The Tigers next tee it up Wednesday, April 23, when they travel to Stonebrooke Golf Club in Shakopee for the first Missota Conference meet of the season.
