Farmington scored 25.5 points and finished 10th among 18 teams at the All-American Indoor Invitational held last Saturday at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

"We had a decent day against some very good competition," coach Tom Hart said.

East Ridge outscored runner-up Anoka 88-73.5 to capture the team title at Farmington's only scored indoor meet of the season.

The best Tiger finish came in the 4x800 relay where the team of Emily Schaffer, Morgan Mach, Sofia Chadwick and Alicia Hett finished third.

Isabelle Ferm had the top Tiger individual finish, a fourth place effort in the long jump. Seventh-grader Lauren Peterson took fifth in the 3200-meter run, setting a new school indoor record in the process.

Destiny Schmitz placed in two jumping events, taking sixth in the triple jump and tying for seventh in the high jump.

The 4x400relay quartet of Hett, Megan Graham, Shannon McKnight and Victoria Almquist placed sixth and the 4x200 foursome of Ferm, Emma Record, Amanda Flanscha and Racquel Beckett ranked seventh.

Graham earned seventh place points in the 400-meter run and Ferm and Aly Grebner placed ninth respectively in the triple jump and shot put.
