Boys Golf: Still in the hunt for fourth

Jake Jensen shot a two-over-par 73
The Tigers remained squarely in the hunt for a first division finish in the final Missota Conference standings with a fifth place effort at the fourth of five league meets played Friday at Southern Hills.

Chanhassen won the tournament with a meet low total of 296 strokes. New Prague finished six strokes back at 302, followed by Chaska 303, Shakopee 309, Farmington 311, Red Wing 312, Holy Angels 322 and Northfield 331.

"The scores were low today with the wind down," coach Jon Holmes said. "The boys were a tad disappointed they didn't finish in the top three since to many of them Southern is their personal home course, but all in all, it was a fun day. 

"The head-to-head match between us and Shakopee stayed hot and will get even hotter on Monday with only one point separating us."

Jake Jensen turned in his third top five performance in four meets with a team low round of 73. Sam Newcomb had a tough first hole but rallied to break 80, finishing at 78.

Lucas Berg shot 79, Darby Grengs 81, Tyler VanWinkle 82 and Issac Ferm 89 to round out the Farmington scoring.

 The fifth and final conference meet takes place Monday at Stonebrooke Golf Course in Shakopee.
