"The eighth place finish was one of our best in a long time," Tiger coach Jon Stock said, "and Brianna (Swenson) had her best round ever."
Swenson who lowered her personal best-ever score to 92, and teammate Sidney Comes who shot 108 will return to Cannon Falls on Monday to play in the second round of the individual competition. The top ten finishers in round one not on one of the six teams qualifying for round two advanced.
