Girls golf: Tigers cut 39 strokes in opener
The Farmington girls golf team played as if it was eager to get started when the season finally opened Monday afternoon at New Prague Golf Club.
The Tigers finished seventh out of eight teams, but cut 39 strokes off their score from last year's season opener with a total of 441 strokes.
"The good news is that we improved by 39 strokes off our first outing last year," Farmington coach Rob Carpentier said. "The younger girls are shooting lower and lower scores and starting to believe that they can be pretty good."
New Prague won the meet with a score of 333, followed by Red Wing (341), Northfield (362), Chanhassen (371), Chaska (374), Shakopee (392), Farmington (441) and Holy Angels (449).
Terra Klima and Mia Johnston led Farmington with matching 18-hole rounds of 109. No. 3 golfer Brianna Swenson was just a stroke back with a 110 and Alexis House provided the final counting score with a 113.
Annie Grengs (115) and Alexis Preese (127) also competed for the Tigers, who are back in action Monday at Dahlgreen Golf Club in Chaska.
