Girls golf: Swenson shoots 101 to pace FHS

The Farmington girls golf team finished last in the first Missota Conference meet of the season, but coach Jon Stock didn't find a lot of reason to complain.

The Tiger girls' 455-stroke total was a 90-shot improvement from last week's season-opening meet at Faribault.

Brianna Swenson was once again the top scorer for the Tigers, shooting a 101 that was nine strokes better than her total last week. Amanda Steinkeouway was the second Tiger finisher with a 113, a 27-stroke improvement. Kaitlin Jokinen shot a 114.

The other Farmington scores were Megan Elliott with a 127, Alexis House with a 129 and Halea Wright with a 136.

"The girls showed a lot of improvement," Stock said. "We dropped 90 strokes from the team score at our last meet. It was a beautiful day, and everything went very well for us."

Red Wing shot a 333 to lead the way in the meet, played Monday at Fountain Valley Golf Course. New Prague was second with a 335.

Chanhassen's Brenna Lervick had the meet's best score with a 72.
