Girls golf: Swenson cards 97 at Creek's Bend

Farmington girls golf coach Jon Stock is pretty pleased with his team's performance Monday at Creek's Bend Golf Course in New Prague.

"We had our first score under 100 for the season, so that was pretty exciting," Stock said Tuesday. "We're happy with our scores. These girls all had their personal bests that day."

The team's lowest score was a 97, brought in by Brianna Swenson. Halea Wright scored a 124, Kaitlyn Jokenin got a 125, and Jessica Singewald rounded out the scoring for the Tigers with a 127.

Stock knows the scores can still improve, but he's also already seen improvement in his team. Breaking the 100 barrier Monday was a big step, not only for Swenson, but the whole team. It's a sign this year's hard work is starting to pay off, he said.

"They're still improving and that's the important part," he said.

The Tiger girls golf team heads to Red Wing Thursday for another Missota conference meet.
