Girls golf: Swenson led Farmington girls at last two meets

For the Farmington girls golf team, just getting on the course this spring has been something of a victory.

The Tigers have competed in just three meets so far in a season filled with cancellations and adjusted schedules, and while they have not yet been in contention for any titles, coach Jon Stock is happy with what he has seen.

"This has been a terrible spring season as far as the weather is concerned," Stock said. "Although, our lady Tiger golfers are doing well."

Farmington shot a 487 to finish eighth out of eight teams May 6 at Northfield Golf Club, but improved by 40 strokes as a team the next day at Stonebrooke to move up to seventh.

Brianna Swenson led the way at both meets for the Tigers, finishing with a 110 May 6 and a 104 May 7. Sidney Comes improved from 119 to 110, Kaitlin Jokinen improved from 135 to 109 and Brooke McConnell improved from 123 to 121 to provide the final counting score for the Tigers. Jessica Singewald also showed good improvement for the Tigers, going from 139 to 118.

"We hope to continue to improve through the next few weeks," Stock said.

New Prague won both of the season's first two meets, shooting 332 at Northfield and 323 at Stonebrooke.

Results from Monday's meet were not available in time for this issue.
