Boys golf: Holmstrom shoots 73 to lead Tigers

For Erik Holmstrom, boring was a good thing May 7.

Holmstrom shot a 73 at Southern Hills to lead a Tiger team that finished fifth behind Lakeville South, Eagan, Lakevile North and Red Wing.

Jake Jensen shot an 80 for the Tigers, Nate Anderson had an 84 and Jake Trippel had an 85.

"We had a couple strong outings today that will hopefully be platforms to build on for our boys to take to the next conference invite," coach Jon Holmes said. "Holmstrom took second place today.... His round is best described as boring, which is always a good thing in golf. He had 16 pars and two bogies."

Farmington, which shot a 322 on the day, beat Rosemount and Bloomington Kennedy.

Holmes said the results so far have been encouraging for the remainder of the season.

"If we can keep Jake (Jensen) around that number this year, which he is fully capable of, we should have some team success," he said.
