Steichen, Matt, Sports Editor For Farmington and Rosemount High School

The Farmington boys golf team fielded its full varsity lineup for the first time at last Thursday’s South Suburban Conference meet at Emerald Greens and finished fifth out of 10 teams.

The Tigers shot 319, nine off the pace of fourth-place Lakeville North and 11 behind Eastview and Eagan. Lakeville South won with a 294.

Sam Newcomb led a balanced Tiger scoring effort with a round of 78. Isaac Ferm and Erik Holmstrom followed with matching rounds of 80 and Lucas Berg and Darby Grengs each shot 81s. Jake Jensen added an 85 in his return from knee surgery.

The Tigers opened last week by coming in fifth out of 24 teams in a tournament at Legacy Resort in Brainerd. Holmstrom fired a 76 on day two of the tournament to place ninth and Newcomb closed out the tournament with a 78 on Tuesday.

Berg added an 83 on Day 2 and Grengs carded an 84.

The Tigers and Irish both play tomorrow at Southern Hills Golf Course. The next South Suburban Conference meet is Tuesday at Heritage Links in Lakeville.
