Faribault took over reign of the Big Nine Conference Monday at the girls’ golf conference meet at Northlinks Golf Course in Mankato, ending Albert Lea’s one-year residency at the top of the conference.

The Falcons shot 351 while the Tigers finished fifth with a 379.

“It would have been fun for us to surprise some people and play a great round,” said Albert Lea head coach Shawn Riebe.
