GAINESVILLE, Fla. –
Florida State freshman Whitney Brummett carded a five-over par 75 and is in a tie for 13th place in the individual standings to lead the Seminole women’s golf team after the first round of the 33rd annual Lady Gator Invitational at the University of Florida Golf Course. The Seminoles are in 14th in the team standings with 36 of the 54 holes in the three-day tournament still left to be played. The event is the first of the spring season for the Seminoles.

Wake Forest, ranked No. 18 nationally, holds the first round team lead after finishing with a four-player total of 14-over par 294. The Demon Deacons are two strokes ahead of No. 1 ranked Duke and six-strokes ahead of No. 22 ranked Florida. The Demon Deacons are paced by Christine Hallstrom and Ashley Hoagland who are tied for first in the team standings with identical scores of one-over par 71.

Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) led the Seminoles with four birdies during the first round. She was the Seminoles’ top finisher in two of the team’s four events during the fall as she finished second on the team with a 75.50 strokes per round average.

Sophomore Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) is the second ranking Seminole and is in a tie for 23rd place in the individual standings. She carded a six-over par 76 and is only two strokes from joining the top-10 of the individual standings. Burch led the Seminoles with a career-low 75.33 stroke average during the fall season.
