Sept. 12, 2005

Junior Jaclyn Burch shot a one-over par 73 and finished in a tie for 30th place in the individual standings to lead the Florida State women’s golf team to a 14th place finish in the team standings at the third annual Cougar Fall Classic at Yeamans Hall Country Club. Burch shot a one-over par total of 145 in the final two rounds and finished only six strokes from earning the second top-10 individual finish of her Seminole career.

Tennessee carded a final round team score of 289 and held off second place Georgia en route the team championship as play in the 54-hole event concluded Monday. The Lady Vols finished with a three round tournament-record total of 870, two strokes better than Georgia. Marci Turner of Tennessee won individual medalist honors with a three round record-tying total of 212.

Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) led the Seminoles with a nine-over par total of 225 for the three-round event. After carding an 80 in the first round, she settled in and carded an even-par 72 in the second round and finished play with a one-over par 73. With all of her scores counting towards the team total in the event, it marked the 49th consecutive round in 17 consecutive tournaments that she has counted her scores toward the team score.

Junior Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) turned in the second best round of the day for the Seminoles as she carded a four-over par 76. Larsson, too, improved her scored as she was seven over par for the final two rounds after finishing at seven-over par in the first round.

Sophomore Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C) finished with a 232 individual total and in a tie for 56th place in the individual standings. She began the event well as she carded a near-career best one-over par 73. She was followed by sophomore Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) who finished with a 235 total for the three-round event.

Freshman Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) played well in her first collegiate tournament after carding an 81 in the second round. She competed against her sister, Sarah Kate of Ole Miss, for the first time on the collegiate level. Sarah Kate won the individual battle as she finished in a tie for 25th place in the individual standings but Lauren’s Seminoles defeated Sarah Kate’s Ole Miss team by three strokes.

The Seminoles continue their fall schedule at the Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C. on Oct. 7-9.
