Opelika, Ala. –
Senior Alison Curdt continues to lead the Florida State women’s golf team and has a 148 total for the first 36 holes played at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship at Grand National Golf Course. The Seminoles finished with a 301 team total – identical to their first round score – and have a 602 total heading into Thursday’s third round.
The Seminoles played in the morning wave and the individual and team placements will not be available until the conclusion of the round which will come at approximately 9 p.m. EDT. Florida State was in eighth place in the team standings and Curdt was in a tie for second place in the individual standings after the first 18 holes.
“We had a nice round for the second consecutive day but we need to play better to continue to be in the hunt for a strong finish,” said Head Coach Debbie Dillman. “We are hoping to be able to play with the leaders in the afternoon in the third round. If we can accomplish that goal, our players will learn a lot about themselves and will continue to develop as golfers.”
Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) played well over the 18 hole course for the second consecutive day. She birdied 11 of the day’s 18 holes and was over par on only one hole over the back nine. Curdt finished the day at even par over her final 10 holes and 12 of the last 14 she played on the day. Her two-day total of 148 the third best 36-hole total of her career.
Senior Carrie Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) enjoyed the best day of the five Seminoles competing in the event as she carded a two-over par 74. Sordel played a strong round with six birdies and six holes of even par. Sordel had now carded two of her last four single-round scores at 74 or better.
Sophomore Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) was one of two Seminoles who improved their single round score from day one to day two as she turned in a four-over par 76. She, too enjoyed an outstanding day with 15 even par holes and only three holes over par. Larsson’s 36-hole total of 154 is eight strokes better than her total after the second round of the 2003 NCAA Championship.
Senior Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) carded her second consecutive round of 77 and has a 154 total of the first two days of the event. Quinney is 10 strokes ahead of her two-day total at the NCAA Championships from a season ago.
