FLORIDA STATE EARNS TOP-10 TEAM FINISH AT LADY TAR HEEL WOMEN’S GOLF INVITATIONAL

Oct. 9, 2005


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Buoyed by a pair of top-20 individual finishes by sophomore Whitney Brummett and senior Caroline Larsson, the Florida State women’s golf team finished in a tie for ninth place in the team standings at the Lady Tar Heel Invitational at Finely Golf Course. It marked the fourth time in the last ten events that at least two Florida State players had finished in the top 20 in the individual standings and the sixth time in the last two years that the Seminoles had finished in the top 10 in the team standings of a tournament.

No. 1 ranked Duke won its ninth consecutive Lady Tar Heel Invitational title as the Blue Devils outdistanced second-place Auburn by 21 strokes. Duke was led by four players – Anna Grzebien, Amanda Blumenhurst, Liz Janangelo and Jennie Lee – who all finished within the top seven in the individual standings. Ashley Knoll of Texas A&M held onto the individual lead during the final two rounds and won individual medalist honors with a 10-under par score of 206.

Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) led the Seminoles throughout the event and finished with three single round scores of 75 or better. She carded a one-over par 73 in the first round and finished with identical scores of 75 in the second and third rounds. Brummett’s 223 total allowed her to earn her third career top-25 finish.

Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) also performed well during the event and finished with a 225 total – good for the 11th top 20 individual finish of her career. She played her best golf of the tournament in the second round as she carded a season’s-best one over par score of 73.

Junior Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) recovered from a tough first round outing to finish six-over par during the final 36 holes of the tournament. She carded an even par 72 in the second round. Sophomore Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) and junior Kayla Shaul (Cumming, Ga.) also competed in the event for the Seminoles.

The Seminoles continue their fall schedule as they play host to the Seminole Classic at the Raven Course at the Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort Oct. 28-30 in Destin, Fla.
