May 11, 2002




EAST LANSING, Mich. –
The Florida State University women’s golf team finished in 17th place in the NCAA Central Regional at Forest Akers West Golf Course on the campus of Michigan State University as play in the event was completed Saturday. The Seminoles’ top player – junior Kristin Tamulis – finished in a tie for 34th place in the individual standings. Both Florida State as a team and Tamulis as an individual did not qualify to advance to next week’s NCAA Championship tournament in Auburn, Wash.


All five Seminoles played their best golf of the tournament as was displayed by their scores. Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) shot a third round score of 76 – five strokes better than her second round score; senior Alison Zimmer (Tallahassee, Fla.) shot a final round score of 79 – four strokes better than her second round score; sophomore Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) shot a third round score of 80 – five strokes less than her first round score; sophomore Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) shot a third round score of 79 – nine strokes under her first round score and sophomore Carrie Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) shot a final round 83 – a drop of seven strokes from her first round score.


Tamulis played the best round of the event for the Seminoles as she finished the third round with a four-over par 76. She played the back nine of the course in a one-under par score of 35 as she either birdied or pared the final eight holes of the round.


Zimmer and Curdt also played well for the Seminoles with each carding identical scores of seven-over par 79. For Zimmer it marked the second 79 of the tournament for the senior who closed out her career. Curdt improved her scores in each of the three rounds of the tournament as did Sordel who shot a tournament best 83 in the final round.


Tulsa, Ohio State, Texas, Purdue, Oklahoma State, Michigan and Michigan State finished in team positions one through eight and will advance to the NCAA Championship tournament.
