Florida State Women’s Golf Team In Fifth Place At ACC Championship

April 18, 2003




CLEMMONS, N.C. –
The 22nd ranked Florida State University women’s golf team is in fifth place and senior All-America and All-ACC candidate Kristin Tamulis is in a tie for seventh place after the first round of the 15th annual Atlantic Coast Conference women’s golf championship at the Salem Glen Country Club. The six teams in the event played the first round in driving rain, gusting wind and temperatures in the low 40’s.


Despite posting a season-high 325-team score in the foul weather, the Florida State is well within range of making a run at the team championship. The Seminoles are within 10 strokes of second place NC State and 15 strokes of Duke, the current leader. Tamulis is also within striking range of the leaders. Her seven-over par score of 78 has her only four stokes behind the current medalist Courtney Pomeranz of NC State.


Tamulis (Naples, Fla.), who has finished in the top four of both of the last two ACC Tournaments, is tied for seventh after carding a 78. She is seven spots higher this year than she was after the first round of the conference tournament last year when she was in a tie for 14th-place after the first 18 holes. Tamulis finished in a tie for third and earned All-ACC honors for the second consecutive season in 2002.


Junior Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) is tied with Tamulis after carding an identical six-over par 78. Curdt is looking for the first top-10 finish in three ACC Championship tournaments. Curdt finished 20th as a freshman and tied for 23rd as a sophomore in her first two ACC Championships.


Junior Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) is in 21st-place after carding an 83 while junior Carrie Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) is tied for 23rd with a first round 86. Freshman Caroline Larsson (Dendyard, Sweden), who is playing in her first ACC Championship, carded an 89.


The second round of the three round event begins Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. More rain is predicted but temperatures are forecasted to be in the 60s and 70s.
