Freshman Brummett Leads Seminoles At Tar Heel Invitational

Oct. 9, 2004




CHAPEL HILL, N.C. –
Florida State freshman Whitney Brummett carded a career-low 72 in Saturday’s second round and moved into 13th place in the individual standings at the Tar Heel Invitational at Finely Golf Course on the campus of the University of North Carolina. Brummett and sophomore Jaclyn Burch, who is in a tie for 17th place in the individual standings heading into the third round, will attempt to become the first pair of Seminole teammates to finish in the top 20 in an event since the 2004 NCAA East Regional. Florida State is in eighth place in the team standings with one round to play.

No. 1 ranked Duke leads the team standings by 13 strokes over second-place Auburn. Blue Devils Senior Liz Janangelo leads the individual standings with a four-under par total of 140 over the first 36 holes of the event. She carded a four-under par 68 in the second round. Brittany Lang and Anna Grzebian, a pair of Duke players, are in third and fourth place respectively in the individual standings.

Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) finished with an even par 72 as she played 15 of 18 holes at par or better. She played the final seven holes of the afternoon at par to earn her career best score. Brummett’s score was two strokes better than the 74 she carded in the third round of the Cougar Fall Classic (Sept. 13-14) and moved her into 13th place in the individual standings. She looks certain to earn her career best finish this weekend after finishing in a tie for 54th place at the Cougar Fall Classic.

Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) has put herself in position to earn her second career top-20 finish after carding a 77 in the second round. Combined with her score of 74 in the first round, Burch has a 36-hole total of 151. After 36 holes, she is one stroke ahead of the pace of her three-round career-best tournament score of 228 which she established at the Cougar Fall Classic.

Junior Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) is in a tie for 27th place after firing a 79 in the second round for a 155 total. She played 12 of her 18 holes in the second round at even par. Freshman Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) and junior Kristin Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) are also competing for the Seminoles.

The final round of the event, a shotgun start, begins at 9:15 Sunday.
