GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida State junior Hannah Thomson sits in third place after shooting one-over par 141 after her first two rounds to pace the Seminoles on the first day of the SunTrust Gator Women’s Invite Sunday at Mark Bostick Golf Course at the University of Florida. The Seminoles are second as a team after shooting 294 and 295 in each of their first two rounds.

Florida leads the field at 12-over par for the tournament after shooting 280 in the first round before posting a 292 in the second round. Florida State (589), Arkansas (594), Iowa State (596), Coastal Carolina (596) and Colorado finish out the top six.

“We played pretty well today considering it was windy and it rained on and off during the round,” said Head Coach Amy Bond. “The girls hit some really good shots today and did a good job of maneuvering around the course.”

Thomson’s first round saw the junior shoot one-under par 69. She collected three birdies in her first 18 holes shooting 35 on the front nine and a 34 on the back nine holes. In the second round of the day, Thomson carded a two-over par 72 but birdied twice giving her five birdies on the day. She sits just three strokes out of first place going into Monday’s final round.

Junior Maria Salinas shot five-over par 145 in the first two rounds tying her for 11th heading into the final round. Salinas bettered her score as the day went on. After shooting three-over par 73 with one birdie in the first round, she posted a two-over par 72 in round two. She was even-par 35 on the back nine with a pair of birdies.

Sophomore Jessica Negron ties for 28th after her first two rounds. She carded a six-over par 76 and five-over par 75 putting her 11-over for the tournament.

Seniors Andrea Kaelin and Macarena Silva both sit 13-over par 153 and in a tie for 40th. Kaelin’s strong second round saw her shoot five-over par 75. She was eight-over par 78 after her first round. Silva carded a seven-over par 77 in round one and six-over par 76 in her second round.

“We have put ourselves in a position to contend tomorrow,” said Bond. “We are really close to putting it all together and hopefully tomorrow will be the day.”
The final round of the event begins Monday morning.
