OPELIKA, Ala. –
Senior Carrie Sordel earned All-Region Honors while senior Alison Curdt and sophomore Caroline Larsson earned Academic All-America honors from the National Golf Coaches Association at its annual awards dinner held in conjunction the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships. All three Seminoles were feted the night before they finish play in the national championship being held here at Grand National Golf Course.
Sordel earned All-South region honors for her ninth place finish at the NCAA East Regional Championship at the Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort in Howey-In-The-Hills, Fla. She led the Seminoles to a fourth place finish in the event which qualified the Seminoles for the NCAA Championship for the second consecutive season. Sordel carded a two under par 70 in the second round of the event and finished with a 54-hole total of 222. Her single-round score of 70 established a career-best while her 222 tournament score tied her career-best. The tied for ninth place finish was the fourth top-10 finish of her career.
Curdt earned Academic All-America honors for the third time in her career. The senior with a double major in psychology and professional golf management earned the honor as a sophomore, junior and senior (freshman were ineligible for the honor 2001). Curdt has already finished her academic requirements for her psychology degree and is only one semester shy of earning her PGM degree. This summer, she will serve a golf internship at the Mission Inn.
Larsson, a psychology major, earned the academic honor for a second consecutive season. After two full years as a student at Florida State Larsson has never received any grade less than an A- (and she has only ever received two of those grades).
To earn All-America mention from the NGCA players must possess at least a 3.5 grade point average for their academic career and be a significant contributor to the team for the season.
The Seminoles are scheduled to wrap up play in the national championship Saturday and are playing for the first top-10 finish in school history since winning the A.I.A.W. National Championship in 1981.
