Junior Kristina Prestipino led three members of the Florida State women’s golf team in the top 15 of the individual standings and the Seminoles finished in third place at the Lady Seminole Invitational at the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course. Prestipino was one of three Seminoles who finished the two-day event in the top 15 and one of five Florida State players who finished in the top 20 in the individual standings.

Barry University of Miami Shores, Fla., won the team title with a 637 total for the two day event. Barry finished seven strokes ahead of Florida Golf Coast University and 21 strokes ahead of Florida State. Flagler College finished fourth with a team score of 744. Freshman Heather Hagerman of Florida Golf Coast earned medalist honors with a seven-over par total of 153.

Prestipino led the way with her fifth place finish as she carded the fourth lowest 36-total of any participant (161). She tied for third in scoring on par threes (+3 for the tournament) and managed 19 pars on the course’s lengthy par five layout. Prestipino and teammate Tyler Johnson finished tied for the team’s best 18-hole score when they both shot seven-over par scores of 80 in the first round.

Freshman Ashley Kemp also put together an impressive performance, finishing in ninth place earning the first top-10 finish of her career. The Tampa, Fla. native finished with a 36-hole score of 164 and ranked third among entrants with her score on par fives firing as she finished even on the extended holes.

Other Seminoles in finishing the top 20 included the before-mentioned Johnson, sophomore Michelle Steakin (12th) and junior Jennifer Harvey who finished tied with freshman Kim Haskins for 19th.
