Seminole Women’s Golf Starts Off Tourney In Chapel Hill

Oct. 7, 2000

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Senior Louise Wright shot a stellar six-over
par 78 to lead the Florida State women’s golf team to a team score of 321
in the first round of the Franklin Street Trust/Tar Heel Invitational at
the Finley Golf Course. Wright is only eight strokes behind the first
round leader, Jennifer Perri of Furman. Perri leads the individual
competition with a two-under par 70 on the 6,181 yard course.

Wright enjoyed a strong day with a 40 on the front nine and a 38
after the turn. Wright’s 78 gives her seven scores in the 70’s in nine
rounds during the current fall season. She leads the team with a 77.44
stroke average.

Sophomore Alison Zimmer (eight-over par 80), freshman Alison Curdt
(nine-over par 81), sophomore Kristin Tamulis (10-over par 82) and junior
Kelley Henderson (12-over par 84) are all within six strokes of each other
and enter Saturday’s second round in striking distance of the individual
leaders.

Zimmer’s 80 marked the fourth time in nine rounds this fall that
she has scored 80 or below for a single round. Her best single-round score
of 79 came during the Auburn Tiger Invitational and last week’s ACC/SEC
Challenge. Curdt’s 81 is tied for her second-lowest score of the fall
while Tamulis failed to break 80 for only the third time in nine rounds.
Henderson is competing for the first time as a Seminole after transferring
to Florida State this year.

Second round play begins with a modified shotgun start at 9:30
Saturday morning.
