Seminole Women’s Golf Team Earns Highest Finish In Nearly Three Years At Lady Seahawk Invitational

March 26, 2002

The Florida State University women’s golf team finished in a tie for first place in the team standings but lost out on a tie-breaker ruling to NC State and were awarded second place at the Lady Seahawk Invitational at the River Landing Golf Course. The Seminoles and Wolfpack finished in a tie with 904 strokes through the three rounds of play, but NC State was awarded the championship in a card playoff that calculated the scores of each of the teams’ five golfers. NC State won the card playoff by a score of 1,140 – 1,144.

The Seminoles’ finish marked their highest since Sept. 24-26, 1999 when the team finished second at the Lady Seminole Invitational at Seminole Golf Course.

Seminole junior Kristin Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) finished in fifth place in the team standings with personal best three-round score of 220. She shot even par in two of the three rounds during the tournament and finished only two strokes out of the top individual spot. It marked the second consecutive tournament she had earned a top 10 individual finish. Tamulis finished seventh at last week’s Lady Gamecock Classic.

Senior Alison Zimmer (Tallahassee, Fla.) earned her top career finish as she completed the tournament in a tie for 15th-place in the individual standings. She shot a three-over par 75 in the third round and finished with a tournament total of 228. Her three-round total is the second best of her career and best since carding a 226 during the 1999 Lady Paladin Invitational.

Sophomore Carrie Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) finished a tie for 23rd-place to mark the third time this season she had finished in the top 25 of the individual standings. Sophomore Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) finished in a tie for 37th-place to mark the third best finish of her Seminole career.

Florida State’s next tournament outing comes at the Ryder/Florida Championships at Don Shulas’ Golf Resort in Miami Lakes, Fla., March 5-7.
