HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. –
Seniors Carrie Sordel and Katie Quinney led the Florida State women’s golf team in the second round of the 2004 NCAA East Regional Championship with identical scores of 70 as the Seminoles are in seventh place at the NCAA East Regional. The Seminoles are looking to finish in the top eight of the team standings in order to qualify for the NCAA Championship tournament for the second consecutive season. Sordel and Quinney led the Seminoles as they shot a 300 team total Friday to remain in contention for a top eight finish and a spot in the NCAA Championships at Auburn University May 18-21. The Seminoles’ team round of 300 was the fourth best round of the tournament through the first round and a half of the event.


Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) played the best round of her career as she finished the second round with a two-under par 70. Starting from the 10th tee in the second round, Sordel earned five birdies and only one bogie in finishing the back nine with four-under par score of 33. She then played very consistently on the front nine finishing at even par on seven of the nine holes to total a two-over par 37 to finish the day. Combined with her four-over par 76 in the first round, Sordel has a two-over par 146 heading into Saturday’s third and final round.


Quinney, an All-ACC selection for the first time in her career this season, carded a two-under par 70 and begins play in the third round with 149 two-round total. She improved her single round score by seven strokes in the second round after carding a 79 in Thursday’s first round. Quinney utilized three birdies on the back nine and totaled a two-under par 35 before playing the front nine flawlessly and at even par. Quinney has carded three rounds of 70 this spring. Her career-best single-round score of 67 came in the second round of the ACC Championship.


Sophomore Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) finished the third round with an eight-over par 80. Also an All-ACC selection, Larsson carded one birdie and five holes of even par golf on the front nine to finish her round with a three-over par 38. She was five-over par on the back nine to begin the round and has a two-day total of 156.


Freshman Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) also played well with 11 rounds of even-par golf and finished the second round with an 80. Senior Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) played 12 of the 18 holes in the second round at par or better. Her best holes of the day came on the 10th where she carded a birdie on the par five hole. Curdt carded an 80 in the first round and an 82 in Friday’s second round.


Florida State’s tee times in the final round depend on their team finish following the completion of the second round.
