April 19, 2007

TALLAHASSE, Fla. –
The Florida State women’s golf team, fresh off its third-place finish in last weekend’s ACC Championship, is ranked 25th in latest national Golf World/NGCA Division I Coaches’ Poll. The Seminoles are ranked for the third consecutive poll this season with the poll being published every two weeks by Golf World – one of the leading trade publications covering the sport of golf.

Following its ACC finish in Charlotte, Florida State now has four top-10 finishes this season. The Seminoles earned the team championship at the Florida State-hosted Chrysler Challenge in February and have earned a pair of third-place finishes at both the Lady Gator Invitational and the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic.

The Seminoles are led by sophomore All-America Caroline Westrup, who has earned four top-10 individual finishes this season. Westrup finished in second place in the individual standings at the conference championship to tie the school record for highest individual finish in the ACC Championship. She leads the Seminoles in every statistical category and has a career-best 72.78 stroke average heading in the postseason.

The Seminoles are awaiting word on participating in the NCAA Regional Championship for the 14th time in the last 17 seasons. The field for the regionals will be announced on April 30.

Despite winning its 12th consecutive ACC title last weekend, Duke dropped from its No. 1 national ranking with Arizona State taking over the lead. Georgia (third), Auburn (fourth) and Pepperdine (fifth) round out the top five with the Seminoles’ ACC rivals North Carolina (17th), Wake Forest (20th) and Virginia (21st) also appearing in this week’s poll.
