Seminoles In Second Place At Florida State Match-Up

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – The Florida State women’s golf team is in second place in the team standings and sophomore Kim Metraux is in a tie for fourth place in the individual standings after the second round of the Florida State Match-Up at the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course and Club.  The Seminoles are only four strokes behind South Carolina in the team standings while Metraux is only three strokes behind Maddie Szeryk of Texas A&M who holds the individual lead after 36 holes.

South Carolina moved into first place in the team standings as it carded the best team round of the second round and the first sub-par team round of the tournament.  The Gamecocks entered the round tied for second behind Florida State and tied with SMU and find themselves four strokes ahead of now second placed Florida State and 15 strokes ahead of SMU.  The Mustangs are tied for fourth in the team standings with one round remaining to be played.

Szeryk is in first place in the individual standings with a two-day total of 141.  She has carded scores of 69 and 72 and is 3 under par over the course of the first two days of play.  Szeryk begins play in the final round of the event looking to become the second consecutive Texas A&M player to win the individual championship in this event; teammate Bianca Fabrizio earned medalist honors in 2015.  Fabrizio is currently tied for 45th in the individual standings with a two round total of 156.

Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) has carded back to back scores of 72 and has an even par total of 144 entering the final round of play.  Only three strokes behind the lead of Szeryk, Metraux is playing for her fourth career top 10 finish and first career collegiate victory.  Metraux’s best finish during her first two seasons as a Seminole came during the fall 2005 Jacksonville Classic as she earned a second place finish.

“Overall, I am quite happy with my game,” said Metraux.  “I started my first round badly and managed to get back by holing some good putts.  It was the opposite today as my long game was a lot better but not as many putts fell.  I appreciate very much the opportunity to play at home and in front of my family and people I know and I am looking forward to the final day of play.”

Metraux leads four Seminoles in the top 15 of the individual standings.  Also in the top 15 of the individual standings are juniors Lydia Gumm (11th, 147 total) and Matilda Castren (tied for 12th, 148) along with sophomore Kayla Jones (tied for 12th, 148).  Gumm is looking for her second consecutive top 10 finish after placing in a tie for first place at the spring season opening Florida Challenge.

Florida State and Texas A&M are in first place in the special match-up portion of the event.  The Seminoles and the Aggies have a three stroke lead in the match-up standings over the teams of Furman and Coastal Carolina and South Carolina and Virginia.  Florida State and Texas A&M are looking to win the match-up championship for the second consecutive season.

The third and final round of the event begins Sunday at 8:15 a.m. on holes No. 1 and 10.  Admission to the event at the Don Veller Seminole Golf Club and Course is free to all spectators.
