OPELIKA, Ala. –
The Florida State University women’s golf team is playing well as it attempts to maintain its top-10 national placing with sophomore Caroline Larsson at one-under par through seven holes and senior Carrie Sordel and freshman Jaclyn Burch at even par through six holes of the final round of the NCAA Championship at Grand National Golf Course. As a team, the Seminoles are one-over par for the day and currently in 11th place.
That is….until thunder and lightning rolled through the area and play was stopped at 2:57 CDT. All of the competitors have left the course and most are passing time the spacious clubhouse at Grand National. Officials will attempt to re-start the event this afternoon. If weather forces a postponement, the event will be completed Saturday.
Florida State is currently in 11th place at 34 strokes over par. The Seminoles trail Washington by two strokes in their attempt to gain a top-10 national finish for the first time since winning the A.I.A.W National Championship in 1981. The Huskies, who played in the morning wave, shot a four-under par team score of 284 and moved up from a tie for 14th place into 10th place. Florida State is also chasing Arizona State in ninth place. The Sun Devils are currently idle at 30 strokes over par.
