Sumner Leads Women’s Golf At The Dickson

Final Results

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (seminoles.com) – Freshman Kathleen Sumner carded a 1-under par 71 and finished in a tie for sixth place in the individual standings, and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in a tie for fifth place in the team standings as play in the rain-shortened Dickson Intercollegiate at the Woodlands Country Club came to a close.  Sumner carded her career-low score of 71 and earned her career-best finish in the Seminoles’ second event of the spring season.

Clemson, with three players in the top-six of the individual standings, won the team championship with a one round score of 283.  Sasikarn Somboonsup of Texas State won the individual championship with a 5-under par score of 67.

The event was shortened to one round after heavy rain in the area forced the cancellation of the first two rounds which were scheduled for Monday.

“Golf is a game of patience and perseverance,” said head coach Amy Bond.  “This week was a test of it all for our team.  Having the practice round and the 36-hole day cancelled due to heavy rain was a bit of a challenge as today turned into a shootout.  18 holes of winner take all.  We got off to a decent start and led early, but we just didn’t finish very well.  The conditions challenged us in the end, and we still have some more work to do.”

Sumner (Charleston, S.C.) played the best round of her Seminole career as she carded three birdies and 13 holes scored at par.  Her score in Tuesday’s round was better by one stroke than her previous career best – a 72 in the first round of the Ocean Course Invitational which was her very first collegiate round.

“I hit my irons well and my putter was working for me today,” said Sumner.  “Playing well in this event is definitely a confidence booster.  I know I can play well; I just have to continue to believe in myself.”

Bond was impressed by Sumner’s performance.

“Kathleen played a great round of golf from start to finish,” said Bond.  “She has worked extremely hard and finally has an under par number to show for her work.”

Senior Kim Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) finished tied for the team lead with four birdies as she carded an even par score of 72.  She finished in a tie for 14th place in the individual standings.  Her 14th place finish marked the 13th time in her Florida State career that she has earned a top 15 individual finish.

Kim Metraux was tied with her sister, Morgane Metraux, with four birdies each.  Morgane Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) finished in a tie for 38th place in the individual standings with a 3-over par score of 75.  Senior Kayla Jones (Milton, Ga.) also finished in a tie for 38th place in the individual standings with a score of 75.

Florida State continues its season schedule at the Kim Evans Derby Experience hosted by Auburn University March 18-20.  The event at the Auburn University Golf Course is annually considered to be one of the top regular season events during the spring season.

“We will get back to work and get ready for Auburn in just two weeks,” said Bond.

Florida State plays host to the NCAA Tallahassee Regional Championship May 7-9 at the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course.  The NCAA Tallahassee Regional is one of four regional championship sites across the country and allows the Seminoles to showcase not only their nationally ranked program, but its home course and the city of Tallahassee to many of the nation’s top women’s golfers.
