Tamulis And Sordel Boost Florida State To Ninth Place Finish At Lady Gamecock Women’s Golf Classic

March 17, 2002

Florida State junior Kristin Tamulis finished in seventh place and sophomore Carrie Sordel finished in eighth place to lead the Seminole women’s golf team to a ninth place finish at the Lady Gamecock Classic at the University Club. Tamulis fired an even-par 72 and Sordel carded a career-low tying 71 to post her second consecutive top-10 individual finish as competition in the 54-hole event concluded Sunday.

Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) tied her career-best with a 221 three-round total in earning her top individual finish of the spring 2002 season. Her even par score of 72 marked the third time during her career she had earned an even par or lower score in a single round. Tamulis’ seventh place finish was her third top-10 placing of her career and best since finishing third at the 2001 ACC championship tournament.

Sordel’s (Windermere, Fla.) third round score of 71 was the best of the 85 competitors over the final 18 holes of the event. It also tied her career-best round that she shot Feb. 24 during the final round of the Lady Gator Invitational. Sordel has now shot 73 or better in three of her last four rounds. She completed the first round of the tournament in a tied for 46th-place, moved into a tie for 22nd-place after round two and improved 13 more positions Sunday to finish in a tie for eighth place.

Sophomore Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.), sophomore Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) and senior Alison Zimmer (Tallahassee, Fla.) also competed for Florida State in the event.

Third ranked Duke won the event for the fifth consecutive season. The Blue Devils finished with a tournament record score of 10-over par 874. Duke’s Niloufar Aazam-Zanganeh won the individual title in a one-hole playoff. She defeated South Carolina’s Kristy McPherson in a play-off on the par 5, 441-yard 18th hole. Aazam-Zanganeh won the event as she pared the hole and McPherson picked up her ball after chipping to within 20 feet of the hole on her fifth shot.

The Seminoles continue their spring schedule as they travel to UNCW/Lady Seahawk Invitational March 25-26.
