April 20, 2003




CLEMMONS, N.C. –
Senior All-America and All-ACC candidate Kristin Tamulis shot a school-record and career-low six-under par 65 in the final round and finished in a tie for fourth place in the individual standings at the 15th Annual Atlantic Coast Conference Championship at Salem Glen Country Club. Tamulis’ record-setting day helped the Seminoles shoot a season-low 286 and finish in fifth in the team standings as competition in the 54-hole event finished Sunday.


Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) earned her third consecutive top-five ACC Championship finish. She finished fourth in 2002 and tied for third in 2001. Tamulis’ previous career-low score of 68 came during the third round of the Landfall Tradition during the fall of 2001. After shooting seven-over par 78 in the first round of the event, Tamulis improved her individual standing by 10 positions over the final 36 holes.


Junior Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) earned her second consecutive top-15 individual finish as she carded a 75 in the final round and finished in a tie for 15th place. The finish was Curdt’s best ACC finish in three ACC Championships. Her previous best ACC finish was 20th in 2001.


Junior Carrie Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) recovered from a first round 86 to earn her second consecutive ACC Championship top-20 finish. She carded three-over par scores of 74 during the second and third rounds and finished in a tie for 19th-place.


Freshman Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) and junior Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) finished in a tie for 21st-place in the individual standings. Larsson carded a career-low 72 in the third round while Quinney shot a personal tournament low 76 in the final round.


No. 1 ranked Duke won its eighth straight title after shooting a final round seven-under par total of 277. The Blue Devils finished at 877 for the event. Wake Forest finished second with an 893 total, followed by North Carolina in third with 903. North Carolina’s Meaghan Francella fired her second straight round of two-under par 69 to win the individual title by one stroke over Duke’s Liz Janangelo and Wake Forest’s Nuria Clau. Francella finished at 215, two-over par.


Florida State now awaits the word from the NCAA Championships selection committee as to if they will earn their third consecutive regional bid. That announcement will be made April 28.
