Feb. 19, 2001




JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –
Florida State’s Rick Westbrook shot a career-low 69 in the first round and a one-over par 73 in the second round to finish with a two-round total of two-under par 142 and is in a tie for tenth place after the first day of competition at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championship at the Sawgrass Country Club. Westbrook’s first round total was tied for the eighth best first round score among the 75 golfers playing in the event.


Westbrook, who is among five players tied for tenth place, will begin play on Tuesday only 10 strokes behind the current leader, David Bennett of the University of North Florida. Bennett is well on his way to defending his championship that he won last year with a five-under par score. He is the current leader with an eight-under par score of 136.


Westbrook (Alto, Ga.) is enjoying his first season at Florida State after transferring from Central Alabama Community College. He helped lead Central Alabama to a pair of national championships and earned All-American honors during the spring 2000 season.


Senior Kris Hannah, a Tallahassee, Fla., native played consistently well in the first and second rounds with two scores of 76. He is tied for 53rd with an eight-over par 152.


Florida State is tied for 14th in the team standings. The Seminoles begin final round play on Tuesday within striking distance of finishing in the top 10 for the first time this season.
