EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (seminoles.com) – Sophomore Amanda Doherty finished in a tie for 11th place in the individual standings, and the No. 14 Seminole women’s golf team finished in 10th place in the team standings as play in the Fourth Annual ANNIKA Intercollegiate at the Olympic Hills Golf Club came to a close.  Doherty carded a 2-under par score of 70 on the third round, finished the event with a 1-under par total of 215 and was one of 13 players in the final standings to finish the event below par.

No. 1 Arkansas, which seized the lead in the first round, claimed the tournament championship with a 16-under par team total of 848.  The Razorbacks finished 12 strokes ahead of UCLA and 22 strokes ahead of third-place Stanford in the final team standings.  The Razorbacks were the only team in the field to finish at par or better in each of the three rounds of the event.  Maria Fassi of Arkansas won the individual championship with a 10-under par score of 206.  She shot a 6-under par 66 in the final round – tied for the best single round score among the 60 golfers in the field.

“We had an opportunity to put together a good round, and we let it slip away,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “There are areas of all of our games that we need to improve for our team to be able to compete at the highest level.”

Doherty (Atlanta, Ga.) was sensational in leading the Seminoles throughout the tournament.  She carded scores of 71-74-70 for her under par score of 215.  Doherty carded a team-high six birdies and was below par during virtually the entire third round.  The second-year player scored par on her first two holes, birdied her third hole and was at minus-four when she made the turn.  Doherty carded two birdies after the turn and was at or below par on 14 of her 18 holes.

It marked the second consecutive tournament in which Doherty has finished below par.  She finished with a 1-under par score at the Schooner Fall Classic.  She has now finished below par in four of the first 15 events of her career.  Her under par score of 70 marked the seventh time in nine fall rounds that she has finished under par; she is a cumulative total of 1-under par for the first three tournaments and nine rounds of her sophomore season.

Senior Morgane Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) finished in a tie for 22nd place in the individual standings with a final score of 220.  She carded a 1-under par score of 71 in the third round – a round in which she was nearly flawless.  Metraux carded 17 holes at par or better with two birdies.  She totaled two birdies and seven holes at par on her first nine and totaled eight of nine holes at par after making the turn for the clubhouse.

As a team, Florida State counted 15 birdies in the third round of the ANNIKA Intercollegiate to bring its season total to 122.  Bond will donate $10 for each birdie made by one of her players this fall to hurricane relief in the states of Florida and Texas (#birdiesfortxfl).

Florida State closes its four-match fall season at the Stanford Intercollegiate at the Poppy Hills Golf Club in Pebble Beach, Cal., Oct. 16-18.
