May 21, 2003

The Florida State women??s golf team is in 21st-place after two rounds of the NCAA Women??s Golf Championship at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex at Purdue University. The Seminoles improved their overall team score by 11 strokes to earn one of the days biggest jumps in the field of 24. Seminole All-America candidate Kristin Tamulis is in a tie for 29th-place in the individual standings.

Southern California maintained its team lead for the second consecutive day while Annie Thurman of Oklahoma State took over sole possession of first place in the individual standings. The Trojans hold a three stroke lead over Oklahoma State with 36 holes remaining to be played. Thurman, with a three-over par score of 147, leads Kim Welch of Washington State by one stroke.

Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) carded a seven-over par 79 in the second round and has a two-day total of 156. She is looking to finish as the highest ranking Seminole in a tournament this spring for the fifth time in seven events. Tamulis is also looking to gain the highest finish ever by a Seminole women??s golfer in the NCAA Tournament. Amy Bond, Florida State??s current assistant coach, finished in a tie for 35th-place during the 1999 NCAA Tournament.

Four of Florida State??s five golfers improved their scores in the second round as compared to the first round.

Junior Carrie Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) realized the best improvement of the day for the Seminoles as she finished five strokes better in round two (80) than she did in round one (85). Sordel has a two-day total of 165 and is in a tie for 94th place.

Freshman Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) also earned a four-stroke improvement as she was one of two Seminoles to shoot a score below 80. She improved to a 79 in round two from an 83 in round one and has a two day total of 159. Larsson is second among the Seminoles?? five golfers and is in a tie for 77th-place.

Junior Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) realized a strong improvement as she made up four strokes from her first round total. She carded an 80 in the second round after shooting an 84 in Tuesday??s first round. She has a two-day total of 164.

Junior Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) also realized an improvement of two strokes. She shot an 84 in the second round after shooting an 86 in the first round. She has a 36-hole total of 170.

Florida State is paired with Stanford and North Carolina in the third round which is schedule to tee of at 8 a.m. Thursday. The final round of the tournament is scheduled for Friday.
