Florida State Women’s Golf Team In 16th Place At NCAA Central Regional Golf Tournament

May 9, 2002

The Florida State women’s golf team is in 16th place after the first round of the NCAA Central Regional Tournament at Forest Akers West Golf Course on the campus of Michigan State University. Seminole junior Kristin Tamulis is in a tie for 22nd place and senior Alison Zimmer is in a tie for 29th in the individual standings. The event was delayed by 2? hours at the start of round one because of severe thunder and lightning storms that enveloped the area surrounding the golf course. Fortunately, the weather forecast for Friday is for sunshine with temperatures in the upper 50’s.

Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) finished with the best round of the day for the Seminoles, a six-over par 78. She finished the day with three birdies including two on the back nine. Tamulis’ best score came on the par three 12th as she eagled the hole. The Seminole leader played the back nine in a one-under par score of 35.

Zimmer (Tallahassee, Fla.) continued her late-season charge as she finished the course with a seven-over par 79. She played well on the back nine as she carded a two-over par 38. Zimmer birdied two holes and was even par on four others.

Sophomores Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.), Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) and Carrie Sordel (Windermere, Fla.) are also competing for the Seminoles who are appearing in an NCAA regional for the second consecutive season.

Florida State begins second round play Friday morning looking to make up 23 strokes in the current team leader, Kent State. The Golden Flash leads the team standings with a 16-over par 304 team score. The Seminoles are only 13 strokes behind eighth place Texas Christian for the final NCAA team qualifying position. The top eight teams and top two individuals in this region advance to the NCAA Championship tournament in Auburn, Wash.
