Florida State Women’s Golf Team In Fifth Place At Hatter Fall Classic

Oct. 19, 2001

Florida State University sophomore Katie Quinney is in third place and junior Kristin Tamulis is tied for fourth in the individual standings, and the Seminole women’s golf team is in fifth place after the first round of the Hatter Fall Classic at the Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Club. Quinney shot a four-over par 76 and trails the leaders by only one stroke while Tamulis shot a six-over par 78 and trails by only three strokes.

Quinney (Jacksonville Beach, Fla.) shot a first-round best 36 on the front nine and finished with a 40 on the backside to total 76. Her 76 is her personal best round of the fall season and the second time in seven rounds as a Seminole she has shot below 80. Her career best round of 74 came twice last spring when she was playing as a freshman at Jacksonville University. Quinney entered the tournament averaging 82.67 strokes per round in six rounds this fall. Her previous best round as a Seminole was 79 in the second round of the ACC/SEC Shootout on Sept. 29.

Tamulis (Naples, Fla.), Florida State’s top golfer with a 76.44 stoke average entering this tournament, is in fourth place with a four-over par score of 78. She closed the first round in strong fashion with a 38 on the final nine holes after playing the first nine holes with a score of 40.

Florida State is looking for its highest team finish and third top-10-placing of the fall season. The Seminoles finished in eighth place at the ACC/SEC Shootout. Florida State begins second round play Saturday morning well within reach of the first place in the team standings. It trails Central Florida, the first round leader, by a mere eight strokes. Quinney begins play in the second round only one stroke back of the current leaders, Sarah Bonner of NC State and Federica Piovano of Central Florida.
