NORMAN, Okla. (seminoles.com) – Florida State’s Charlotte Heath and Amelia Williamson are in a tie for seventh place in the individual standings, and the No. 11 ranked Seminole Women’s Golf team is in a tie for third place in the team standings after the first two rounds of the Schooner Fall Classic at the Belmar Golf Club.  Heath carded a 3 under par 67 in the first round while Williamson carded a 69 in the second round as the 15-team field played two rounds in the first event of the fall season for the Seminoles.

With all four of its counting players in the top six of the individual standings, Oklahoma State has the team lead after the first two rounds.  The Cowgirls took over the team lead in the first round as they counted four scores in the 60’s and then counted two more scores in the 60’s in the second round to maintain their lead in the team standings heading into Monday’s final round.  Oklahoma State is followed in the team standings by Illinois in second place and Florida State and Texas A&M who are tied for third.  Caley McGinty of Oklahoma State is the individual leader after the first two rounds with a 36-hole total of 134.  She carded scores of 67 in both the first and second rounds.

“The wind really blew during both rounds, and probably got up to about 20-25 mph,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “I thought we played well for the first day of the season – kicked the rust off as I like to say.  Our goal is to shoot the best round of the day tomorrow, and we are very capable of doing that in the third round.  I’m excited to be playing the final group – that’s always one of our goals entering every tournament.”

Heath, a sophomore, played outstanding golf throughout both rounds and finished with scores of 67 and 73 for a two-round total of 140.  Her score of 67 in the first round included six birdies – with birdies on each of her first three holes and five total on her front nine.  Heath was as many as five strokes under par and carded only two holes above par during the first round.  She carded two birdies and 13 holes at par or better in the second round and begins play in the final round only six strokes behind McGinty in the race for the individual championship.

“My day was very up and down,” said Heath.  “I got off to a hot start which was nice, but when the wind got up more it (the course) played a lot different and harder.  There’s lots to build upon for tomorrow.”

Williamson, a senior, played well in both rounds with scores of 71-69 to match Heath’s team-leading score of 140.  She certainly grew more comfortable with the course and played the whipping wind well throughout the day.  After playing her first nine holes at 2 over par, she played her final 27 holes a 2 under par.  Williamson totaled zero birdies on her first nine holes and seven birdies on her final 27 holes.  She totaled her score of 69 in the second round at 3 under par over her final nine holes with four birdies.

Williamson’s score of 69 is tied for her best score in her three Schooner Fall Classic appearances – she has carded at least one score of 69 each of her three times she has played in the event.

Senior All-American Beatrice Wallin, who is on the watch list for the ANNIKA Award, as the nation’s top player for the second consecutive season, is in a tie for 13th place in the individual standings with a two-round total of 141.  She scored a 1 under par 69 in the opening round – the 19th time in her Florida State career that she has carded a score in the 60’s.  Wallin totaled four birdies in the first and second rounds and earned single hole scores of par or better on 31 of her 36 holes.

Sophomore Alice Hodge is in a tie for 53rd place with  two-round total of 149.  Freshman Kaylah Williams, who is making her Seminole debut, is in a tie for 58th place with a two-round total of 150.

As a team, the Seminoles are ranked second in the tournament with 27 birdies through the first two rounds.  With eight birdies in the first two rounds, Heath is ranked second among all players in the 81-golfer field and is only one birdie behind only Ana Gonzalez of Texas Arlington, who totaled nine birdies on day 1 of the championship.

The Seminoles will play with Texas A&M and Oklahoma State, with the tee times for the three teams beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET.
