STANFORD, Calif. (seminoles.com) – Florida State freshman Frida Kinhult finished in a tie for fifth place in the individual standings, and the Seminole Women’s Golf Team finished in a tie for fifth place in the team standings as play in the Stanford Intercollegiate hosted by Condoleezza Rice at the Stanford Golf Course came to a close. The individual finish for Kinhult was her first career top-five individual finish and her third consecutive top-10 finish. She has finished in the top-10 in the individual standings in the first three events of her collegiate career.

The fifth place finish marks the second top-five finish in three events for the Seminoles this fall. Florida State, which entered the tournament ranked No. 25 in the most recent national poll by Golfstat, finished ahead of No. 2 UCLA (tied for ninth) and No. 21 Pepperdine (seventh) while finishing tied with No. 8 Arizona State.

No. 3 Southern California led wire to wire and earned the team championship with a 15 stroke victory over host Stanford. The Ladies of Troy had four players finish under par and in the top 10 of the individual standings. Hira Naveed of Pepperdine and Mariel Galdiano of UCLA finished as the individual co-champions with 8 under par scores of 205.

“I mentioned yesterday that I felt like we would get something going early today, and they sure did that,” said Florida State Director of Golf Trey Jones. “I am proud of the way they accepted the challenges of coming to the west coast and competing. Having the second best team score of the day in this field in the final round is a glimpse of what’s ahead for this team. I have no doubt under Coach Amy Bond’s guidance this will be a great team in April and May.”

Kinhult led the Seminoles in the individual standings for the second time in her first three events as she carded a 67 in the final round to finish with a 1 over par total of 214. She finished with scores of 69-73-67 as she tied her career-best score for a single round as a Seminole on Sunday. Kinhult has finished with a team-high five scores in the 60’s in the first eight rounds of her career.

Kinhult was on fire again in the third round as she carded a team-high five birdies and 17 holes at par or better. She birded her first two, and five of her first 10 holes to take command of the course. Kinhult was as many as five strokes under par for the round. For the season, Kinhult is a cumulative total of 15 strokes under par in her first three events and eight rounds.

Junior All-American Amanda Doherty and freshman Beatrice Wallin finished tied for 13th place in the individual standings with identical 1 over par tournament scores of 214.

Doherty finished the event with a 1 under par score of 70 to earn her second top-15 individual finish of the fall season. She totaled two birdies and 17 holes scored at par or better to earn her 15th career top-15 individual finish. Doherty was a total of 3 under par during the second and third rounds as she steadily made her way up the individual leader board.

Wallin earned the first top-15 finish of her career as she scored an even par 71 in the final round. She totaled three birdies and her first eagle as a Seminole to earn her second score of par or better in the tournament. Wallin scored her eagle on the par 5 hole No. 3 to move to 4 under par. She has now earned three top-30 finishes, is a cumulative total of three strokes under par for the season, and has carded five of her first eight rounds as a collegian at par or better.
