March 28, 2004

Florida State University senior Katie Quinney finished in third place in the individual standings and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in ninth place in the team standings as competition at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic came to a close at the University of Georgia Golf Course. Quinney tied her career best finish and the Seminoles gained their fifth top-10 finish in seven events this year.

Fifth-ranked Georgia rallied from a six-stroke deficit entering the final round to win the event, using a three-under par 285 to defeat No. 6 Ohio State by 11 strokes, 865 to 876. The Lady Bulldogs’ one over par 865 total set a par 72 Liz Murphey Classic record. Duke’s Brittany Lang won the individual championship with a nine-under par 207.

Quinney completed her masterpiece as she carded a two-under par 70 in the third round to finish with a 211 total. She tied her career-best finish during her three-year Seminole career with her finish in the prestigious Liz Murphey. Quinney also finished third at the University of Alabama Invitational during the fall of 2003. Her single-round score of 70 tied her career best score for a single round while her 211 total for the three-round event also marked a career best.

Sophomore Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) and senior Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) also enjoyed their best days of the year in Sunday’s final round. Larsson carded an even-par 72 and finished with a 223 total. Curdt also carded an even par 72 and finished with a 231 three-day total.

Freshman Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) carded a 78 while junior Tyler Johnson (Ponte Vedre Beach, Fla.) closed the event with an 80.
