Quinney’s Career Day Keeps Seminoles In 4th Place At ACC Women’s Golf Championship

April 17, 2004

Florida State University senior Katie Quinney carded a career-best four-under par 67 to keep the Seminole women’s golf team in fourth place after two rounds of the 16th Annual Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Golf Championship at Salem Glen Country Club. Quinney bettered by three strokes her previous career best of 70, which she had carded four times. She will begin play in Sunday’s final round in third place. She is only four strokes behind Meaghan Francella of North Carolina who is the individual leader after 36 holes.

No. 1 ranked Duke continues to lead the team standings and has opened up a 14-stroke lead on second-place North Carolina heading in the third round. The Blue Devils are looking to win the event for the ninth consecutive season. Francella holds a one-stroke lead over Duke’s Brittany Lang in a battle that could go down to the final hole. Florida State’s Quinney trails Francella by four strokes and Lang by three strokes.

Quinney’s career-best round came with the help of an eagle on the first hole and five birdies. She played 15 of the 18 holes in the second round at par or better and bogied only three holes. Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) played the front nine at three under and the back nine at one under. She is looking to gain the highest individual finish in the ACC Championship since Tiffany Faucette finished in second in 1995. All-American Kristin Tamulis finished in a tie for fourth in the individual standings in 2003.

Sophomore Caroline Larsson (Danderyd, Sweden) continued her quest for a top-15 individual finish as she carded a 76 in the second round. She is in a tie for 12th place in the individual standings with a two-day total of 148. Senior Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) is also in the top 15 with a 36-hole total of 149. She is in a tie for 15th place and only three strokes from moving into the top 10.

Freshman Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) and junior Tyler Johnson (Ponte Vedre Beach, Fla.) are also competing for the Seminoles. Burch is in 29th place and Johnson in 35th heading into Sunday’s third and final round.

Sunday’s third and final round begins at 8:30 p.m.
