Final Team Standings / Final Individual Standings / Final Team and Indidual Standings

BATON ROUGE, La. (seminoles.com) – Florida State freshman Taylor Roberts finished in a tie for 20th place in the individual standings, and the Seminole Women’s Golf Team finished in ninth place in the final team standings at the LSU Tiger Classic at the University Club.  Roberts carded an even par score of 72 in the final round and earned her third career (and second consecutive) top-20 individual finish.

Florida State was led on the scoreboard in the final round by junior Amelia Williamson who carded a 3-under par score of 69.  She carded five birdies in the final round as she helped the Seminoles earn the top-10 team finish with their best team score of the tournament.

LSU, the host school, won the team championship with a 22-stroke win over Ole Miss.  The Tigers moved into the team lead during the second round and stretched out their advantage in the third round.  LSU finished with two of three team rounds scored under par.  Ingrid Lindblad of LSU won the individual championship with a three round total of 211.  She was the only golfer in the field who carded three under par scores in the two-day event.

“The girls showed a lot of resilience today with each of their performances,” said Head Coach Amy.  “The conditions were harder today for all of the teams.  We gave ourselves a big jump in the standings today which was good, and a jump that we needed.”

Roberts continued her extremely consistent play in her first collegiate season with scores of 75-74-72 for her team-leading total of 221.  She has now carded 13 of her 15 scores this spring at 75 or better and each of her five tournament scores at 221 or better.  Roberts is averaging 73.20 strokes per round to rank among the top freshmen in the ACC.

In finishing with an even par 72 in the third round, Roberts totaled three birdies and 16 holes played at par or better.  She played each of her final seven holes of the round at par or better with one birdie.  Roberts totaled as many birdies in the third round (three) as she did in the first two rounds combined (three).

Williamson played the best round of the tournament for the Seminoles as she carded her score of 69 – the fourth round she has played in the 60’s this spring.  She totaled five birdies and 16 holes played at par or better in leading Florida State in the final round.  Williamson birdied three of her final seven holes of the day, including her final hole, to finish at 69.

Williamson’s 69 was the second best score of the round behind only a 67 by Brooke Tyree of Texas A&M.

Florida State’s Beatrice Wallin was 1 over par over the final 36 holes with scores of 71-74 in the second and third rounds.  Freshman Alice Hodge totaled scores of 75-74 in the first two rounds and finished in the top 50 of the individual standings for a fourth consecutive tournament.

With their regular season now complete, the Seminoles begin play in the four-day ACC Championship tournament on April 15.  Florida State, which has finished as the runner-up in each of the last three conference tournaments, will look to win its first ACC Championship when play begins on the course at the Sedgefield Country Club.
