Seminole Women In Fourth Place At ACC Women’s Golf Championship

April 16, 2004

Led by sophomore Caroline Larsson and senior Katie Quinney, who are both tied for 10th place in the individual standings, Florida State is in fourth place in the team standings at the 16th annual Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Golf Championship at Salem Glen Country Club. Larsson and Quinney are in a group of four players who are all tied for 10th after carding identical scores of one-over par 72 while the Seminoles are within three strokes of Wake Forest for third place in the team standings.

No. 1 ranked Duke, the eight-time defending champion in the event, is in first place in the team standings and holds a six-stroke lead over North Carolina. North Carolina’s Meaghan Francella leads Duke’s Brittany Lang by one stroke in the individual standings. Francella carded a five-under par 66 and Lang a four-under par 67. Francella is the defending individual champion and looking to become the first repeat winner of the ACC Championship since Duke’s Jenny Chausiriporn in 1996 and 1997.

Larrson (Danderyd, Sweden) , who tied her season-best single round score with her 72 in the first round, was even through the first 12 holes of the day before finishing the final six at one-over par. She played 15 of the 18 holes in the first round at par, one at one-under par and two at one-over par. Larsson’s round of 72 ties her best single-round score during her participation in the ACC Championship – she also carded a 72 in the third round of the 2003 event on the same course.

Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) also played well and she finished 15 of the 18 holes at par or better. She recorded two birdies as she played the front nine at even par and played the back nine at one over par. Quinney’s one-over par 72 marked her best single-round score in this, her third ACC Championship appearance. She is Florida State’s leading golfer with a career-low 75.86 stoke average this spring.

Senior Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) finished with a two-over par 73 and is in a tie for 14th place in the individual standings. She was one-under par through the first 16 holes before finishing the final two holes at three-over par. Curdt is looking to earn her second consecutive top 15 finish in this event – She finished in a tie for 15th place in 2003.

Freshman Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) is in a tie for 20th place after carding a 76. Playing in her first career ACC Championship, Burch played 12 of the 18 holes in the first round at even par or better. Junior Tyler Johnson (Ponte Vedre Beach, Fla.), who is also playing in her first conference championship, is in a tie for 35th place heading into Saturday’s second round.
