FLORIDA STATE PLACES EIGHTH IN CHRYSLER ACC/SEC CHALLENGE
The Florida State women’s golf team placed eighth in the fourth annual Chrysler ACC/SEC Challenge. Due to inclement weather the third round of the tournament was canceled. The final score after two rounds had the Seminoles finishing eighth — one stroke behind seventh place Alabama.

She finished third at the University of Alabama Intercollegiate and sixth at the New Mexico State University Tournament. In addition, Florida State has earned three consecutive top-10 team finishes to begin the 2003 fall season.
