Feb. 24, 2002

Florida State sophomore Carrie Sordel shot a career-low one-over par 71 in Sunday’s third round and finished in ninth place in the individual standings at the SunTrust Lady Gator Invitational at the University of Florida Golf Course. Sordel and junior Kristin Tamulis (tied for 20th-place) finished in the top-20 in the individual standings to help the Seminoles to an 11th-place finish in the team standings.

Sordel’s third round score (71), three-round tournament score (224) and individual finish (tied for ninth) were all career-bests for the second-year player. Her previous low single-round (73) and tournament score (231) came at last year’s Lady Gator Invitational. Her previous best finish was a 25th-place standing at the 2001 ACC Championships. Sordel is a native of Windermere, Fla.

Tamulis (Naples, Fla.) played well during the tournament and moved up in the individual standings in both of the final two rounds. She was in a tie for 31st place after round two and improved her standing by 11 positions to finish in a tied for 20th-place. Her third round score of 76 was her best of the tournament.

Sophomore Katie Quinney (Atlantic Beach, Fla.) finished in a tie for 54th-place while senior Alison Zimmer (Tallahassee, Fla.) and sophomore Alison Curdt (St. Louis, Mo.) finished tied for 61st in the individual standings.

Florida shot a final-round 300 and held off a late surge by South Carolina to win the team championship. The Gators shot a three-round 900, defeating the Lady Gamecocks by nine strokes to claim their second Lady Gator Invitational title in three years.
