Seminoles’ Westrup Ties Career Low Round At UCF Women’s Golf Challenge

March 11, 2008

Seminole junior All-American Caroline Westrup tied her career-low score with a six-under par 66 and finished in a tie for seventh in the individual standings as competition at the UCF Challenge to Benefit the Florida Children’s Hospital came to a close. Westrup earned the 13th top 10 finish of her career and Florida State finished in 13th place in the team standings.

No. 1 ranked Duke bested the team field as the Blue Devils defeated Purdue by nine strokes. The Blue Devils rallied from a second place standing after the first round to capture the team title. Duke’s Alison Whitaker, who shot a seven-under par 65 in the first round, earned individual medalist honors as she finished with an eight-under par total of 208 for the three round event.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) carded her six-under par score of 66 with four birdies on her first nine and two on her second nine. She began her round on the 10th hole. She pared her first three holes of the afternoon and closed her first nine with birdies on four of her last six to make the turn at four-under par. Westrup closed with two birdies on her final nine holes to finish at six-under par. Westrup’s first career score of 66 came at the fall 2006 Lady Tar Heel Invitational.

Senior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) carded her third score of 75 or better as she finished with a one-over par total of 73 in the third round. She carded scores of 75-74-73 and finished with a three-round total of 222. Wright improved her scores in each of the final two rounds of the event. Fellow senior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) carded identical scores of 74 in the first and second rounds of the event and finished with a three-round total of 224.

Florida State continues their schedule as they travel to play at Louisiana State University / Cleveland Golf Classic March 14-16 in Baton Rouge, La.
