Seminoles' Westrup Earns All-America Honors For Second Consecutive Year.

Sophomore becomes first two-time All-America First-Team choice in school history.

May 26, 2007

TALLAHASSE, FL - Florida State University sophomore golfer Caroline Westrup, who finished in a tie for 11th place at the 2007 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship, has earned All-America First-Team honors for the second consecutive season as announced by the National Golf Coaches' Association at its annual post championship banquet.

"I'm honored to earn All-American honors again this season," said Westrup. "Being named All-American is a goal of mine each season and I am happy to reach that goal this season. I am going to work even harder to play better next year and set even higher goals for myself and my teammates. One of my top goals will be to have our team qualify for nationals so we can all share in the experience together."

Westrup is the first golfer in school history to earn All-America honors twice during her career. She is one of eight Florida State golfers to earn All-America honors at least once during her career.

She earned medalist honors twice -- at the Tar Heel Invitational and Chrysler Challenge.

She led the team with a career-low 72.29 strokes in 24 rounds of play, rounds scored at par or better (twelve), rounds scored at 75 or lower (16), and low single-round score (66). Her career-low single-round score of 66 came in the third round of the fall 2006 Cougar Classic.

Westrup spent the majority of the fall season ranked as the nation's No. 1 player and finished the regular season ranked as the nation's No.3 women's collegiate golfer according to GolfStat. She was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference women's golf team for the second consecutive season in a vote by the league's nine head coaches.

Westrup is already on the of Seminole All-Americans that includes Michelle Guibault (1981), Lisa Young Walters (1981), Barb Bunkowsky (1982), Nadia Ste-Marie (1989), Karen Stupples (1995) and Kristin Tamulis (2003). Both Stupples and Tamulis are currently playing on the LPGA Tour.

"I am really proud of Caroline and am proud of the way she played this season," said Head Coach Debbie Dillman. "It's a pleasure to be able to coach her every day and it's a pleasure to have her as a member of our team. She is a credit to Florida State University and it's certainly an honor to have a two-time All-American as part of our program."

Seminole Women's Golf Team Wins Championship At Cougar Fall Classic.

All-America Westrup shoots 66 in final round to lead Seminoles.

HANAHAN, SC - The Florida State women's golf team opened the 2006-07 campaign in stellar fashion as it claimed the team championship of the Cougar Fall Classic hosted by the College of Charleston at Yeamans Hall Golf Club. Leading the way for the Seminoles were sophomore Caroline Westrup, who finished in second in the individual standings, and junior Whitney Brummett, who finished third in the individual standings.

Florida State made up eight strokes on North Carolina and rallied from a tied for fifth team position after the first two rounds to pass Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana State and North Carolina to win the championship. The Seminoles defeated North Carolina by one stroke to claim the win in their first event of the fall season. It marks the fourth year in the last five years that Florida State has won at least one event.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden), who earned All-America First-Team honors in 2006, shot a career-low and tournament record 66 in the third round to finish second in the individual standings. She finished with a minus-four total of 212 - the best three round score vs. par and the best gross score of her Seminole career. Westrup has now earned eight top four finishes in eight career starts including four finishes of second or better. She played 16 of her 18 holes at par or better with eight holes being scored with birdies. She lost to Lauren Hunt of North Carolina by two strokes.

Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) played the best event of her career and finished in third place - only one stroke behind Westrup and three strokes behind Hunt. Brummett established her career best scoring rounds on the first days of the event as she carded identical scores of 70 in rounds one and two. She finished with career best scores for a single round (70), three-round tournament (213), three-round score vs. par (-3) and tied her personal best with her third place finish.

Sophomore Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) finished tied for 29th as she played the best tournament of her Seminole career. She shot a career-low 73 in the second and third rounds, finished with a career-low 224 score for the three-round event and finished in a career-best tied for 29th place in the individual standings. Cousart shaved 18 strokes off of her previous career-low tournament score of 242 at the fall 2005 Florida State hosted Chrysler Challenge.

Senior Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) finished tied for 39th and sophomore Erica Gonzalez (Davie, Fla.) finished tied for 53rd in the individual standings. Burch shot a tournament-low 73 in the third and final round while Gonzalez performed well in her second event as a member of the Seminoles' starting line-up.

Westrup Ties For Medalist Honors As Seminoles Finish 10th At Tar Heel Women's Golf Invitational.

Westrup earns second career individual medalist honor.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Florida State University sophomore Caroline Westrup shot a three-under par 69 in the final round of the Lady Tar Heel Women's Golf Invitational and finished tied for first in the individual standings to lead the Seminoles to a 10th place finish in the team standings. Westrup finished tied for first with Ashley Knoll of Texas A&M with identical scores throughout the event - 73-72-69 for 214 totals - to earn the second individual victory of her collegiate career. Westrup, the No. 13 ranked individual in the nation, finished in front of five golfers ranked ahead of her in the national standings and defeated the nation's No. 5 ranked golfer, Lauren Hunt of North Carolina, by 11 strokes.

Westrup has now won two events and earned seven top-four finishes in nine career starts at Florida State. She also earned medalist honors at the spring 2006 Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic at the University of Georgia. In two events this fall, she has earned a second place finish (at the College of Charleston Cougar Fall Classic) and a tied for first place finish (at the Tar Heel Invitational) and is a total of six strokes under par in six rounds this fall.

Vanderbilt, which began the event ranked 18th in the nation by GolfWeek Magazine, won the team championship as the Commodores led the event wire-to-wire. The Commodores defeated No. 1 ranked Duke by six strokes. Chris Brady led Vanderbilt with a 219 score and a tied for fourth place finish.

Westrup was on top of her game in the third round as she carded 17 of 18 holes at par or better to finish with the second best single-round score of her Seminole career. She bogied her final hole to miss winning the individual title outright by one stroke. Westrup carded her career-best of 66 in the final round of the fall 2006 Cougar Classic on Sept. 12.

"I hit my second shot over the green and into the pine needles; I had never played out of the pine needles before," said Westrup. "I hit my next shot within six feet and unfortunately I missed the putt. I'm okay with it because I will learn from the entire tournament and be better when I hit into a situation like that again."

Senior Jaclyn Burch (Wildwood, Mo.) finished the tournament with a three-over par 75 to finish tied for 18th place. She played well on throughout the final round with 14 holes at par or better including a birdie on the par four 10th hole. Burch has now earned 10 top-20 finishes during her four-year Seminole career.

Senior Kayla Shaul (Cumming, Ga.) and juniors Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) and Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) also played in the event for the Seminoles. Shaul shot a tournament-best 77 in the second round; Brummett shot an event-best 78 in the third and final round and Wright a three-round best of 81 in the second round.

The Seminoles return to the course at the Auburn Tiger Derby Invitational beginning Oct. 27. They close out their fall season at the NGCA Match Play Championship beginning Nov. 3 at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, Fla.

Seminole Women's Golf Team Finishes In Eighth At Auburn Tiger Derby.

Senior Burch leads Florida State with top-15 finish.

AUBURN, AL - The Florida State University women's golf team finished in eighth place in the team standings as play in the rain-shortened Auburn Tiger Derby came to a close Sunday. The Seminoles finished as the second highest ranking ACC team in the field and only one stroke out of the top five and five strokes from finishing in second place. Florida State played the final round of the event without the services of All-American and World Amateur Champion Caroline Westrup who withdrew from the event after Saturday's round because of an illness.

Auburn, the host team, won the event going away with a 12-stroke cushion over the second-place Alabama. Auburn had three players finish in the top four of the individual standings including Marisa Milligan who carded a one-over par score of 145 in the two-round event. The first round was cancelled because of inclement weather.

Westrup, the nation's No. 1 ranked collegiate women's player, shot a four-over par 76 in the first round on Saturday and fell ill after the round. She was unable to participate in the final round on Sunday and was forced to withdraw from the event. Westrup won the individual championship at the World Amateur Team Championship in South Africa earlier this month.

Senior Jaclyn Burch (Ellisville, Mo.) played consistently in the two rounds of the event and carded identical scores of 75 to finish in a tie for 11th place with a 36-hole total of 150. The finish marked her first top-15 finish and second top-20 finish of the fall season. Burch finished in a tie for 18th place at the Lady Tar Heel Invitational in early October.

Senior Kayla Shaul (Cumming, Ga.) earned the best score of the second round for the Seminoles as she cared an even par 72 to finish with a 152 total and in a tie for 21st place. She eagled her next to last hole and birdied her final hole to finish at even par for the day. Shaul bettered her first day score by eight strokes in earning the best finish of her eight-match Seminole career.

Junior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) played the second best round of the day for the Seminoles as she finished with a two-over par 74. She bettered her first round score by 10 strokes and her individual placing by 22 places with her second round play. Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) also competed for the Seminoles.

Florida State closes out its fall schedule as it begins play in the NCGA Match-Play Championship Friday against Florida at Eagle Creek Country Club in Orlando. The Seminoles are seeded seventh in the event and the Gators are seeded 10th. The winner of the Seminoles' match against the Gators will face the winner the Duke/South Carolina match in the second round.

Seminole Women's Golf Team Thumps Florida But Falls To Duke at NGCA Match Play Championship.
Seminoles play well on national stage.

ORLANDO, FL - The Florida State University women's golf team defeated Florida and narrowly lost to Duke on the first day of the National Golf Coaches' Association Match Play Championship at Eagle Creek Golf Club. The Seminoles defeated the Gators handily in their first match, 5-0, before falling to Duke, 2-1-2. The match against the Blue Devils came down to the Seminoles' No. 1 and No. 2 players and Duke's No. 1 and No. 2 players with the winners taking the match for their respective teams. Both individual matches ended in ties giving Duke the team victory with a 2-1-2 record in the five-woman competition.

The Seminoles will face third seeded Auburn in their first match on Saturday. Auburn defeated Alabama but lost to Michigan State in its two matches Friday.

"We had them; we gave them a run for their money," said Head Coach Debbie Dillman after falling to Duke in the second match of the afternoon. "To lose like that is a heartbreaker but every player on our team played very well. It's exciting to see our improvement each week. Our performance today proves to the rest of the country what we already believe - we are a very good golf team and we are only going to get better in the spring and in the future."

After victories by Duke's Alison Whitaker over Florida State's Kayla Shaul (1-up) and Duke's Jennie Lee over Florida State's Whitney Wright (five and four) in the five and four matches gave Duke a 2-0 lead, Florida State's Whitney Brummett defeated Anna Grzebien of Duke (1-up) to bring Florida State back into the match. It was then up to the No. 1 and No. 2 players on both teams.

The No. 2 match pitted Florida State's Jaclyn Burch against Duke's Amanda Blumenhurst. Burch jumped out to a lead and was 1-up after the first six holes. Blumenhurst tied the match on the seventh hole and was herself 1-up after holes 13 and 14. Burch won the 15th hole and the two players remained all-square over the final four holes to finish tied.

The match then came down to the final competition - Florida State's No. 1 Caroline Westrup against Duke's No. 1 Jennifer Pandolfi. Westrup entered the competition as the nation's No. 1 ranked collegiate golfer by GolfWeek Magazine while Pandolfi entered the competition ranked in the top 15. Westrup took a quick lead and was 1-up through the first four holes before Pandolfi recovered and tied the match after the front nine. Westrup took the lead on the 10th hole and held as much as a 3-up lead after the 14th hole before Pandolfi again got a second wind. She won three of the final four holes to pull even and half the match.

Florida State dominated Florida in winning all five matches contested between the two teams. The Seminoles played so well that only three of the five individual matches went the entire 18 holes one and one lasting only 15 holes.

Seminole All-America Caroline Westrup, playing in the featured match of the top two players on each team won her match four and three over Ornella Jouven. Westrup took the look lead on the fourth hole of the match and never looked back. She increased her lead throughout the match and led by four holes with only three remaining to earn the victory.

All-America Westrup Leads Seminoles At Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic.

Sophomore earns third place individual finish at prestigious event.

March 25, 2007

ATHENS, GA - Florida State sophomore All-America Caroline Westrup shot an even par 71 in the final round but was unable to repeat as tournament champion as she finished tied for third in the individual standings in leading the No. 25 ranked Seminoles to a 10th place team finish at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic at the University of Georgia Golf Course. Westrup completed the event one stroke behind Maria Hernandez of Purdue and Leah Wigger of Virginia who finished tied for medalist honors with scores of 215 - one stroke ahead of Westrup's 216 total for the 54-hole event.

Westrup, the nation's No. 2 ranked individual player, made a strong run at individual medalist honors during the final round. She played her final 12 holes of the tournament at three under par but fell one stroke shy of catching Hernandez and Wigger. Wigger defeated Hernandez on the first playoff hole by one stroke to claim medalist honors. Auburn led the team race wire-to-wire to win the championship. The Tigers won the championship by 11 strokes.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) began to roll and looked like she would overtake the individual leaders after playing her first six holes of the day at three over par. She closed the round with four birdies, seven holes at par and only one bogie to finish with a tournament best 71. Hernandez the played the final round at one under while Wigger was even par over the final 18 holes to hold off the charging Westrup. Westrup has now earned an individual championship and two third place finishes in her last three events.

Junior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) played her best round of the spring season as she carded a one-over par 72 in the final round. She improved he score during both of the final two rounds with scores of 77 and 72 after opening the event with a 79. Brummett finished tied for 33rd in the individual standings. Junior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) also played well over the final 18 holes with a three-over par score of 74. Her scores also improved over the final two days of the event after an opening round 83.

The Seminoles' next event is scheduled for April 6-7-8 at the Bryan National Collegiate at Browns Summit, N.C.

Westrup Leads Seminoles In Final Round Of Bryan National Collegiate.

All-America Westrup on top of Seminoles' leaderboard again.

BROWNS SUMMIT, NC - Florida State All-American Caroline Westrup finished in a tie for 12th place in the individual standings and the Seminole women's golf team finished in 14th place in the team standings as play in the Bryan National Collegiate came to a close on the Bryan Park Champions Course. Westrup's finish was her fifth top 15 individual finish but only the second time she had not finished in the top three of an event in which she had completed play this spring.

Purdue, which played with only four players instead of the usual five in the starting line-up, won the team title as it defeated second place Florida by seven strokes. The Boilermakers finished 11 strokes ahead of No. 1 ranked Duke - which finished in fourth place in the team standings. The Seminoles, who are ranked 24 in this week's Golf Week / NGCA National poll, finished out of the top 10 in the team standings in an event for only the second time in five events this spring.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) finished the event with an uncharacteristic 78 in the final round and an eight-over par 224 score for the 54-hole event. She carded an even-par 72 in the first round and a two-over par 74 in the second round. Westrup's team-leading tied for 12th place finish marked the fifth time in five events that she had finished as the Seminoles' leader this spring.

Junior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) led the Seminoles in the final round with a five-over par 77 - her best round of the event. She carded identical scores of 78 in the first two rounds and finished with a 237 total for the three-day, high-powered event - her third best tournament score vs. par (+21) this spring. Junior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) finished tied for 48th place with a 234 total for the event. She finished as the Seminoles' second ranking player for the fourth consecutive event.

Westrup Finshes Second; Seminoles In Third At ACC Women's Golf Champioinship.

Westrup ties FSU best for finish in ACC Championship.

CHARLOTTE, NC - Florida State sophomore All-American Caroline Westrup finished in second place in the individual standings and led the Seminoles to a third place finish in the team standings at the 19th Annual Atlantic Coast Conference Championship at the Carmel Country Club. Westrup tied the school record for the highest individual finish by a Florida State player in the ACC Championship in leading the Seminoles to their highest finish in the event since they also finished third in the team standings in 2001.

Duke, the No. 1 ranked team in women's collegiate golf, won its unprecedented 12th consecutive conference championship as it outdistance second-place Wake Forest by 35 strokes and third-place Florida State by 40 strokes. The Blue Devils have won every ACC Championship since 1996. Duke's Amanda Blumenhurst out-dueled Westrup over the final seven holes of the event to win the individual championship by three strokes. The victory allowed Blumenhurst to defend the individual ACC Championship which she also won in 2006.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden), who began the final round with a two shot lead over Blumenhurst, began slowly with a double-bogie on the first hole to fall into a tie for first place. She recovered nicely with a birdie on the second hole to take the lead back. Westrup then played even-par golf through the 11th hole and was one stroke ahead in the individual competition before falling behind with bogies on 12 and 13, a double bogie on 15 and another bogie on 16 to fall three shots behind Blumenhurst. She closed the event with a par on 17 and a bogie on 18 to finish at seven-over par (79) for the round and one-over par for the tournament (215).

Westrup finished under par in a tournament for the third time this year and for the fourth time during her stellar career. Her second place finish in the conference championship tied her with Tiffany Faucette (1995) and Mary Lee Cobick (1992) for highest individual finish by a Seminole in the event. Westrup has now finished in second and fourth place (2006) in two career ACC Championship events.

Sophomore Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) played her best round of the tournament with a second consecutive score of 76. She finished as the second highest ranking Seminole in a tie for 15th place in the individual standings. Cousart carded identical scores of 76 in the second and third rounds after carding a 79 in the first round to finish with a 54-hole total of 231 - the third best tournament score of her Seminole career. Cousart finished the third round with 10 holes at par or better, two birdies and no bogies - she was the only Seminole to finish the third round without a bogie.

Junior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) and senior Kayla Shaul (Cumming, Ga.) also competed for the Seminoles in the conference championship. Brummett competed in the event for the third time in her career while Shaul was on the ACC's biggest stage for the first time.

Westrup Advances As An Individual To Play In 2007 NCAA Women's Golf Championship.

Seminoles fall just short of advancing to nationals for fifth time in last six seasons.

BATON ROUGE, LA - Florida State All-American Caroline Westrup shot a two-under par 70 in the final round, finished with a career-best eight-under par 208 and advanced as an individual to the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship to be held at the LPGA International Course in Daytona Beach, Fla., May 22-25. She becomes the first Seminole player to advance to the national championships as an individual. Westrup finished in a tie for fifth place but was the best scoring individual not on an advancing team as play in the NCAA East Regional Championship at the University Club came to a conclusion Saturday.

Florida State finished in a tie for 11th place in the team standings - three places and only eight strokes behind eighth place Louisville - and narrowly missed advancing to the championship as a team for the fourth time in the last five seasons. The Seminoles began the final round 14 strokes out of the chase for the championship and played well enough to put themselves in position to qualify for the final weekend of play. The Seminoles were within five strokes of the eighth position and in 11th place during the round.

"I am both happy and sad at the same time," said Westrup after completing her round. "I am happy that I get to keep playing but I have a hollow feeling because my teammates won't be playing with me at nationals. It is a goal of ours to go as a team every year and this year we didn't get there as a team. I know they are all happy for me but they are my teammates and I will miss playing with them. I am also happy because even though we will not have Kayla (Shaul) next season, both of the Whitney's (Brummett and Wright) and Lauren (Cousart) will be back to make us a very strong team next season."

With six birdies among Florida State's top four players on the front nine, the Seminoles were at even par and making a move at the cut line at the turn after hole nine. The Seminoles had a team score of par despite bogies from three different players on the ninth hole. With a team score of 285, the Seminoles played the fourth best round of any team in the event in the final round.

Westrup carded her third round of sub-par golf as she finished with a two-under par 70 in the final round. She finished in a tie for fifth place. Westrup established school records for lowest score in an NCAA Regional (208), lowest score as compared to par in an NCAA Regional (-8) and lowest single-round score in an NCAA Regional (69 in the first and second rounds). Her individual finish of tied for fifth is the second-best regional finish in school history - second only to her own tied for third finish at the 2006 NCAA East Regional at Brown's Summitt, N.C.

Senior Kayla Shaul (Cumming, Ga.) finished with an three-par score of 69 in the final round and a three-round total of one-over par 217. She proved to be quite a postseason player as she helped lead the Seminoles to strong appearances in each of the last two NCAA Regional championships. Shaul's score of 69 and her three-round tournament score of 217 are the best of her Seminole career. She birdied the final three holes of the third round to finish as Florida State's low scorer in a round for the first time in her career.

Junior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) played her best round of the tournament and finished with a final round score of even-par 72. She improved her score by eight stokes from the second round after shooting an uncharacteristic 80 on Friday. Brummett's score of 72 is the second best NCAA Regional score of her career - she shot a 70 in the second round of last year's regional.

Junior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) also played her best round of the regional as she finished with a two-over par score of 74. She earned two birdies on both the front and back nine but was one-over par on each side. Wright's tournament score of 226 was the Seminoles' third best of the tournament as she played in her first career NCAA Regional championship.

Sophomore Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) performed well in her first career postseason appearance as he closed her event with a seven-over par score of 79. She carded a three-over par 75 in the first round and averaged 77.33 strokes per round - nearly 1.5 strokes fewer than she did in 15 rounds during the spring season.

"We gave it a great shot and I am very proud of all of our players," said Head Coach Debbie Dillman. "We knew we would play well today and we all did; it's one of the marks of a Florida State golfer - one who never gives up. I am excited for Caroline bur our team deserved better. We played really well in a really tough regional and played well enough to move on to nationals. With the way we finished today I am even more excited about next season than I was after our strong performance at ACC's.

No. 1 ranked Duke stormed back to win the regional championship as the Blue Devils carded a 16-under par team score of 272 to defeat UCLA by two strokes. Duke was led by ACC Player of the Year Amanda Blumenherst who shot a course record 63. The single-round score of 63 tied the Blue Devil record at nine strokes under par. The single-round score Duke school record of 62 came by Liz Janangelo in the Florida State hosted ACC/SEC Challenge during the fall of 2005.

Westrup Finishes Tied For 12th At NCAA Women's Golf Championship.

All-American earns highest NCAA finish in Seminole women's golf history.

DAYTONA BEACH, FL - Florida State sophomore golfer Caroline Westrup shot a two-over par 74 in the final round and finished in a tie for 12th place at the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship on the Legends Course at LPGA International. The finish is the highest individual finish in the NCAA national championship event by a Seminole women's golfer.

Westrup's spectacular season came to a close with the end of the event. The talented sophomore finished the season with a career-best 72.60 stroke average in 25 rounds and led the Seminoles in rounds scored at par or better (10) and rounds scored a 75 or better (22 of 25). Westrup improved her finish by two strokes and 17 places in the individual standings in the 2007 NCAA Championship as compared to the 2006 NCAA Championship when she finished in a tie for 29th place with a four-day total of 299.

Westrup carded four birdies, nine holes of even-par golf, four bogeys and one double bogey during the fourth round which was played in a myriad of weather conditions. She played through high temperatures, swirling winds and intermittent rain.

Westrup played well enough to make up for a couple of tough holes in the final day in finishing with her third score of 74 during the event. She opened her round with a bogey on her first hole before moving back to even par with a birdie on hole five. She then moved to two strokes over par with a double bogey six on the par four sixth hole before rounding out the front nine with consecutive birdies to finish her first nine holes at even par.

Westrup began the back nine with bogies on two of her first three holes and was not able to get back to even-par for the round. She birdied hole 13 to move back to one-over par before carding a bogey on 17 finishing the round at two-over par.

Stacy Lewis of Arkansas, one of six individuals in the event and a playing partner of Westrup throughout the championship, won the individual championship with a six under par total of 282. She carded a six-under par 66 in the final round to move from third place after three rounds into first place in the final standings. No. 1 ranked Duke won its third consecutive NCAA Division I championship and it nearly lapped the field in winning by 14 stokes.
