Seminoles' Westrup Earns All-ACC Honors In Women's Golf For Third Time.

Junior honored in first three years of Florida State career.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State junior Caroline Westrup, the nation's No. 12 ranked player according to GolfStat, was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference women's golf team in a vote by the league's nine head coaches. It marks Westrup's third consecutive selection to the all-conference team for the Seminole junior who is among the favorites to earn All-America First-Team honors for the third straight season. Westrup is the only the second player in Florida State women's golf history to earn All-ACC honors three times in her career and the first in school history to earn the honor as both a freshman, a sophomore and a junior. Only Kristin Tamulis (2001, 2002 and 2003) has earned All-ACC honors three times as Seminole.

Westrup will lead the No. 26 ranked Seminoles into the 2008 NCAA Central Regional Championship at the University of Texas Golf Course in Austin, Texas, beginning Thursday. The event runs May 8-10 with the top eight teams and the top two individuals not on those eight teams advancing to the NCAA Championship finals at the University of New Mexico, May 20-23.

"I am honored to be named to the All-ACC women's golf team for the third consecutive year," said Westrup. With one season remaining in my career I am three-quarters of the way to reaching one of the goals I set for myself when I arrived as I freshman - I wanted to be All-ACC in each of my four years at Florida State. Another one of my goals begins again this week as I work together with my teammates to get the Seminoles back the championship finals where we can play to win a national championship. The main goal I set when I was a freshman was for Florida State to win an NCAA Championship during my career."

Westrup is ranked 12th nationally in the GolfStat Cup rankings and 17th nationally in the GolfWeek/Sagarin Performance Rankings. She is the second highest ranked ACC player in both rankings. Westrup won the individual championship at the LSU/Cleveland Golf Classic and finished as the runner-up at the ACC Championship with a three-under par score of 213. She is finished under par in three of her six spring tournaments and has cut more than one stroke off of her fall stroke average (74.00) in the spring season (72.83). Westrup is the Seminoles' leading golfer in eight of nine events in fall 2007 and spring 2008 and tied her career low for a single round with a 66 in the third round of the spring 2008 UCF Challenge.

"For Caroline to earn All-ACC honors in her first three years is a tremendous accomplishment for any golfer," said Head Coach Debbie Dillman. "We are very proud of her because she is a fantastic representative for our program. I am most proud of the fact that she would forgo her individual accomplishments and turn them in to team accomplishments in a heartbeat. She has so much more of a team player than an individual and that is why she is so well liked by her teammates."


Seminoles' Westrup Earns All-America Honors In Women's Golf.

Junior is first three-time All-American in school history.

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Florida State University junior golfer Caroline Westrup earned All-America Second-Team Honors as announced by the National Golf Coaches' Association at its annual banquet following the final round of the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Tournament. It marks the third consecutive season Westrup has earned All-America honors making her the first three-time All-American in Seminole women's golf history. She earned All-America First-Team Honors in both 2006 and 2007 and All-America Second-Team honors this season.

In addition to earning All-America honors for the third consecutive season, Westrup was also named to the All-ACC team earlier this season. She is the only player in school history to be a three-time All-America and a three-time All-ACC honoree.

"I am very honored to be named an All-American for the third time in my career," said Westrup. "To be the first three-time All-American in school history is something that I am very proud of knowing the tremendous history of this program and the great players who have played their collegiate careers at Florida State. To be the first three-time All-American at Florida State is very humbling because of the success of this program, the great success of the players who have played at Florida State and the success those players have earned during their professional careers."

Westrup, who finished in a tie for 13th place in the recently completed NCAA Championship finals, averaged 73.12 strokes in 34 rounds during 11 tournaments as a junior. Westrup is ranked 13th nationally in the final GolfStat Cup rankings and 17th nationally in the final GolfWeek/Sagarin Performance Rankings of the 2007-08 season. She finished her junior season as the second highest ranked ACC player in both rankings.

Westrup won the individual championship at the LSU/Cleveland Golf Classic as she led Florida State to the team title in the event in March. She finished as the runner-up at the ACC Championship with a three-under par score of 213 and was under par in three of her seven spring tournaments. She enjoyed a strong spring season as she cut more than one stroke off of her fall stroke average (74.00) in the spring season (72.97). Westrup led Florida Sate with 12 rounds at par or better and 18 of 25 rounds at 75 or better this spring. She finished as the Seminoles' leading golfer in nine of 10 events in fall 2007 and spring 2008 and tied her career low for a single round with a 66 in the third round of the UCF Challenge.

"I would like to thank my coaches - Coach (Debbie) Dillman and Coach (Katie) Quinney - and my teammates for their support during the first three years of my career at Florida State. My coaches are great and I love my teammates. My main goal for next season is play at nationals with my teammates and that's a goal that we all have to start working on to reach this summer and as soon as we get back to campus in the fall."

All-America Westrup Leads Seminoles At Cougar Classic.

Junior All-America earns top-12 individual finish at Cougar Classic.

HANAHAN, SC - Junior All-American Caroline Westrup led the Florida State women's golf team to an eighth place finish in the team standings at the fall 2007 season opening Cougar Classic at Yeaman's Hall Golf Club. Westrup finished in a tie for 12th place in the individual standings to mark the eighth consecutive time the two-time All-American has finished as the Seminoles' leader in an event. She finished eight strokes behind Lisa Maunu of Notre Dame who claimed individualist honors in leading the Fighting Irish to the team championship.

Notre Dame rallied from three strokes down after two rounds to defeat Tennessee by one stroke in the team competition. The Irish entered the event unranked and finished ahead of nine of the top 35 teams in the nation including Florida State which began the event ranked 26th nationally. Maunu earned medalist honors for the first time in her career as she defeated teammate So-Hyn Park by three strokes. Florida State's Westrup finished eight strokes behind Maunu.

Florida State finished as the second ranked ACC team in the event behind only North Carolina and ahead of NC State, Miami and Maryland.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) finished in a tie for 12th place with a three-round total of 218. She climbed into the individual race after shooting a two-under par score of 70 to move into a tie for 12th place after two rounds. Westrup shot a two-over par 74 and was in a tie for 35th place after the first round of the event. She moved into a tie for 12th place in the second round and that's where she finished as she carded another two-over par 74 in the third round.

Junior Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) played the best round of her Seminole career as she carded a career-low two-under par 70 in the final round. She moved from a tie for 83rd place after two rounds into a tie for 54th place in the final standings with her team-leading score in the third round. Cousart's pervious career-best score was a 72 in the third round of the spring 2007 Lady Gator Invitational.

Seniors Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) and Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) finished in a tie for 35th place in the individual standings. Brummett finished with a final round 76 for a 228 total while Wright finished with a 228 total after a career-low 68 in the first round of the event. Sophomore Lacey Agnew (Jonesboro, Ga.), who carded a 77 in the second round of the event, finished in a tie for 79th place with a 54-hole total of 238.

Florida State plays in its next event at the Lady Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C. on Oct. 5-7.

Westrup Leads Seminoles In Final Standings At Lady Tar Heel Golf Invitational.

Junior All-America finishes at top of Seminoles' leaderboard.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Florida State University junior All-America Caroline Westrup carded an even par 72 in the final round and finished as the Seminoles' scoreboard leader for the eighth time in the last nine events as play in the 2007 Lady Tar Heel Invitational at the Finley Golf Course came to a close. The Seminoles, ranked 28th in the GolfStat/Sagarin Performance Index, finished in 14th place in the team standings.

No. 1 ranked Duke rallied from ninth place after the first round and second place after the second round to defeat Tennessee by two strokes and win the team championship. The Blue Devils were the best team in the field in the second and third rounds after falling behind the team leaders by as many as seven stokes after the first 18 holes of the event. Duke's Amanda Blumenhurst was under par in all three rounds and finished with a seven-under par score of 209 to claim the individual championship.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) carded an even par 72 in the final round and finished in a tie for 28th place with a three round total of 223.

Westrup has been Florida State's top finisher in both of the Seminoles' events during the fall of 2007.

Senior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) enjoyed her second consecutive strong outing as she finished with consecutive rounds of 74 and a 54-hole total of 225. She finished in a tie for 35th place in the individual standings. It marked her second consecutive top-35 finish; she also finished in a tie for 35th place at the fall season opening Cougar Classic.

Senior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) also played well in finishing her final two rounds at a total of four-over par.

Westrup Leads Seminoles in Final Round Of Ann Rhoads Intercollegiate.

Junior All-American tops Seminoles' leader board for 10th consecutive time.

TUSCALOOSA, AL - Junior All-American Caroline Westrup finished in a tie for 19th place in the individual standings and the Seminoles finished in a tie for 15th place in the team standings as play in the fourth University of Alabama/Ann Rhoads Intercollegiate at the NorthRiver Golf Course came to a close. It marked the 10th consecutive event that Westrup had finished as the team's individual leader as the Seminoles played their final event of the fall season.

No. 6 ranked Arkansas won the team title as the Razorbacks defeated Auburn by eight strokes. The Razorbacks took the team lead during the first round and lead wire-to-wire to earn the championship. Stacy Lewis of Arkansas, the No. 1 ranked player in the nation, won the individual title as she outdistanced So-Hyun Park of Notre Dame by two strokes.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) played her best round of the event in the third and final round as she carded a three-over par 74 to finish with a three round total of 225. The junior showed improvement throughout the entire event as she carded scores of 76-75-74 in the first, second and third rounds to earn her second rop-20 individual finish of the fall season. Westrup was in a tie for 31st round after the first round, a tie for 24th after the second round and finished in a tie for 19th place.

Freshman Macarena Silva (Santiago Silva), who shot a career-best 72 in the second round, finished in second place on the Seminoles' leader board. Her three-round total of 232 was three strokes better than her total of 235 at the Lady Tar Heel Invitational in early October - the first event of her promising Seminole career.

Florida State opens its spring season at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, P.R. on Feb. 24-26.

Seminoles' Westrup Finishes in 6th Place At Lady Puerto Rico Classic.

Junior All-American leads Seminoles for 19th time in career.

RIO GRANDE, PR - Florida State All-American Caroline Westrup finished in sixth place in the individual standings and the Seminole women's golf team finished in 10th place in the team standings as competition in the Lady Puerto Rico Women's Golf Classic at the Coco Beach Golf and Country Club was completed on Tuesday. Westrup earned the 13th top-10 finish of her career as she placed as the Seminoles' top finishing golfer for the 19th time in 21 events during her Seminole career.

Alabama rallied from fourth place and four strokes down entering the third round to claim the team championship with a three stroke victory over Louisiana State. The Crimson Tide carded the best team score of the final round to vault itself into first place. All-American and defending NCAA Champion Stacy Lewis led the event wire-to-wire to capture the individual championship with an eight-under par total of 208.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) finished in sixth place with a one-over par score of 217 for the 54-hole event. She was three-under par after the first two rounds of the event after carding scores of 70 and 71 on the par 72 course. Westrup's sixth place finish was her best since finishing in a tie for fifth place in the individual standings at 2007 NCAA East Regional Championships.

Seminole freshman Macarena Silva (Santiago, Chile) played very consistent golf through the event as she finished with scores of 75-75-76 for a career-low three-round total of 216. She established career-bests for low tournament score (216) and highest finish (tied for 34th) while carding two scores at 75 or better during the 54-hole event.

Senior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) finished the event with a four-over par score of 76 and a three-round total of 231. Her score of 76 was tied for third round-best honors among her teammates. Brummett finished in a tie for 60th place in the individual standings with teammate Lacey Agnew. Agnew (Jonesboro, Ga.) carded identical scores of 76 in the first and second rounds. Senior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) finished as the Seminoles' third highest ranking player as she finished with a three-day total of 230.

Florida State continues its schedule as it travels to play at the UCF Challenge on March 9-11 at the Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando, Fla.

Junior All-American cards 66 in final round of event.

SORRENTO, FL - 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.

All-American Westrup Leads Seminole Women's Golf Team In Final Round Of Liz Murphey Classic.

Westrup leads Seminoles in final round of power-packed event.

ATHENS, GA - Florida State University junior All-America Caroline Westrup shot a 73 in the final round and the Seminole women's golf team finished in 12th place in the team standings as play in the three-round Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic came to a close Sunday. Westrup rebounded from two sub-par rounds to finish in a tie for 22nd place in the individual standings as she led the Seminoles to their best team round of the event as they finished with their best standing of the tournament.

Georgia captured the team title as it defeated Purdue in a playoff. Tied with a three-day total of 900 upon completion of regular play with the Boilermakers, Georgia recorded four pars on the second playoff hole to win its 13th title in its home-course tournament. Despite leading by three strokes at the start of play in the final round, Georgia shot a 10-over 298 while second-place Purdue fired a 7-over 295. Those scores placed the teams in a two-way tie for first at the conclusion of play with identical marks of 36-over par 900s. Purdue teammates Christel Boeljon and Maria Hernandez shot identical scores of two-over par 218 to finish tied for the individual lead.

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) shot a one-over par 73 after two uncharacteristic scores of 80 and 78 in the first two rounds of the event. She was never more than two strokes over par during her round and finished her play with a birdie on her last hole to bring her score down to one-over par. Westrup has been the Seminoles top finisher in all seven of Florida State's events this year.

Freshman Macarena Silva (Santiago, Chile) earned the best finish of her career as she carded a two-over par 74 and finished in a tie for 24th place in the individual standings.

Seminole Women's Golf Team Finishes In Third Place At ACC Championship.

Westrup ties school record with second place individual finish.

DAYTONA BEACH, FL - Florida State finished in third place in the team standings and junior All-American Caroline Westrup finished in second place in the individual standings as play in the 20th Annual ACC Championship on the Legends Course at LPGA International came to a close on Sunday. The Seminoles' third place finish is their highest finish since they finished in third place in 2001. Westrup's second place individual finish tied the highest finish by a Seminole player in school history and was the highest since Tiffany Faucette finished in second place in 1995.

No. 2 Duke won the championship on the final hole as both teams walked on the 18th green tied after 53 holes. The Blue Devils' Amanda Blumenherst pared the hole while Virginia's Calle Nielson bogeyed the hole to give Duke the one-shot victory. The one shot victory for the Blue Devils set a championship record for smallest margin of victory eclipsing a pair of two shot wins: North Carolina over Florida State in 1992 and Wake Forest over Florida State on 1995.

Not only did Blumenherst give Duke the team title with her par but she won the individual championship for the third consecutive season. Blumenherst defeated Florida State's Caroline Westrup by one stroke for the individual championship as Westrup bogeyed the final hole.

Westrup and Blumenherst, who were playing in the same threesome for the first time during the tournament battled throughout the round. Westrup carded a two-under par 70 while Blumenherst scored a one-under par 71 in the final round. The individual championship came down to the final shot for both players.

Freshman Macarena Silva (Santiago, Chile) tie her career-low score with an even par 72 and finished with a six-over par score of 222 in her first career ACC Championship. Silva carded three birdies on the front nine and made the turn at two-under par. She finished her round with scores of par on seven of her last eight holes. Her score of 72 tied her career best for her freshman season; she also carded a 72 during the second round of the University of Alabama / Ann Rhoads Invitational during the fall of 2007. Silva finished in a tie for ninth in the individual standings.

Senior Whitney Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) saved her best round for the final day as she carded a one-under par 71 and finished with a three-day total of 224. Her score of 71 in the final round of this year's ACC Championship is the best of her career in the event. Brummett played the final 15 holes of the round under par after recording a birdie on hole No. 3. She recorded three birdies and one bogey during the round. Her score of 71 tied her score for her senior season and was only one stroke from tying her career low score of 70 which she has carded twice during her career. Brummett finished in a tie for 15th place.

Senior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C) finished the final round of her fourth career ACC Championship with a five-over par 78. She finished her round of play with 12 holes at par or better with one birdie. Junior Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) finished in a tie for 19th place with a score of 226.

The Seminoles will now await the announcement of the NCAA Regional selections on April 28. The Seminoles have advanced to the NCAA Regionals in five of the last six seasons and 14 times since 1991.

Seminole Women's Golf Team Misses Out On Trip To NCAA Championship Finals On Sudden-Death Loss To LSU.

Seminoles finish in a tie for eighth place at NCAA Central Regional Championship.

AUSTIN, TX - The Florida State University women's golf team was defeated by LSU in a one-hole playoff and did not advance to the NCAA Championship finals as play in the NCAA Central Regional Championship at the University of Texas Golf Course came to a close. The Seminoles and the Tigers finished tied for eighth in the team standings and were forced to wait nearly four hours until the round was completed before beginning the sudden-victory playoff which was won by the Tigers. With all five players teeing off of hole No. 1, the Tigers earned one birdie and four pars while the Seminoles earned five pars. The winning shot - a chip in birdie - was holed by LSU's Alexis Rather.

Florida State moved into a tie for eighth place with its best single-round team total of the event - a 297. The Seminoles were led by Caroline Westrup (even par 72) and seniors Whitney Wright (one-over par 73) and Whitney Brummett (four-over par 76). The Seminoles began the third round three stroke above the cut and closed the after tied with LSU.

"We didn't beat ourselves and it took a great golf shot to beat us," said Seminole Head Coach Debbie Dillman. "It's upsetting for me and our team that our two seniors - Whitney (Brummett) and Whitney (Wright) - had to end their careers on a playoff. But my hat is off to all of our players; they all did what they had to do to get us in the position to play in a playoff. We played a nice round of golf today, made a lot of the shots we had to make and then performed extremely well under pressure in the playoff. We put our shots where we wanted to and played the playoff hole well. They (LSU) just played one shot better. Congratulations to their players and coaching staff and our team hopes they do well at nationals."

Westrup will make her third consecutive NCAA Championships appearance and her second consecutive as an individual. She finished in a tie for fifth place in the individual standings and tied with Lauren Doughtie of NC State as the two highest finishing individuals not on a qualifying team and both advanced to the national championship finals as individuals. Westrup finished in a tie for 11th place at the 2007 NCAA finals and in a tie for 29th in the 2006 NCAA finals.

"I'm very sad that I am not going to nationals with all of my teammates," said Westrup. "It was one of my dreams to go with all of my friends to the finals. It was the last time I could have gone with two seniors (Brummett and Wright) and that would have been very special for all of us. I am going to the nationals intent on winning a national championship for all of us and for Florida State University."

Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) led the Seminoles over the final day of the regional with an even par score of 72 and a three-day total of 215. Her score is the third best regional total of her career and her score of 72 marked the eighth time in nine regional rounds that she had finished with a score of even par or better.

Westrup was consistently strong as she has been throughout her career with 17 holes at par or better (one birdie) and only one bogey during the third round. She was never above even and was below par for 11 of the 18 rounds she played. Westrup led the Seminoles with nine birdies during the three round regional championship. She begins play in the NCAA Championship at the University of New Mexico May 20-24.

Brummett, a senior who played in her final match as a Seminole, carded a four-over par 76 in the final round. She finished in a tie for 35th place with a three-round total of 226. Her regional finish marked tied her career high for a regional finish and marked the second time she had finished a regional championship in a tie for 35th place. Brummett also finished in a tie for 35th place at the 2006 NCAA East Regional Championship.

Brummett's round of 76 included two birdies and 10 holes of par or better. She birdied her final hole of the day to pull the Seminoles into their eighth place tie in the team standings. Her total of 226 marked the third consecutive tournament that she have finished with a three-round total of 226 or better.

Senior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) also closed out her career with one of her better rounds of her final season. She carded a one over par 73 in the final round of the championship and finished in a tie fir 47th place with a 229 total. Her 47th place finish was 24 spots better than her tied for 71st place finish at the 2007 NCAA East Regional Championship.

Wright's score of 73 in the final round of the event is tied for her third best round of the fall 2007 and spring 2008 seasons while her 229 total was her sixth best in 10 events this year. She improved her score each day of the regional - by four strokes on the second day and by three more strokes on the third day.

Junior Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) carded a personal tournament best 76 in the third round. She finished in a tie for 81st place to mark a 12 spot improvement from her first career regional appearance in 2007. Cousart, who is one of three players who will return to the Seminoles' line-up as a senior in 2009, played in six events this year and returns as one of the Seminoles' most experienced players next season.

Freshman Macarena Silva (Santiago, Chile) also finished in a tie for 81st place in the individual standings. She carded back-to back scores of 78 in the first and second rounds of the NCAA Central Regional. Silva, too, will return as one of the Seminoles' top players during the 2008-09 fall and spring seasons.

No. 2 ranked UCLA won the team championship with a 10 stroke advantage over No. 6 Purdue. Joining UCLA and Purdue from the Central Regional at the NCAA finals are Denver, TCU, Texas A&M, Alabama, Texas and LSU. Maria Hernandez of Purdue and Maria Jose Uribe of UCLA shared medalist honors with eight-under par scores of 208. Only six of the 108 golfers finished the 54-hole event under par.

Seminoles' Westrup Finishes In Tie For 13th Place At NCAA Women's Golf Championship.

Junior earns second highest NCAA Championship finish in school history.

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Florida State University junior Caroline Westrup shot a one-under par 71 in the final round and finished in a tie for 13th place as play in the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship on the Champions Course on the University at New Mexico Golf Club came to a close on Friday. Westrup played her best round of golf in the four round event and finished only eight strokes behind the winning individual score.

Westrup finished the event with a six-over par score of 294. She finished at even par in the first round (72) and at one under par in the final round (71). Azahara Munoz of Arizona State won the individual title as she defeated Tiffany Joh of UCLA in a playoff. Munoz and Joh finished tied in the individual standings with identical scores of one-under par 287.

Westrup played her best round of golf in the final round as she was never more than one stroke over par for the entire round. She carded a bogey on her first hole of the afternoon and then birdied two of her next three holes to move to one-under par. Westrup closed her first nine holes at one under par. She then played her second nine holes at even par to finish with a score of 71.

"I felt like I played good golf today in the final round," said Westrup. "The weather was the craziest I have ever played in. We had to stop play on hole No. 7 because there was hail the size of golf balls falling on the course. We had to wait for the hail to melt before we could make our shots."

Westrup carded a tournament-best four birdies in the fourth round after carding a total of three birdies in her second and third round combined. In her best two rounds of the tournament she carded a total of seven birdies; in her middle two rounds she carded a total of three birdies.

"I wanted to win the event or even finish in the top 10 in the final standings but I was unable to do that," said Westrup. "The middle 36 holes were tough on me. I wish the weather would have cooperated with all of the golfers in the event. I played 50 of the last 54 holes with my umbrella up."

Westrup has earned three top-30 individual finishes in her first three NCAA Championship finals appearances. She finished in a career-best tied for 11th place in 2007.

No. 2 ranked Southern California won the team championship with a six-stroke victory over UCLA. The top ranked team in the country - Duke - finished in third place and 12 strokes behind USC. The Blue Devils were playing for their fourth consecutive national championship.
