Oct. 7, 2002
Franklin, Ind.- The K-State women's golf team is in 11th place after two rounds at the Shootout at the Legends in Franklin, Ind. After a tough first round, the Wildcats carded a 301 in the afternoon round to give them a combined score of 619 (318-301).
"This morning was not so good, but we turned it around," head coach Kristi Knight said. "We just had some big numbers this morning. We didn't get it going and just hit the ball in some bad places. But we battled back in the second round. In a tournament like this, shooting a round like this morning is going to hurt."
Senior Miranda Smith was low for the Wildcats. After shooting a 79 in the first round, Smith carded a 1-over 73 to put her in a four-way tie for 22nd place.
Kent State is the team leader after two rounds, carding a combined 589 (301-288). Indiana is just three stokes behind the Golden Flashes. Indiana's Karen Dennison is in first place among the individuals. The junior shot a 6-under 138 to give her a solid 6-stroke lead.
K-State's Christine Boucher carded a 154 (80-74) to tie for 26th place. One stroke behind Boucher is senior Elise Carpentier, who is tied for 36th. Junior Karen Quintelier finished in a 7-way tie for 57th place.
"It was a long day," Knight said. "The pace of play was not great, but we turned it around this afternoon. We will just take the confidence from the second round into tomorrow's competition."
The third and final round of the Shootout at the Legends tees off from the Legends of Indiana Tuesday at 8 a.m.
