Oct. 8, 2002
Franklin, Ind.- The K-State women's golf team finished in 10th place at the Shootout at the Legends in Franklin, Ind. The Wildcats carded a 302 in their final round today to move up a spot from yesterday's standings. K-State finished with a combined score of 921 (318-301-302).
"I'm proud of us for coming back after yesterday's first round," head coach Kristi Knight said. "In the second two rounds, we played well, but we can't shoot a round like yesterday morning and expect to be competitive. Those days happen and we move on. We have time to recover. Later on this year, we will get a chance at the same teams we faced this tournament."
Kent State won its fourth straight tournament this year by shooting a 299 today to finish seven strokes ahead of second place Missouri. The Golden Flashes finished with a combined score of 888 (301-288-299). Indiana's Karen Dennison won the individual title. The junior finished the three-round tournament at 4-under 212.
K-State's Christine Boucher jumped eight places by carding a 1-under 71 in the final round. Boucher finished in a 3-way tie for 14th place with a combined score of 225 for her third top 20 finish this year. Senior Miranda Smith shot 76 in the final round to tie for 22nd place.
Junior Karen Quintelier finished in a tie for 42nd place. Three strokes behind Quintelier was senior Elise Carpentier, who tied for 55th place. Sophomore Sarah Heffel shot a 245 to tie for 78th. In her first tournament this season, sophomore Stephanie Limoges also tied for 78th place. Limoges, who played as an individual, carded a combined score of 245 (83-82-80).
"I am proud of Stephanie," Knight said. "She did better every day. This will give her some confidence and she will learn to deal with her nerves. She battled and always came of the course with a smile on her face."
The Wildcats are back in action Oct. 14-15 for the Marilyn Smith Sunflower Invitational in Wichita, Kan. at the Willowbend Golf Club.
