Oct. 14, 2002
Wichita, Kan.- The Kansas State women's golf team is in first place after two rounds at the Sunflower Invitational at the par-72, 5,953-yard Willowbend Golf Club. The Wildcats shot a combined score of 603 (304-299) to place them one stroke ahead of second place Texas-El Paso. K-State's afternoon round of 299 was the team's best round of the season.
"It was nice to get out to a solid start," head coach Kristi Knight said. "It was a good day. The course is set up for them to score. Although we are in a good position, every one of the players know they can do better. They all felt like they left some strokes out there."
Junior Christine Boucher is in second place after carding a two-round total of 147 (74-73). Boucher is just three strokes behind North Texas' Randi Gauthier, who shot an even par 144 and sits atop the individual leader board through 36 holes.
Senior Miranda Smith and junior Karen Quintelier are both tied for ninth place as each shot 151. Smith birdied three of her last five holes in the second round to fire a 2-over 74. Senior Elise Carpentier is in a five-way tie for 32nd place after finishing up at 155 (80-75).
Sophomore Sarah Heffel is tied for 44th place by shooting a 158. Sophomore Stephanie Limoges and freshman Julie Kim are competing as individuals. Limoges is tied with Heffel for 44th and Kim is tied for 70th place after shooting 165.
