Women's Golf Turns In Record-Breaking Performance at Great Smokies Women's Intercollegiate

Thursday, October 25, 2001

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- The East Tennessee State women's golf team came in third out of 25 teams at the Great Smokies Women's Intercollegiate from the Waynesville Country Club in Waynesville, N.C. The Bucs shot a two round 614 (312-302) to finish just two shots behind team champion, Elon College. The second-round 302 was the best round in ETSU history, surpassing a 304 shot in the Penn State Nittany Lion Invitational on Oct. 2, 1999. Individually, the Buccaneers had four players finish within ten strokes of the lead. Senior Catalina Zuluaga (Cali, Colombia) led the way for ETSU, finishing in a tie for ninth (78-73=151) at 7-over par, five strokes behind individual champion, Line Cordes of host Western Carolina. Freshman Alysa Few (London, Ontario, Canada) notched her second consecutive top-20 finish, tying for 16th (79-74=153) at 9-over par. Senior Mimmie Dymling (Sollentuna, Sweden) and sophomore Kristin Fletcher (Rogersville, Tenn.) tied for 26th at 11-over par. Freshman Danielle O'Reilly (Whistler, British Columbia, Canada) was the final Buccaneer finisher, tying for 68th (79-85=164) at 20-over par. "We have made huge strides as a team these past couple of weeks," said ETSU coach Katie Weiss. "We decided when I got here last December that to bring this team and the program as a whole up to where it needs to be, we have to take steps. I feel this tournament us one step closer to where we want to be."
