NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – After leading the first round of contention, the FGCU women’s golf team dropped to fourth place on the team leaderboard following the second round of play at the 2010 A-Sun Championship on Tuesday at the Venetian Bay Golf Club. Freshman Briana Carlson is currently in fifth place, while three Eagles sit tied for 16th overall.

The Eagles, competing in their second A-Sun Championship, set a first-round scoring record with a 6-over 294, breaking Campbell’s mark of 296 set in 2007. The Blue and Green combined for a second round 298, moving their tournament total to 592 and placing them fourth overall. ETSU leads all schools with a two-round 586, after trailing FGCU by one stroke following the opening round of play.

Freshman Briana Carlson (Inverness, Fla.) is setting the pace for the Eagles with a two day scorecard of 145 (72-73), good for fifth place on the individual leaderboard. Seniors Amber Pedersen (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and Jessica Paulmann (Sarasota, Fla.), and junior Katerina Toomalatai (Palm Coast, Fla.) are in a seven-way tie for 16th overall with a score of 151; (74-77), (76-75), and (72-79) respectively.

ETSU’s Laura Jansone leads by one-stroke and would become the fifth multi-winner in league history if she stays atop the leaderboard at the conclusion of play.

The final round gets underway at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning with split tees.
