FSU athletics

It’s Good Friday, Florida State fans. As you prepare for your Easter weekend, keep it here for the latest in FSU athletics. The news and notes section of this post will be updated throughout the day.

Lead Story

The ACC Championships got underway on Thursday for both Florida State men’s and women’s golf teams and after one day of action, both FSU squads are in second place.

The FSU men are in a 3-way tie for second place in New London, North Carolina with Duke and Virginia at -13. All three are 17 strokes back of first-place Georgia Tech, which shot an ungodly -30 as a team in the first two rounds. FSU sophomore John Pak is in second place individually at -10 — three strokes back of Georgia Tech’s Andy Ogletree.

The FSU women had the best second round of any team in Greensboro and are in sole possession of second place at +1, but that’s 10 strokes behind leader Wake Forest at -9. Amanda Doherty is pacing the Seminoles at -3. She’s in fourth place and four strokes off the lead held by Wake’s Emilia Migliaccio at -7.

Both FSU men’s and women’s golf played two rounds instead of one on Thursday to avoid inclement weather on Friday. The ACC Championships are set to wrap up with the final round on Saturday.
