Kiawah Island, S.C. – One round remains at the 2013 Edwin Watts/Kiawah Island Classic at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, S.C. and the FGCU women’s golf team sits in 18th place in the 32-team field. Led by sophomore Georgia Price’s (Winchester, England/Fort Myers HS) who sit in a tie for 43rd after shooting an 81 (9-over par) on day two.

“Today we really had it going on the front nine and struggled on the back. I feel like we just started thinking about our score too much and it cost us,” said head coach Sarah Trew. “We talked about the things we needed to improve on and are ready to play better tomorrow.”

Host College of Charleston leads the tournament after two rounds with a total score of 596. Campbell (600), Richmond (605), Troy (610) and Daytona State College (612) secure the top five spots on the leaderboard.

Price has led the Green and Blue through the first two rounds of competition. The sophomore finished the second round with a 9-over par (81), good for a tie for 43rd place in the 172-player field.

Redshirt freshman Kristin Swindell (Bradenton, Fla./Braden River HS) finished the afternoon tied for 48thth place with a 6-over par 78, while freshman Sara Detlefsen (Eagan, Minn./Minnesota Virtual Academy HS) sits in a tie for 56th with a second round of 80 (8-over par).
