Finne-Ipsen playing their best at the best time

Finne-Ipsen, who is only three grades (B, A-, A-) from a perfect 4.0 average for his entire college career, was nothing short of spectacular in class. She has twice won the Bonnie Cone Award (in 2020 and 2021) for Outstanding All-Around Student Athlete at UNC Charlotte. The Cone Award is given to the UNCC student-athlete who has achieved the highest cumulative grade point average during the year. Finne-Ipsen was also named to the Scholar-Athlete Team by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association twice during her career.

Academically at Florida State, she earned President’s List Honors (4.0 GPA) and Dean’s List Honors (3.5+) in her two semesters as than Seminole and has a career GPA of 3.956.

“I’m super excited to graduate in December,” Finne-Ipsen said. “Earning a degree while playing high-level sport is something I’m very proud of, and I know my family is too. I’m particularly proud of having graduated while being in another country and away from my family.

Finne-Ipsen’s most significant contribution to Florida State’s success and the No. 10 national ranking almost certainly lies in his ability to quickly and seamlessly assimilate into the family culture that is so important to the Seminole program.

Her contributions as a teammate were quickly realized by senior Beatrice Wallin.

“Cece is a great teammate,” said three-time All-American Wallin. “Having him in the lineup last week (at regionals) was great, and his hard work paid off. I think good golf from any of our players helps the team build confidence, especially for the Nationals starting Friday. I think we all have confidence and know what we are capable of. We are all very excited to start playing, and I think Cece and all of our players will do very well. I can’t wait to play alongside all my teammates. »

Finne-Ipsen’s goal is to play professional golf and will attend the LPGA’s Q-School in the fall in hopes of earning her pro status.

Over the next week, she will focus on the deep bunkers that guard the greens crowned on the Raptor course at Grayhawk.

“What excites me the most is having the chance to compete against the best female golfers at the collegiate level and having the opportunity to play for a national championship with my teammates,” Finne-Ipsen said. “I have to play the course to my strengths and then do my best.”
