Chapel Hill, N.C. - The 27th-ranked Virginia women's golf team finished 15th at the Tar Heel Invitational that wrapped up Sunday in Chapel Hill, N.C. UVa's 54-hole total of 31-over 895 included a final round effort of 12-over 300. Duke won the 18-team tournament at 7-under 857.

Virginia was led by Portland Rosen, who placed eighth at 1-under 215. She carded a final round score of even par 72. The finish marked the fourth time in Rosen's career she has posted a top-10 finish. It was her best tournament performance since she was the runner-up at Flordia's Gator Invitational last March.
