Chapel Hill, N.C. - The Virginia women’s golf team wrapped up its play at the Tar Heel Invitational with an eighth-place finish in the 18-team field. UVA shot 7-over 295 during Sunday’s final round for a 54-hole total of 11-over 875. Wake Forest won the team title at 854.

The Cavaliers were led by sophomore Morgan Gonzales (Chandler, Ariz.), who finished 17th at 2-over 218. Gonzales also had UVA’s best final-round score, shooting 1-under 71. It marked the first time in Gonzales’ career she has posted the team’s best tournament finish.
