Charlottesville, VA The 24th-ranked Virginia women’s golf team plays in the 11th-annual Bryan Park National Collegiate in Brown Summit, N.C. this weekend. The 18-team event runs Friday through Sunday. Teams representing the ACC, SEC, Big Ten, Southern Conference, Colonial Conference and Mountain West will compete in the 54-hole event.

A total of eight teams competing Friday through Sunday are ranked in the top 25 by Golfweek, including Duke (1), Florida (5), Auburn (11), Arkansas (12), Wake Forest (14), Tennessee (17), Michigan State (19) and Virginia.

College of Charleston, Florida State, Furman, UNC Greensboro, North Carolina, NC State, Penn State, South Carolina, Texas Christian and UNC Wilmington round out the field.

Teams will utilize a shotgun start at 10 a.m. Friday to start play. The Cavalier lineup will include Calle Nielson, Lene Krog, Jennie Arseneault, Joy Kim and Whitney Neuhauser.

Virginia placed 10th at the tournament last season led by Leah Wigger’s eight-place effort.

Duke has won the event six times since the tournament started in 1998.

Because the Champions Course is undergoing renovations in preparation for the 2010 USGA Men’s Publinx Championship, the tournament will be held on the Bryan Park Players Course.

The tournament is UVa’s final regular season event before competing at the ACC Championships April 18-20.
