Charlottesville, Va. - The Virginia women's golf team will compete at the 29th Annual ACC Championships this weekend at The Reserve Golf Club of Pawleys Island, S.C. from April 13-15. The Cavaliers have won the last two ACC titles, but are seeded ninth in the 12-team field this season.

The Cavaliers' lineup for this year's event features senior Lauren Diaz-Yi (Thousand Oaks, Calif.), junior Maho Hayakawa (Lake Mary, Fla.) sophomores Morgan Gonzales (Chandler, Ariz.) and Anna Redding (Concord, N.C.) and freshman Julia Ford (Shrewsbury, Mass.)
Three of the Hoos have experience at the ACC Championships. Diaz-Yi helped UVA to its back-to-back titles in 2015 and 2016 with consecutive fourth-place finishes. She placed 25th her freshman season. Gonzales was 14th last year at the ACCs while Redding placed fifth.
Eight of the 12 ACC teams are currently ranked in the top 50 of the latest Golfstat rankings, including five in the top 25.

Lauren Coughlin took medalist honors last season. Briana Mao tied for first in 2015 but lost a playoff for the individual trophy.
