Cavaliers Set for Title Chase at ACC Championships

Charlottesville, VA The third-ranked Virginia women’s golf team plays in the 21st annual Atlantic Coast Conference Championship April 17-19 in Greensboro, N.C. at the historic Sedgefield Country Club. The 54-hole tournament will feature 18 holes of competition per day at the par-71, 6,355-yard course that once hosted the Greater Greensboro Open and was the site of the founding of the conference. The Cavaliers are paired with Duke and Florida State during Friday’s opening round. Play begins at 8:30 a.m. each day.

Duke has dominated the championship winning the title every year since 1996. The Blue Devils own a total of 16 ACC titles while Wake Forest has claimed three and North Carolina one.

Last season Virginia came the closest to ending the Blue Devils current win streak. Duke claimed the title by one shot over Virginia after the two teams entered the final day of play tied for first place. Duke finished at 871 while the Cavaliers were second at 872 at the LPGA’s International Legends Course in Daytona Beach, Fla. Duke’s Amanda Blumenherst took medalist honors at 212 while UVa’s Calle Nielson was third at 216.

Virginia’s lineup will include Jennie Arseneault, Lene Krog, Kristen Simpson, Whitney Neuhauser and Calle Nielson. Neuhauser leads UVa with a 72.76 stroke average, the best in the ACC. Arseneault is second on the team at 73.05 followed by Nielson at 73.67, Krog at 75.25 and Simpson at 76.73.

This year’s tournament includes five teams ranked in Golfstat’s top-50. In addition to the No. 3 Cavaliers, North Carolina is No. 10, Wake Forest ranks No. 11, Duke is No. 12 and NC State is No. 35.

Live scoring of the tournament will be on Golfstat.com.
