Charlottesville, VA - Hoping to get in its first full tournament this season, the 17th-ranked Virginia women's golf team travels to Chapel Hill this week for the 34th annual Tar Heel Invitational October 9-11 at UNC Finley Golf Course, which features a par-72, 6,285-yard layout. Tee times begin at 9 a.m. Friday and Saturday with teams starting off both the No. 1 and No. 10 tees. There will be a shotgun start at 9:15 a.m. on Sunday.

The field of 18 teams includes No. 12 Alabama, No. 2 Auburn, No. 11 Denver, No. 14 Duke, East Carolina, No. 16 Florida State, Kent State, No. 26 Louisville, No. 4 Michigan State, No. 27 North Carolina, NC State, No. 20 South Carolina, No. 22 Tennessee, Texas A&M, UNC Wilmington, No. 23 Vanderbilt and No. 24 Wake Forest.

Virginia is coming off a 12th-place finish at the rain-shortened Mason Rudolph Intercollegiate. Freshman Nicole Agnello led the Cavaliers with a 40th-place performance. She and fellow first year Brittany Altomare lead the team in stroke average at 73.75.
