UVa Women's Golf Reflects on First Ever ACC Championship
The UVa women's golf team posed for pictures Monday at Birdwood golf course after winning the ACC Championship for the first time ever this past weekend.
The 11th ranked Wahoos turned in the greatest performance in the 27-year history of the ACC tournament shooting a 27-under par 837, the lowest score in ACC tournament history. Virginia beat second-place Duke by 26 strokes.
UVa senior Briana Mao finished at 10-under 206, the best 54-hole total in UVa history.
Mao says, "Having fun, you're automatically happy and that automatically makes you loose and be able to hit a shot. We're all really good players and its been a long road and we've worked really hard so I was really happy."
UVa head coach, Kim Lewellen says, "To win an ACC championship, to bring that back to Virginia... Virginia's never had an ACC championship and to do it in the style that they did it in, yes they wanted it, they were prepared for it, and they went down there thinking that way."
By winning the ACC Championship, the Cavaliers get an automatic berth into the NCAA Championships.
