Gainesville, FL The third-ranked Virginia women’s golf team stayed in fifth place after the second round of play at the NCAA East Regional Championship taking place at the Mark Bostick Golf Course in Gainesville, Fla. Virginia shot 17-over 297 during the second round for a 36-hole total of 587. Alabama leads the field at 575 followed by Denver (583) while Tennessee and Vanderbilt are tied for third at 585, two shots ahead of the Cavaliers

Following Saturday’s final round, the top eight teams from the 21-team regional will advance to the NCAA Championships. Tulane is in sixth place behind UVa at 588 followed by Duke (591) and Georgia (592). North Carolina is in ninth place at 594.

Kristen Simpson had Virginia’s best round Friday, shooting 2-over 72 to move up to 38th overall at 149. Whitney Neuhauser continues to lead the Cavaliers on the leaderboard. She shot 74 and is 16th overall at 145. Callie Nielson also carded a 74 and is one shot behind Neuhauser in 19th place at 146. Lene Krog is 46th at 150 while Joy Kim is 69th at 153. Krog shot 77 Friday while Kim finished with a 79.

Alabama’s Camilla Lennarth enjoys a two-shot lead for medalist honors at 1-under 139.

“It was like the whole field struggled today,” said Cavalier coach Kim Lewellen. “The winds picked up and it (the course) played a lot tougher today across the board. We didn’t have our strongest day, but at the same time, when you look at the standings, we’re up near the top and that’s where we want to be going into the final round.

“When you go to a regional you want to play well, but ultimately, you want to advance to the nationals. I think our girls, while not happy with how they played today, feel good about where we are. We’ve had a lot of good final days this season and we need to experience one of those again tomorrow.”

The Cavaliers will start the third round at 7:40 a.m. from the 10th tee. During the tournament’s final round, the teams near the top half of the standings play first, in the morning wave.
