Charlottesville, Va. – The Virginia women’s golf team caps its fall schedule this weekend with its annual trek to Wilmington, N.C. for the 18th annual Landfall Tradition held Friday through Sunday, Oct. 25-27, at the par-72, 6,140-yard Country Club of Landfall.
A total of 18 teams will compete on the course that borders the Intracoastal Waterway near Wrightsville Beach. In addition to host UNCW and the Cavaliers, the field includes Alabama, UCF, Florida State, Furman, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, NC State, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Purdue, South Carolina and Virginia Tech.
Virginia’s lineup for this year’s tournament includes senior Julia Ford (Shrewsbury, Mass.), junior Beth Lillie (Fullerton, Calif.), sophomores Haeley Wotnosky (Wake Forest, N.C.) and Riley Smyth (Cary, N.C.) and freshman Virginia Bossi (Como, Italy).
Last season, UVA was fourth at the tournament behind Lillie’s 11th-place finish. As a freshman, she was the co-medalist at the rain-shortened event. She tied Duke’s Ana Belac for medalist honors as both players completed 36 holes at 9-under 135. She became the first freshman in UVA history to win a multi-team tournament.
The Cavaliers open play Friday at 9:10 a.m. from the 10th tee. UVA will be paired with UCF and Michigan State during the tournament’s opening round. Saturday’s second round starts at 8:30 a.m. and Sunday’s final round features a shotgun start at 8:45 a.m.
