RALEIGH, N.C. – The No. 19 Virginia women’s golf team capped off play at NC State’s Wolfpack Match Play event by defeating Louisville in the consolation bracket. The third-seeded Cavaliers downed the eighth-seeded Cardinals 3-2. UVA played the tournament without Amanda Sambach and Jennifer Cleary who competed late last week at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. That duo leads the team in stroke average this season.
Megan Propeck, Maline Kraus and Celeste Valinho all picked up wins to lead Virginia to the victory. Propeck defeated Hana Ryskova 4&2, Kraus downed Rylee Suttor 2&1 and Valinho defeated Carmen Griffiths 1Up. Virginia Bossi lost her match 3&2 and Rebecca Skoler fell 1Down.
The competition was UVA’s final of the regular season. The Cavaliers will compete at the ACC Championships April 13-16 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.
