WILMINGTON, N.C. – The No. 25 Virginia women’s golf team was eliminated in the semifinals of match play at the ACC Championships by reigning champion Clemson. The Tigers downed the Cavaliers 3-2 in a match that came down to the final holes.

Amanda Sambach and Celeste Valinho picked up the two wins for Virginia. Sambach defeated Annabelle Pancake 3&2 while Valinho handed Chloe Holder a 5&4 defeat.

Clemson picked up its first two wins when Melena Barrientos defeated UVA’s Megan Propeck 2Up and Isabella Rawl downed Jaclyn LaHa 4&3.

Tied at 2-2, the contest was decided during the fifth match when Sydney Roberts took the lead on the 12th hole and held on for a 1Up victory over UVA’s Rebecca Skoler.

It marked the fourth consecutive season Virginia has advanced to match play at the championship. Wake Forest is the only other program to have also achieved that mark.

Virginia now await its NCAA Regional assignment. The NCAA announces the field for this year’s championship on Wednesday, April 24 at 2 p.m. A total of six regional sites will hold qualifying events May 6-8.
