The Hurricanes golf team was in Daytona Beach Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to compete in the ACC Women’s Golf Championship at the Legends Course of the LPGA International.

The team finished in 8th place out of the 9 teams.

Duke, led by Amanda Blumenhurts who won her 3rd straight ACC title, claimed its 13th straight ACC championship title with 871 strokes.  VA finished only one stroke behind Duke.

The Canes were led by Christina Hirano who competed in her first ACC Championship–she finished in a tie for 15th place (73-76-75-224). On the other hand, Steward was competing in her final collegiate tournament; she finished in a tie for 25th place (80-76-76-232).

Over the three rounds, Hirano remained within the top 15 players, finishing in a tie for 8th place along with senior Hagen Weintraub after Friday’s round one, and then sitting in a tie for 14th place after round two on Saturday.

Final results of the rest of the Hurricanes golfers:

Maria Ronderos–tied for 33rd (74-77-83-234); Hagen Weintraub–39th (73-86-84-243); Brooke Stuart–45th (92-93-87-272).
