The North Carolina women’s golf team finished ninth in the NCAA San Francisco Regional on Wednesday, failing to advance to the NCAA Championships and ending its spring season.
North Carolina entered the regional as the No.6 seed and faced five other teams ranked in the Golfstat top-25.
The Tar Heel golfers for the tournament were Brynn Walker, Kelly Whaley, Ava Bergner, Bryana Nguyen and Mariana Ocano. After the first round, the team combined for a score of one-over-par and had 14 birdies, good enough to tie the Tar Heels for seventh place. In the second round, the Tar Heels shot four-over-par, which left them tied in seventh place and seven strokes away from the lead.
Only the top-six teams advanced to the NCAA Championship, in Stillwater, Okla., so the third round was its last chance to move up a spot and break into the top-six.
After the third round, North Carolina shot two-over-par. For the tournament, the team shot a combined seven-over-par to finish right in the middle of the field.
