The Duke Women's Golf team next plays in the Eastern Regional tournament at Penn State from May 10 to 12.
As noted in this piece from goduke.com, the Blue Devils are seeded #3 and must finish in the top 8 teams to advance to the NCAA championships.
The team is ranked #8 nationally, and junior Lindy Duncan is ranked #1.
I do follow the women's golf team and have met the players and staff. Great gals and wonderful representatives for Duke.
Alejandra Cangrejo suffered an injury and had to withdraw from today's round. In college golf you have 5 players and count the 4 best scores, so with only 4 golfers Duke is at a severe disadvantage in the Regionals.
Duke finished the first day tied for 11th. Need to be in the top 8 ( I think) to advance to the NCAA Championships. It can be done.
Lindy Duncan is 1 over, 6 shots back in the individual competition.
Duke has a six-shot lead on the ninth place team going into the final round tomorrow. The top eight teams go to nationals.
Let's go Duke!
Looks like the women finished in a tie for 6th and will advance to the NCAA championships.
As usual, they were led by Lindy Duncan, who finished 3rd in the individual scoring.
Don't know if Cangrejo will be back for the NCAA tournament; playing with 4 is a serious disadvantage.
Duke currently in a three-way tie for sixth, having finished their third and final round. The closest teams still on the court are 12 strokes back.
Well done, ladies!
