The No. 8 Virginia women’s golf team is the No. 2 seed for the NCAA Regional Ann Arbor site that will be held at the University of Michigan Golf Course. The 54-hole regional championship takes place May 9-11.

It marks the 16th time Virginia has received a bid to the NCAA Championships. Virginia will be looking to advance from a regional site to the NCAA Championships for the 12th time in the program’s 19-year history.

Virginia opened its season in September playing at the Michigan Golf Course during the Wolverine Invitational. UVA placed second behind the host Wolverines as sophomore Jennifer Cleary (fourth) and freshman Amanda Sambach (sixth) posted top-10 finishes.

A total of six, 12-team regional sites will determine the teams that advance to the NCAA Championships. The top four teams (24 teams total) and the low two individuals (12 individuals total) not on an advancing team from each regional site qualify for the national championships. The NCAA Championships are set for May 20-25 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The field at the Ann Arbor Regional site includes (in seed order) 1. San Jose State, 2. Virginia, 3. Michigan, 4. Arkansas, 5. UCF, 6. Virginia Tech, 7. North Carolina, 8. Washington, 9. Ohio State, 10. Pepperdine, 11. Xavier, 12. Oakland.
