Ten and one isn’t a win-loss record. What is it? It’s part of a trend. For the second year in a row the ACC has placed double digit teams in the NCAA Women’s Golf Regionals. And, the one? It’s a win as well as the bids included a spot for a conference individual to compete. Teams from the conference will represent in each of the four regional sites. Ultimately, only six teams out of the 18 in each location will advance. Just three individuals will advance from each regional to the Championship.
Duke, who is ranked No. 2 nationally will be the top seed in the Auburn Regional. In addition to the Blue Devils, the No. 3 seed are the Florida State Seminoles, the No. 5 seed are the Virginia Cavaliers and the No. 7 seed are the Clemson Tigers.
Miami will have the most distance to cover as the team travels to the Cle Elum Regional hosted by the University of Washington. The top seed, representing the PAC-12 is USC. Holding down the No. 6 seed are the Hurricanes.
Stanford heads east as the No. 1 seed of the East Lansing Regional. ACC teams include No. 9 seed North Carolina and No. 11 seed Louisville. East Lansing is where Emma Albrecht of Notre Dame will compete individually. Albrecht is the No. 2 seed among the six participants who hope to advance to the championship rounds.
Three teams from the conference round out the regional competition. The Norman Regional features Texas (Austin) as the No. 1 seed. In the mix is No. 2 seed Wake Forest, No. 12 seed Virginia Tech and No. 13 seed NC State.
