GREENSBORO, N.C. - Senior Allison Emrey carded an 8-under 208 to finish third at the 2015 ACC Women's Golf Championship at Sedgefield Country Club. Wake Forest finished tied for third as a team.
Emrey fired rounds of 70-68-70 with 12 birdies over two days in Greensboro. The senior came to the final hole tied with Virginia's Lauren Diaz-Yi for third in the individual standings. On 18, Emrey came away with a birdie while Diaz-Yi bogeyed the hole, to move Emrey in to sole possession of third place and the final medalist position.
Emrey's 54-hole score of 208 ties the lowest by any Demon Deacon in the ACC Championship. Cheyenne Woods also fired a 208 in 2011, the year she was the individual champion. Emrey is the first Deac to finish in the top five since 2012 when Olafia Kristindottir tied for second.
As a team, Wake Forest tied for third with North Carolina and Florida State. The Demon Deacons entered the final round in second place but struggled in the final 18 and dropped to the three-way tie for third. Wake Forest finished with rounds of 288-281-297.
"I'm happy for the students," said head coach Dianne Dailey. "They gave their all and that is all I could ask. I know there are some shots they want back but I am very happy with their effort. We know we are really close to being a very, very good team and we have to get back to work and prepare for regionals."
Virginia won their first ACC Championship with a 27-under team score. UVa's Briana Mao and Duke's Leona Maguire tied for the individual lead at 10-under after 56 holes. Maguire took home the title after a two-hole playoff.
Sophomore Sierra Sims tied for 15th at even par for the weekend. She finished with a 1-over 73 in the final round after opening rounds of 70 and 73. Sims birdied 18, the stroke that moved Wake Forest in to a tie for third. It was one of four birdies in the final round.
Senior Marissa Dodd was 2-under entering the final round but struggled on the final 18 and carded a 77. She finished 3-over for the weekend and tied for 21st in her final ACC Championship.
Freshman Erica Herr played a great second round of 2-under 70 but also had a hard time in the final round and carded an 80. Herr tied for 40th in the individual standings. Vinh-Hop Ngo finished her first ACC Championship with rounds of 76-76-77.
Wake Forest will await the NCAA Regional selection show Monday, April 27. The regional sites for 2015 are Raleigh, N.C., San Antonio, Texas, Notre Dame, Ind., and St. George, Utah.
