Bad news is the Hogs have slipped out of the lead on the front nine,
Good news is that they’re still in the top four and have a six-shot cushion over fifth-place Washington. Top four after tomorrow advance to the NCAA national tournament,
Virginia , is -3 today and has taken over the team lead at +7, followed by Michigan and San Jose State at +10 and the Hogs at +11. SJS is the highest ranked team in the field (#5), followed by UVa at #8, Hogs are #20, the fourth highest in the Ann Arbor field, so if the rankings hold, they would qualify.
Currently the Hogs are counting four +1 scores on today’s round.
Per Tom Murphy’s column this morning…
“The top five teams after 54 holes from each of six NCAA regionals will make up the 30-team field for the NCAA championships, scheduled for May 20-25 in Scottsdale, Ariz.”
So which is it?
From the NCAA website:
After regional play wraps up Wednesday, May 11, the top four teams and two individuals in each regional will advance to the 2022 NCAA DI Women’s Golf Championship at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Looking back at the 2021 NCAAT, there were 24 teams entered. And the Rebnecks somehow won the NC.
Hogs are now third with a 10-shot cushion over U-Dub in fifth. UVa and SJS still 1-2, Meechigan dropped to fourth on their home course (otherwise known as the parking lot for the Big House, although unlike WMS, they don’t actually park on the fairways). Miriam Ayora and Julia Gregg are both even par today for the Hogs; Ela Anacona is +1, Ffion Tynan (yes I spelled that correctly) is +2.
Hogs are paired with Washington and Michigan today, BTW, so they are gonna know how they stand,
Now have a 14-shot cushion over the Huskies early on the back nine
Second round over now, Hogs are third, but with a 16-shot cushion over Washington.
Even if the Huskies shot -8 tomorrow and we shot +7, they wouldn’t catch us. And Virginia Tech is another five shots back of them.
Ela Anacona is tied for third in the individual race at even par after a 73 today. Julia Gregg is tied for 8th at +3.
