Wake Forest Continues Lead in Second Round of ACC Women's Golf Championship

April 17, 2010

GREENSBORO, NC (theACC.com) - Wake Forest continues to lead at the 2010 ACC Women’s Golf Championship at Sedgefield Country Club (Par 71, 6,355 yards), which is hosting the championship for the second consecutive year.

Wake Forest shot a 1-over-par 285 and was led again in the second round by freshman Michelle Shin (Cape Coral, Fla.) and sophomore Cheyenne Woods (Phoenix, Ariz.), who are tied for first place with a two-day total of 2-under-par 140. After two rounds, Wake Forest is in first place with a three-over-par 571.

“I’m so proud of the team for the way that they played today,” said Wake Forest head coach Dianne Dailey. “The course played really tough today and the wind came up in the afternoon and it was swirling, making club selection really tough. I think our students are really working hard on their course management and it’s paying off.”

“I played really steady again today,” said Cheyenne Woods. “I made a couple of birdies on the front nine and then had all pars on the back which is a little unusual for me. It’s a little frustrating but at the same time, I can’t be mad because I’m tied for the lead. I had a couple of birdie chances that I let slip but I also made some really nice par saves so it all evened-out.”

Duke and Virginia are tied in second place for the second consecutive day with an 18-over-par 586 score. North Carolina is in fourth place with a score of 593, Florida State is fifth at 599, Maryland is sixth at 604, NC State is seventh at 605, Miami is eighth at 642 and Boston College is ninth with a 647 score.

Individually, Virginia freshman, Brittany Altomare (Shrewsbury, Mass.) is in third place at one-under-par 141 after rounds of 72 and 69. Four individuals, Duke freshman Stacey Kim (Columbus, Ga.), Virginia junior Calle Nielson (Nashville, Tenn.), North Carolina senior Kate Thomas (Murwillumbah, Australia), and Wake Forest senior Dolores White (Lakeland, Fla.) are tied for fourth place with a score of 143 (+1).

Second round pairings will start at 8:00am with the group of NC State, Miami and Boston College. The second wave, which includes North Carolina, Florida State and Maryland start at 8:50am and the final grouping of Wake Forest, Duke and Virginia will start at 9:40am.
