Golf places eighth out of 18 at Liz Murphey Classic

The No. 3 Virginia women’s golf team placed eighth Sunday at Georgia’s Liz Murphey Classic in Athens, Ga. After rain cancelled the first two days of play, the 18-team tournament — which featured a dozen teams ranked in Golfweek’s top 25 — was reduced to just 18 holes. No. 7 Auburn won the tournament with an 11-over 299, seven shots ahead of the Cavaliers.

Sophomore Calle Nielson and senior Jennie Arseneault led Virginia and tied for fifth-place individually, shooting 2-over 74. Senior Lene Krog finished 30th at 77, and junior Whitney Neuhauser shot 81 for 67th place. Senior Kristen Simpson rounded out the Cavaliers in 75th place with an 82, and sophomore Joy Kim — playing as a non-scoring individual — placed 88th with an 85.

Virginia will play its last regular-season tournament this weekend at Brown Summit, N.C. at the Bryan National Collegiate.
