Virginia's Amanda Sambach wins ACC Women's Golf title
GREENSBORO, N.C. (CBS19 Sports) -- Virginia sophomore Amanda Sambach put on a record-setting performance to become the third Cavalier golfer ever to win the ACC Championship.
Sambach shot a 14-under 202 to capture the championship at Sedgefield Country Club, the best score in the 35-year history of the championship and the best 54-hole tournament score in UVA history.
"That's pretty special, that's awesome," Sambach said, "I think the course here was pretty gettable for the most part. Like I said earlier it's a very much a second shot kind of golf course so I think I put myself in the best shots in the best box from the fairway To make birdies. I felt like this course set up pretty well for me. the high fives are really gettable. my par five scoring was really really solid. But again off the tee was really solid hit a lot of fairways hit a lot of greens. off myself with a lot of birdies So, yeah, maybe made a couple of those."
She joins former All-Americans Brittany Altomare and Lauren Coughlin as ACC Champions.
Virginia finished the championship fourth in team stroke play to advance to semifinal match play on Saturday against Wake Forest.
