Ronderos, who birdied a team-high six holes this week, will now wait to see if she qualifies for the NCAA Regionals. The senior finished the spring season with a 74.29 stroke average. The last Cane for qualify to Regionals was Tina Miller in 2003.

Fellow senior Christina Hirano ended her ACC Championship with a final round score of 78 to finish in a tie for 27th place. She finished her final spring as a Cane with a 76.53 stroke average.

Junior Patricia Arana, a transfer from Kennesaw State, finished her first ACC Championship in a tie for 30th place. She ended the tournament strong, shooting even par on the back nine on Sunday. Check HurricaneSports.com later on to view her updated journal from Greensboro.

Freshman Carina Cuculiza ended the year finishing all but one event Miami played in this season. The experience of playing in the ACC Championship as a first-year will help her moving forward.

 Junior Jennifer Hirano was forced to sit out Sunday’s final round with the wrist injury that has been bothering her all year.

 North Carolina (875) easily took home the team title by defeating second-place Duke by 24 strokes. Wake Forest’s Cheyenne Woods, niece of Tiger Woods, won the tournament as an individual by seven strokes.

From the ACC:

The ACC, on behalf of our women’s golf teams, donated a variety of children’s books to Millis Road Elementary School in Greensboro, N.C. as part of ACC Community Connections initiative.  This year the Atlantic Coast Conference instituted an initiative known as ACC Community Connections, which pairs ACC teams and local schools to teach the importance of reading and other life lessons to the children in our championship communities.  Russell Harper, Principal of Millis Road accepted the donation of books in a brief ceremony Sunday, at the 18th green, just before the championship trophy presentation.
