Irish compete in first ACC championships

Notre Dame will head to the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., this weekend to embark on its first appearance in the ACC championships.

The Irish — coming off of two-straight finishes outside the top 10 (11th at the LSU Golf Classic and T-13th at the Ole Miss-hosted Rebel Collegiate) — will look to ready the ship as they head into this weekend’s tournament.

No. 3 Duke is the favorite heading into the conference championship tournament with No. 14 Clemson also landing a spot in the last top-25 poll. In addition, three other ACC schools — North Carolina, Miami and Florida State — received votes in the poll.

During the spring campaign, two golfers have made the leaderboard for Notre Dame. Sophomore Talia Campbell led the Irish at the Central District Invitational in February with a 219 (+3) before leading the team for the second time of the spring two weeks ago by carding a 221 (+5) in Oxford, Miss. On consecutive weekends in March — at the Clover Cup in Mesa, Ariz., and at the LSU Golf Classic — senior Kristina Nhim grabbed the low score by an Irish golfer, including assuming medalist honors as the individual champion at the Clover Cup after shooting a 213 (-3).

Last time out at the Rebel Intercollegiate, the Irish were able to get all four scored golfers at or below a 230 score over the three days as freshman Jordan Ferreira and junior Ashley Armstrong joined Campbell and Nhim in the scoring spots for the Irish.

The first day of the ACC championships is Friday in Greensboro, N.C., with play continuing Saturday and Sunday.
