ANN ARBOR, Mich. – With a 72 (+1) from junior Hailey Borja and senior Ashley Lau‘s second straight 73 (+2), the 18th-ranked University of Michigan women’s golf team posted a 300 total Tuesday (May 10) and is fourth with a 593 36-hole total at the NCAA Ann Arbor Regional being played at the UM Golf Course.

With the top four teams and top two individuals from a non-qualifying team moving onto the NCAA Finals in Scottsdale, Ariz, the Maize and Blue plays the final round with Washington (293-305 / 598) and Ohio State (305-304 / 609). The trio will tee off at 8 am from the No. 1 tea.

After opening the regional with a 293 in windy conditions at UM Golf Course in Monday’s first round, the Michigan continued to play through the gusty conditions on its home course Tuesday. Borja, who was two-under through nine holes, highlighted the Wolverines’ play throughout the front side. However, UM managed only four birdies and UM made the turn to the backside at six-over par.

Moving to the back-nine, Lau recorded four of the Wolverines’ six birdies to card a second straight 73. Adding in Borja’s 72 (+1), UM tallied 300 to give Michigan a two-day tally of 593. With that total, Michigan holds a five-shot advantage over Washington for the final advancing spot.

After Monday’s opening 73 (+2), Borja used 13 pars and two birdies on her final three holes to counter three bogeys and finish at 72 (+1), moving up five positions to end the day tied for eighth at 145. Playing her back-nine at three-over in Monday’s first round, Lau adjusted with four birdies and closed two-under Tuesday and tied for 13th at 146.

Rounding out the UM starting five, junior Mikaela Schulz is tied for 27th (74-76 / 150), sophomore Monet Chun is tied for 35th (73-79 / 152) and senior Sophia Trombetta is tied for 59th (83-79 / 162).

No. 8 Virginia used just the fifth sub-par women’s team total (281, -3) on UM’s home course to move up three spots and take the regional lead with a 575 (294-281). No. 4 San Jose State’s even-par 284 has them second at 578 (294-284), while No. 20 Arkansas is holding onto the third spot at 582 (291-291).
