Wake

Wake Forest's women won its second straight Bryan National on Sunday.

The Wake Forest women’s golf team rolled to the Bryan National Collegiate championship at Bryan Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Deacons finished 34 under par for 54 holes to win by 32 shots over North Carolina.

Senior Jennifer Kupcho and sophomore Emilia Migliaccio shared medalist honors as they tied at 12 under.

The Deacons set an ACC record for a 54-hole tournament with their winning score breaking the 33 under set by Duke in 2017.

Coach Kim Lewellen of the Deacon said: “We could see them trending in a very positive way all spring. The weather has been helpful over the last month to allow us to practice on some things that we needed to tighten up. Add that with young ladies who are already very talented, and have great team chemistry.”

Also helping the Deacons was Letizia Bagnoli, who shot a final round 70 to finish in third place at 5-under and her first career top-10. Siyun Liu had a final round 69 to finish tied for fourth and Vanessa Knecht shot 69 on Sunday to finish tied for eighth and her first career top 10.

Kupcho has nine career wins, one behind the school record of 10 by Stephanie Neill, who played at Wake Forest from 1992 to 1995.

Kupcho wound up shooting three straight rounds of 68 and Migliaccio shot rounds of 67-69-68 for her third career victory.
