AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Virginia Tech women’s golf team finished 13th at the Valspar Invitational hosted by Augusta University, Saturday-Sunday, at Forest Hills Golf Club (par 72, 6,244 yards). Due to heavy rain, Sunday’s final round was canceled.

The Hokies tallied a 604 (309-295) to place 13th in the 14-team field. Second-ranked Wake Forest claimed the team title at 13-under 563 (279-284). Host Augusta was the runner-up at 2-under 574 (286-288).
