May 21, 2024

Carlsbad, Calif. – Clemson women’s golf’s historic run through the NCAA Championship ended on Tuesday, as the No. 5 seed Tigers fell 3-1-1 to the No. 4 seed USC Trojans in the Match Play Quarterfinals at the Omni La Costa North Course (6,297 yards, par 72).

Annabelle Pancake rallied from being down two early to win four-straight holes and take the match from Cindy Kou, 4&3. Melena Barrientos, playing against Catherine Park, the No. 10 ranked player in the nation and top-ranked USC player, was never down by more than one and led for three holes before ending in a tie.

Isabella Rawl dropped her match 3&2, while Chloe Holder fell 6&5 and Sydney Roberts fell 7&5.

Tuesday marked Clemson’s first-ever trip to match play at an NCAA tournament, in just the 11th year of the program.

The Tigers entered the tournament as the No. 16 overall seed and finished stroke play fifth.
