Lisa and Leona Maguire are through the quarter-finals of the NCAA Division One Championship in Oklahoma where Duke will face Southern California for a place in the semi-finals in Oklahoma.

It’s the third time in the last four years that the Duke women’s golf team has advanced to the match play stage of the Championship.

Duke finished sixth overall after 72 holes of strokeplay qualifying at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater.

The top eight teams that advanced to match play were UCLA (1161), Alabama (1161), Southern California (1168), Northwestern (1173), Stanford (1180), Duke (1182), Kent State (1184) and Arizona (1185).

Arizona defeated Baylor in a playoff to claim the No. 8 seed.

In match play, No. 1 seed UCLA will face No. 8 seed Arizona; No. 2 seed Alabama will take on No. 7 seed Kent State; No. 3 seed Southern California vs. No. 6 seed Duke and No. 4 seed Northwestern against No. 5 Stanford.

Leona Maguire finished tied 13th on one-over-par 289 in her final amateur event, closing with a two-under 70 to clinch her third top 15 finish in NCAA Championship.

She finished her Duke career with 87 career rounds of even or under par, which is a Duke record and the second-most in NCAA history.

Lisa Maguire carded a 78 and was tied 79th.

Duke last played in match play in 2015 and 2016, advancing to the semifinals both years.
