Tuesday’s quarterfinals unfolded in an unanticipated way: eighth-seed Arizona prevailed over first-seed Stanford when the Cats’ Gile Bite Starkute’s massive putt on the 19th hole clinched a 3-2 win.

The match of the day, however, took place in the morning when No. 4 Ole Miss topped No. 5 Texas 3-2 that required two 20-plus-hole struggles to decide the match. Ole Miss’ Andrea Lignell won a 22-hole match over Kaityln Papp, and then Rebel Smilla Sonderby won a 21-hole match over Ashleigh Park.

The extra holes left Ole Miss with little time to get ready for its match against Arizona, but the ragged Rebels took control early against the waiting Wildcats. Two players jumped out to three-hole leads within four holes.

“There was a lot of golf today that’s for sure and I’m just really proud of the girls, they didn’t give up,” said Rebel head coach Kory Henkes. “The match against Texas was incredible, they really pushed through and to see freshman Smilla Sonderby just step up to the plate when she’s played in two tournaments this entire season so I’m incredibly proud of her and the entire team for really pulling their weight today.”
