Arkansas women’s golf junior-to-be Regina Plasencia and sophomore-to-be Summar Roachell were among 14 players vying for two spots during Monday’s qualifier for the Walmart LPGA NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G held at Pinnacle Country Club.

Roachell carded a 75, while Plasencia shot 77, as each came up just short of joining teammate Gabriela Lopez, recent graduate Emily Tubert and former Razorback and the Rolex World’s No. 1 player, Stacey Lewis. Lopez and Tubert received sponsor’s exemptions. 

Ariya Jutanugarn and Reilley Rankin came out on top, both shooting 70 in the 18-hole qualifier round at Pinnacle Country Club.
