Indianapolis, Ind.--The San José State women's golf team will make their 22nd appearance at an NCAA Regional this year as the Spartans were selected to play at the Stanford Regional.
The Spartans are one of 18 teams to play on the Stanford Golf Course at Stanford from May 5-7. The top-six teams advance to the NCAA Championship, May 20-25 at the Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Ore. The low three individuals, not on those advancing teams, will also go to the championship.
The Stanford Regional includes the defending national champion Stanford, Southern California, Arkansas, Virginia, UNLV, San Diego State, Texas Tech, Ohio State, Colorado, Wake Forest, Michigan State, North Carolina, Pepperdine, UC Riverside, Idaho, Richmond Seton Hall and the Spartans.
"We are extremely excited to be back at regionals," said San José State head coach John Dormann. "Hopefully, we can use our course knowledge and experience at Stanford to our advantage."
San José State is very familiar with the Stanford Golf Course. The Spartans played two tournaments on the course this year - Stanford Intercollegiate and the Peg Barnard Invitational. The last two times the regional has been played at Stanford, San José State has rallied in the final round of each to advance to the NCAA Championships (2010 & 2013).
The Spartans are the 14th seed at the regional and will play the first round with Pepperdine and UC Riverside beginning at 8:30 a.m. off of #10. Admission is free for all three rounds of the regional.
Three other regionals will be played in Baton Rouge, La., Bryan, Texas, and Shoal Creek, Ala.
Live scoring will be available at www.golfstat.com with a link on the Spartan web site.
