Indianapolis, Ind.--The San José State women's golf team will make their 23rd appearance at an NCAA Regional this year as the Spartans were selected to play at the NCAA Columbus Regional.
The Spartans are one of 18 teams to play on the Scarlet Course at The Ohio State University Golf Club from May 8-10. The top-six teams advance to the NCAA Championship, May 19-24 at the Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar, Grove, Illinois. The low three individuals, not on those advancing teams, will also go to the championship.
The Columbus Regional includes Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Arkansas, Colorado, Texas A&M, Purdue, Ohio State, Michigan, San Jose State, Houston, Louisville, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Old Dominion, Delaware, Missouri State and Cleveland State.
"We are extremely excited to be back at regionals," said San José State head coach John Dormann. "We will be playing on a new course for us at the regional, so we will have to familiarize ourselves quickly with the Scarlet Course. The course is historically a tough course and pars are at a premium which is a strength of our team."
The Spartans are the 10th seed at the regional and will play the first round with Houston and Louisville beginning at 7:30 a.m. Eastern/4:30 a.m. Pacific off of #10. Admission is free for all three rounds of the regional.
Three other regionals will be played in Lubbock, Texas, Athens, Ga., and Albuquerque, N.M.
Live scoring will be available at www.golfstat.com with a link on the Spartan web site.
