MSU women's golf sweeps awards for the first time in program history

Wake Forest's women's golf team, which has struggled with injuries and attrition this spring, is headed to the Division I women's regionals and is the sixth seed in Athens, Ga.

Minnesota's Emie Peronnin and Nebraska's Kate Smith will compete as individuals in the Columbus Regional.

From each regional, the top six teams and top three individuals not on a qualifying team will advance to the NCAA Finals, to be held Friday through Wednesday, May 19-24, at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill.

The Cardinal will be one of 18 teams competing May 8-10 at the University of New Mexico Championship Course. The three other 2017 regional sites include the Albuquerque Regional, the Lubbock Regional and the Athens Regional.

Four regional tournaments will be conducted May 8-10 to determine the championships field.


"The most important thing is to qualify for the final", USC 21st-year head coach Andrea Gaston said, something her Trojans have done 19 years in a row.

Elena Hualde. Auburn women's golf vs Tennessee on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017 in Auburn, Ala. The Mustangs are also seeking their first NCAA Championship appearance since 1992. However, I'm very excited for Lisa to have her season extended with her individual bid. Princeton's 891 team score set a program record for a three-round event and was one off the Ivy record for a three-round championship, set by Harvard in 2008.

The Hoyas put four players among the top-10 finishers at the BIG EAST Championship, led by junior Lauren Gros (Windermere, Fla./Windermere Prep), who tied for second place at 6-over par 222. She finished the championship as the runner-up with a 5-under-par 211. Her 73.44 scoring average is second only to Burnham on the team and also posted the best Golfweek/Sagarin Big Ten player rating among conference freshmen with 72.77.

The Wildcats boast four top-five finishes in its nine stroke-play tournament format events, plus a win over Louisville in the Battle of the Bluegrass. An individual champion will be named after the fourth round while the top eight teams will advance to match play quarterfinals and semifinals on May 23.
