Women’s golf headed to West Regional

The University of Denver women’s golf program has been selected to play in the West Regional at the Stanford Golf Course May 9–11, the NCAA announced Monday evening. Monday’s selection is Denver’s 12thstraight NCAA Regional bid.

“We are looking forward to competing at Stanford for Regionals next week,” head coach Lindsay Hulwick said. “This is the type of course that we can be successful on, and I’m looking forward to getting back to the course at practice this week. We have a few things to work on over the next week before we leave for Palo Alto.”

DU will be joined at the West Regional by USC, Arizona, Vanderbilt, Purdue, Stanford, Georgia, Baylor, Texas A&M, Pepperdine, LSU, South Carolina, Ohio State, Oregon, UNLV, California, Florida State, Miami, San Jose State, Harvard, Kent State, Northern Arizona, North Dakota State and Long Island.

The top eight teams and the top two individuals from non-qualifying teams from each of the three regionals will qualify for the NCAA Championships at the University of Georgia Golf Course May 21–24. Denver has made three appearances as a team at the NCAA Championships.

Denver is coming off its 10thstraight conference championship and its first Western Athletic Conference championship. Junior Tonje Daffinrud (Tonsberg, Norway) earned medalist honors with a seven-under 209, the lowest 54-hole total in WAC women’s golf history.
