One day after the best conference tournament finish in program history, the Colorado women’s golf team earned another invitation to the NCAA regionals.
On Thursday, the Buffaloes received an invitation to the Columbus Regional, to be played May 8-10 in Columbus, Ohio.
“I am so proud of the team,” head coach Anne Kelly said in a press release. “This spring they have been just steadily improving and working really hard and I am so proud of them. And now to get to take them to Columbus is exciting.”
CU, ranked 20th nationally by Golfstat and 21st by Golfweek, placed second in the Pac-12 Championship on Wednesday.
The Buffs are the No. 5 seed at the Columbus Regional, a 54-hole tournament to be played at Ohio State’s Scarlet Course. The top six teams will advance to the NCAA Championship.
This is the seventh time in program history – and fourth year in a row — that the Buffs have earned a team invitation to the NCAA regionals. They made their only NCAA championship appearance in 2012.
CU is the only Pac-12 team in the field at Columbus. Florida is the top seed in the field, followed by Florida State, South Carolina and Arkansas.
