SIUE Selected for NCAA East Regional
The SIUE women’s golf team was one of six teams selected to the NCAA East Regional golf tournament, to be held May 6-7 at Findlay, Ohio.
It is the first time the Cougar golf team has advanced to the regional as a team.
“We are obviously happy to make it,” Coach Larry Bennett said. “It is a credit to the team’s hard work.”
SIUE will enter the tournament as the sixth-seed. SIUE joins Grand Valley State, Ferris State, Longwood, Indianapolis, and Northern Kentucky in the tournament.
“We are going to need to play well to be one of two teams to advance out of the regional,” Bennett said.
Bennett expects to know by Wednesday which golfers he will send to the regional.
Katie Farrell (Princeton), who finished 28th in the East Regional last season, leads the Cougars with an 84.2 scoring average. Bennett said Farrell guaranteed herself a spot on the regional roster.
