Women's Golf To Compete At NCAA Championship
Posted: Wednesday, May 2, 2007
EAU CLAIRE - The UW-Eau Claire women's golf team will be one of 20 teams to compete at the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships May 8-11 at the Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida.
UW-Eau Claire received an automatic bid into the 20-team tournament field by winning the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) Championship in October, 2006. The Blugolds are making their seventh straight appearance in the NCAA tournament with a school-best third-place finish in 2005.
Meghan Sobotta (Jr.-Arcadia) led the team in the fall with a stroke average of 80.5. Sobotta was a second team All-American last season. Jesse Thompson (Sr.-Stevens Point/SPASH) is second on the team with a stroke average of 80.8. Torie Ives (Fr.-Osseo/Osseo-Fairchild) ranks third on the team in stroke average with an 82.2. Ives captured medalist honors at the WIAC Championship last fall marking the fourth straight season a Blugold has won medalist honors.
Eleven conferences have been granted automatic qualification and the remaining nine teams were selected on an at-large basis from conferences and the remaining independent institutions. Eleven individuals, not from selected teams, also were selected for the championships.
The championships will consist of both team and individual competition conducted concurrently. The tournament consists of 72 holes of play over four days of competition. In the team competition, the low four scores from each team for each day will count in the team's total score.
