April 29, 2002
EUGENE, Ore. - Senior women's golfer Kathy Cho was selected to play as an individual at the 2002 NCAA West Regional the NCAA announced Monday morning. The NCAA West Regional will be held May 9-11 at the Stanford Golf Course.
'It's a tribute to how well she played all spring,' said coach Shannon Rouillard. 'She is certainly deserving of the opportunity.'
Cho finished tied for 17th at last week's Pac-10 tournament, recording a 14-over 230. For the season, the Honolulu, Hawaii, native has a 76.8 stroke average with five top 25 finishes.
Oregon, which finished 10th at the Pac-10 championships, did not qualify for the regional as a team for the first time since 1992.
'It's disappointing,' said Rouillard. 'It's tough to be on the bubble and not make it. But we had four underclassmen who got incredible experience this year and they will be major players for us in the future.'
