Golf Team Seeded No. 6 at NCAA West Regional
April 26, 2004
Seattle - The 12th-ranked Washington women's golf team will be the No. 6 seed at the NCAA West Regional Championship to be held at the Stanford Golf Course May 6-8. The Huskies hope to advance to the NCAA Championships at Auburn May 18-21. The selection marks the 12th time the Huskies have received a bid to a NCAA regional championship. Washington has advanced to the NCAA Championships seven times since 1977.
A total of eight teams and two individuals will advance from each of the three regionals to Auburn for the national finals. Last season the Huskies finished a disappointing 13th. Current senior Lindsay Morgan, who was fourth at the 2003 regional, was on the only member of the UW squad to be selected for the NCAA Championships.
'We're excited to be placed in the West Regional,' said Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'The seeding is about what I expected. We know the Stanford Golf Course very well and that should be an advantage. Even our freshmen have already played seven rounds there.'
