NCAA Women's Golf Regionals: Oregon qualifies for NCAA Championships
The NCAA Women's Golf Regionals conclude play Saturday across the country, with nine Pac-12 teams participating. The top-six teams and top-three individuals from non-qualifying teams move on the NCAA Championships, held May 20-25 in Eugene. This page will update as teams finish their rounds.
Baton Rouge Regional
The Sun Devils will miss out on qualifying, finishing in eighth with a team score of 891 (+27). However, 2016 Pac-12 champ Linnea Strom is pretty much assured of a spot in Eugene as an individual. The rounds aren't complete yet, but Strom is currently tied for second among individuals on a non-top-six team, posting a three-day score of 215 (-1), and there isn't anyone who could realistically catch her.
The Ducks are moving on to the NCAA Championships, finishing in fifth in Louisana with a weekend score of 882 (+18). Helping pave the way Saturday were Cathleen Santoso and Marcella Pranovia, who both shot 71 on the final round. Santoso's +1 for the weekend will give her a top-20 finish. Now the Ducks get to play on a friendly course for all the marbles, and they look pretty excited.

Shoal Creek Regional
Here's the bad news -- the Golden Bears' team season is over. Three players shot 81 or worse on Saturday, dropping Cal from sixth (the team's spot heading into the final round) to seventh, eight strokes behind Michigan for the final qualifying spot out of Alabama.
But here's the good news -- Marianne Li isn't done yet. Not only does her +4 for the weekend qualify her as an individual competitor for the NCAA Championships, but she could very well take home individual medalist honors. Li currently sits in a tie for second, one stroke behind Florida State's Matllda Castren, who has two holes to play and has bogeyed the 18th once this weekend already.
