UW Golf Team Seeded No. 8 at NCAA West Regional

May 10, 2004

Seattle - The 24th-ranked Washington men's golf team will be the No. 8 seed at the NCAA West Regional Championship to be held at Crosswater in Sunriver, Ore. May 20-22. The top 10 teams from the regional will advance to the NCAA Championships to be held at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Va., June 1-4. Washington is looking to qualify for the NCAA Championships for the sixth consecutive year.

UCLA, ranked fifth nationally, is the top seed in the West. Other Pac-10 teams receiving bids to the west regional were Arizona (third seed), USC (fourth seed), California (sixth seed) and Stanford (16th seed).

Last year Washington was seventh at the West Regional and went on to place 11th at the NCAAs for the second consecutive season. Washington senior All-American Brock Mackenzie placed sixth at the 2003 West Regional.

'We feel good about playing at Crosswater since we just tied UCLA there at the Northwest Shootout,' said coach Matt Thurmond. 'I thought we might be around an eight or nine seed. Now we have to go out and play really solid for three days and keep our NCAA streak going.'

Washington's lineup for the regional will include Mackenzie, Dan Potter, Corey Prugh, Alex Prugh and Erik Olson.

Listed below are the teams and individuals selected to participate in the championships. Teams winning automatic qualification are designated by their conferences in parentheses.
