McGlasson Selected For NCAA Golf Postseason

May 9, 2005

                BOULDER - The University of Colorado golf had a mixed bag of news Monday, most of it not positive, as the Buffs were not selected to participate in the NCAA Championships for just the fifth time since the regional format was adopted in 1989.

 

                Head coach Mark Simpson held out some hope his Buffaloes would be selected, but with 28 automatic conference champion qualifiers, including as many as seven schools that may not have advanced to regionals, the chances for Colorado were slim.  Simpson also checked into Boulder Community Hospital Monday with a blood clot in his leg, a fairly common occurrence for those who had surgery like Simpson had on April 11 to remove part of his left lung.  He was receiving treatment and was in good spirits, though he may not be able to accompany the Buffaloes on their final road trip of the year to The Maxwell Intercollegiate in Ardmore, Okla., later this week.

 

                Junior Edward McGlasson, CU's stroke average leader at 73.1 and who has been Colorado's top performer in all six meets this spring (and in nine of 11 on the season) was selected to participate individually.  He will travel to South Bend, Ind., to compete May 19-21 for a spot in the NCAA Finals early next month in Cave Creek, Md.

 

A total of 27 teams and six individuals were selected for each regional site.  The complete list:
