The Top 6 teams from the four NCAA Regionals - at Louisville, Stanford, Baton Rouge and Columbus - will advance to Grayhawk.
"It's always a goal of ours to put together a resume that is good enough to stay west for regionals. Although we didn't get to play a Fall segment we felt that we put a good enough resume together with five wins in our seven events to do just that," USC Head Coach Justin Silverstein said. "Our team is extremely excited to head back to Stanford to compete and we look forward to seeing some great teams from all over the country."
USC is led by the senior trio of Alyaa Abdulghany, Allisen Corpuz and Amelia Garvey, all of whom were recent All-Pac-12 first team picks.
USC posted a recent NCAA record run of seven straight regional titles that ended in 2017. USC has won an NCAA best 13 regionals overall and had a streak of being an NCAA regional top seed from 2011-16.
