Beavers Selected To NCAA Regionals For Fifth-Straight Time
CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State women's golf team earned an invitation to the 2022 NCAA Division I Regionals on Wednesday.
The Beavers are one of 72 teams to receive a bid and will compete Monday, May 9 through Wednesday, May 11 at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn.
This is the fifth-consecutive time Oregon State has earned a trip to postseason play. The 2020 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Regionals were canceled due to COVID-19.
The 2022 Division I NCAA women's golf season has six regional sites for the first time in its history this season. Each of the regional sites feature 12 teams and six individuals, with the top four teams and top two individuals (not on an advancing team) qualifying for the championships, which will be held for the second straight year at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., from May 20-25.
This is the first time Oregon State will be able to compete in a regional since 2019. The 2020 regionals were canceled due to COVID-19 and the 2021 regionals in Baton Rouge, La., were canceled due to inclement weather.
The Beavers have just missed advancing to the national championships the last three times they were able to compete. They finished seventh in Lubbock, Texas in 2017, their best-ever finish at NCAA Regionals, eighth in Madison, Wis., in 2018 and eighth in Cle Elum, Wash., in 2019.
An Oregon State golfer has earned a trip to the national championships each of those years as one of the top three individuals not on a qualifying team -- Susie Cavanagh in 2017, Nicole Schroeder in 2018 and Ellie Slama in 2019.
