SEATTLE -- Washington women's golf knew where it would be playing for the Regionals since it is hosting the tournament at Tumble Creek Club at Suncadia Resort. Monday, the Dawgs learned they would be the No. 4 seed and the other 23 teams that will complete for the eight places at the NCAA Championships.
The West Regional will be played on May 8-10 at Tumble Creek. The top eight teams will then move on to the NCAA Championships on 20-23 in Tulsa, Okla.
The top eight seeds in the West joining the Huskies will be No. 1 USC, No. 2 Arizona State, No. 3 Oklahoma, No. 5 Clemson, No. 6 Wake Forest, No. 7 Northwestern and No. 8 Michigan State. The rest of the field includes Iowa State, GRU Augusta, Oregon, Texas A&M, UC Davis, Denver, San Diego State, Wisconsin, Gonzaga, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Chattanooga, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Portland State and Detroit.
In addition, six individuals from non-advancing teams will get a shot at earning a spot at the NCAA Championships. Those players are Alison Knowles of Louisiana-Monroe, Regan de Guzman of San Jose State, Clariss Guce of Cal-State Northridge, Fabiola Arriaga of UT-San Antonio, Madched Ly of Fresno State and Alexandra White of BYU. The top-two individuals at the Regional that are not on qualifying teams will earn a spot at the NCAA Finals.
The Dawgs are coming off a sixth-place finish at the Pac-12 Championships, but have two wins this season and have been ranked in the top-10 for most of the year. SooBin Kim was the Huskies top finisher at the Pac-12's on week after winning the Silverado Invitational in Napa, Calif.
The Huskies hope to get back to the NCAA Championships for the first time since 2011. The top NCAA finish for Washington is sixth place coming in both 2004 and 2006. The 2006 team also had a best-ever regional finish of third place.
