Hens headed to Texas in NCAAs: Delaware was tabbed to participate in the Bryan, Tex. Regional of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships, as the selections were announced Monday night.
The Blue Hens were one of 18 teams sent to the regional, which is hosted by Texas A&M and will be held May 5-7 on the 6,242-yard course at Traditions Club. Delaware will be the 16th seed at the regional.
The low six teams and the low three individuals not on those teams from each of the four regionals advance to the national championships, which will be held May 20-25 at the Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Oregon.
“We are really excited we’re going to Texas,” said UD senior Nathalie Filler. “There are a lot of great teams going there, and hopefully we can advance to the NCAA Championships. We already faced TCU and UCLA this spring, so it will be great to see those teams again. We hung in there against them in California, and hopefully we can do it again next weekend.”
The Hens, in just the fifth year of the program, will be making their first trip to the NCAA Regionals after earning an automatic bid by capturing the Colonial Athletic Association title on April 15-17.
