NYU and Washington University received bids to the 2019 NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championship May 14-17 in Houston, Texas at Bay Oaks Country Club.
The No. 9-ranked Washington University in St. Louis women's golf team received an at-large bid to the 2019 NCAA Division III National Championship set for Tuesday-Friday, May 14-17 in Houston, Texas at Bay Oaks Country Club.
WashU earned its eighth NCAA bid in program history and its first under first-year head coach Mary Swanson.
The championships will consist of both team and individual competition conducted concurrently. Following 54 holes of competition, the field will be cut to the top 15 teams and top six individuals not on one of those teams to compete the final day.
The Bears won their first four events of the 2018-19 season and finished the regular season with a scoring average of 308.18. WashU has two student-athletes ranked in Division III's top-50 and an additional one in the top-100.
"We are very excited about the opportunity to compete at the National Championship representing WashU," said Swanson. "This bid is a reflection of the depth of this team and a season of achievement for all of the members of this program. We are looking forward to prepping this week and getting to Houston to compete for WashU!"
For the fifth straight season, the Violets will be heading to the NCAA Division III National Championship.
NYU captured its fourth consecutive University Athletic Association (UAA) Championship by the slimmest of margins in a tight three-team battle in March and then earned an automatic bid to the NCAA championship this past weekend.
"It's been a great season. All of our golfers have contributed to the success we've had," Johnson added. "Now, we have one more task ahead of us."
