The NCAA announced on Monday (April 30) afternoon that Ashland University's women's golf team will compete in the Division II East Regional for the ninth consecutive season.
The Eagles will play in the regional tournament on May 7-9 at Katke Golf Course in Big Rapids, Mich. Ashland was the No. 7 team in the super region in each of the three sets of rankings released by the NCAA.
Seeding for the East Super Regional is as follows: 1) Indianapolis; 2) Grand Valley State; 3) Missouri-St. Louis; 4) Findlay; 5) Northern Michigan; 6) Illinois-Springfield; 7) ASHLAND; 8) Kutztown; 9) Tiffin; 10) Wayne State; 11) Southern Indiana; and 12) Franklin Pierce.
Ashland is one of only four programs to play in the D-II East Super Regional every year this decade, along with Grand Valley State, Indianapolis and Missouri-St. Louis.
The low three teams, and the low three individuals not on those teams, in each super region will advance to the 2018 NCAA Division II Championships, May 16-19 at Bay Oaks Country Club in Houston, Texas. Ashland qualified as a team for the national tournament in 2011, 2013 and 2015, with its best finish being ninth in both 2011 and 2015.
