The UCF women’s golf team will compete as the No. 9 seed at the Louisville Regional at the DI Women’s Golf Championship, the NCAA announced Wednesday.
This will be UCF’s 15th regional appearance for the program, and the seventh in the last 10 seasons. Since Head Coach Emily Marron took over the program during the 2012-13 season, the Knights have not missed an NCAA regional appearance.
The women’s golf team becomes the sixth UCF squad to play in the postseason during 2020-21, joining the women’s basketball, volleyball, men’s soccer, men’s tennis and women’s tennis teams with NCAA Tournament berths. The football team made its fifth consecutive postseason bowl appearance at the RoofClaim.com Boca Raton Bowl.
The women’s tennis team finished fourth at the 2021 American Women’s Golf Championship to earn an at-large bid. Following that performance, UCF had a pair of Knights named to the AAC Women’s Golf All-Conference team, as Tunrada Piddon and Ana Laura Collado picked up honors.
The Knights will begin postseason play May 10 at the University of Louisville Golf Club in Simpsonville, Kentucky.
Each of the four regional championship sites will feature 54-holes, 18 teams and six individuals. The low six teams and the low three individuals from each regional will advance to the 2021 NCAA Division I Women’s Golf National Championships, to be held at Grayhawk Golf Club, in Scottsdale, Arizona, May 21-26. The Knights advanced to the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship for the second time in school history in 2019.
