Fourth-Ranked NYU Women's Golf Set For NCAA Championship

Fourth-Ranked NYU Women's Golf Set For NCAA Championship

From NYU Athletics

New York University's women's golf team will be one of 22 squads to compete at this year's NCAA Division III Golf Championship. The four-round competition will take place from Tuesday-Friday, May 9-12, at the Bay Oaks Country Club in Houston, TX. The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and Harris County-Houston Sports Authority will serve as the hosts for the week.

Ranked #4 in the nation by Golfstat.com, the Violets will send a contingent of five players to compete at Bay Oaks: juniors Alyssa Poentis and Kristin Lee, sophomores Jenni Bluetling and Patty Treevichaphan, and freshman Arisa Kimura.

The fivesome has combined for 22 top-five finishes and six individual victories in 10 total events this season. In contrast, the five golfers have finished outside of the top 20 a total of only four times.

The Violets won the University Athletic Association (UAA) Championship in March. Treevichaphan claimed the individual title, shooting 159 following a tournament-best 75 in the final round. She received UAA Most Valuable Player honors, with Poentis and Bluetling joining her as First Team All-Tournament selections. 

This will be NYU's third-consecutive appearance at the NCAA Championship. Last season, the Violets took 13th place with Poentis (T-39th), Bluetling (T-53) and Lee (T-57) as the team's top finishers.

Tee off for the NYU golfers will begin at 12:55pm (CT) on Tuesday and 7:45am (CT) on Wednesday. Tee times for Thursday's and Friday's rounds will be determined after the first two rounds are completed.
