Western golf teams begin regional tournaments
The Western men’s golf team is ready for a postseason run. The Vikings were named the No. 1 seed in the West Region for the NCAA Division II Championships and will compete in the West/South Central Super Regional Thursday through Saturday in Pueblo, Colorado.
It is the 23rd season in a row Western will be making an NCAA postseason appearance.
Western earned its trip to the Super Regional by winning the Great Northwest Athletic Conference title in April, finishing 21 strokes ahead of Simon Fraser University. It was the 10th team title in program history.
Also in postseason action a few days ahead of the men’s team is the Western women’s golf team.
The Vikings were GNAC champions for the second season in a row and earned the 12th and final seed in the West Region with the West Regional scheduled for May 2-4 in Stockton, California. It will be the Vikings’ 12th appearance in the West Regional.
