SOSU Golf Punches Ticket to Regional

For the second-straight season Southeastern's men's golf team has earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Central/Midwest Super-Regional, with this year's event being held in Eureka, Mo., May 5-7.

The tournament is made up of the top-10 teams in both the Central and the Midwest regions along with four individual qualifiers from each region.

The event will be held at the Fox Run Golf Course in Eureka, Mo., and is hosted by Missouri-St. Louis.

SE advances as the No. 7-ranked team in the central region and is one of four Great American Conference teams to earn a berth.

In addition to the four GAC teams, the field is comprised of five MIAA schools and the automatic qualifier from the Northern-Sun.

Central Missouri is the top ranked team coming in, followed by GAC teams Arkansas Tech and Henderson State.

Northeastern State, followed by Central Oklahoma and Nebraska-Kearney sit directly in front of SE.

Lindenwood comes in at eighth, followed by Southwestern Oklahoma State and St. Cloud State.

The Midwest Region is made up of (in order): Malone, Missouri-St. Louis, Grand Valley State, Wayne State, Indianapolis, Ferris State, Lewis, Saginaw Valley State, Ashland and Tiffin.

The Storm is coming off a third-place finish in the GAC tournament April 13-15, which was the seventh top-5 finish for the team on the year in their 10 events.

Southeastern has won two events on the year, the Texoma Championship and the Natural State Golf Classic, while adding two runner-up finishes, a third place finish, a fourth place finish and a fifth place finish.

As a team on the year, SE is carrying a 75.63 scoring average which ranks 42nd in the country, but is good for fourth among Central region schools and seventh among the teams advancing to the super-regional.

The top three teams in each super-regional will automatically advance to the NCAA Championship scheduled for May 19-23 at The Meadows Golf Course in Allendale, Mich., with the remaining eight bids awarded based on regional representation in the 2013 medal-match section of the championship.
