SAVANNAH, Ga. - The Armstrong State University women's golf team has earned a bid to the 2016 NCAA Division II Women's Golf Championships, announced today by the NCAA.
The Pirates are one of 12 teams who will be competing in the NCAA South Regional in Pensacola, Fla., on May 2-4 at the Marcus Pointe Golf Club. The University of West Florida will be serving as the host.
The region field includes three teams from the Peach Belt Conference - the Pirates, Flagler and Montevallo. Rollins, Barry, Florida Tech, Nova Southeastern, Saint Leo and Lynn made the field from the Sunshine State Conference, while West Florida and Lee will represent the Gulf South Conference.
