ASU women’s golf clinches 35th NCAA berth in program history

May 9, 2019

NORMAN, Okla. – The Sun Devil Women’s Golf team finished the Norman Regional in fifth place and will be advancing to the NCAA Championships for the 35th time in program history.

Battling through tough conditions and weather delays, Arizona State matched yesterday’s total, putting together a 289 (+1) on the final day to seal their spot in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This is the third consecutive season that ASU has advanced under Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye, who was at the helm when the 2017 team captured the program’s eighth National Championship.

Individually, Olivia Mehaffey finished the Norman Regional with a 208 (-8), good enough to earn her a share of the Regional Medalist honors with Oklahoma’s Kaitlin Milligan. Mehaffey becomes the eighth Sun Devil to accomplish the feat, last coming when Monica Vaughn won the Lubbock Reigonal and started her run to the 2017 NCAA Individual National Title.
