AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Augusta Jaguars women's golf team earned their sixth all-time bid to compete in NCAA Regional action and will travel to the Baton Rouge Regional in Baton Rouge, La., from May 5-7 to play for an invitation to the NCAA Championship. The regional will be played at the University Club Course.
The selection for the Jaguars is the sixth in the 15-year history of the program and it will mark the first trip for first-year Augusta Head Coach Caroline Hegg.
The regional will be a three-day, 54-hole tournament with 18 holes played each day. Augusta will open action on Thursday, May 5.
