IU women’s golf spent National Golf Day waiting to see if it would make it into an NCAA Regional.

After a tied ninth finish at the Big Ten Championships, the team was left out of the field despite top-10 finishes at each tournament this season.

However, the season is not over for all the Hoosiers as junior Erin Harper was chosen as one of six individuals to participate in Madison, Wisconsin.

Harper will be the first IU individual to participate in a Regional since then-senior Elizabeth Tong in 2015.

This season Harper owns the second lowest average round score among IU’s lineup. She is just .01 strokes behind freshman Mary Parsons.

Harper picked up medalist honors at the Fresno State Classic in early March. She also placed in the top-13 of two other tournaments.

Harper will play three rounds at University Ridge Golf Course beginning on May 7. 

The three lowest scores among individuals at the tournament will advance to the NCAA Championships at Karsten Creek Golf Course in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
