Erin Harper will represent IU at the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships as an individual Friday.

Harper moved on from the NCAA Regionals after finishing tied for seventh, as she shot three-over-par as the top individual not playing for a qualifying team. She shot 68, 70 and 75 on her three rounds.

Harper is the first golfer to make it to the NCAA Championships since 1998 and the third player in total to represent IU at the championship level as an individual.

The tournament, hosted by Oklahoma State, will be held in Stillwater, Oklahoma, at the Karsten Creek Golf Course. The tournament will take place over the course of four days and four rounds, with the top 15 teams and top nine individuals advancing after the first three rounds. The last round, which will be Monday, will determine the individual champion.

Harper tees off at 9:25 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Friday.
