DENTON, Texas - The record breaking season for the North Texas women's golf team continues as for the first time in school history the Mean Green has been selected to play in the NCAA Women's Golf Regionals.
It is the first time in school history that North Texas has sent a team to participate in the NCAA Regional after previously only sending two individuals.
The Mean Green will join 23 other teams at the NCAA Central Regional tournament which will be held at Warren Golf Course in South Bend, Indiana on May 5-7. North Texas is the No. 17 seed in the Central Region.
"This is a wonderful achievement for a very talented team", said Head Coach Jeff Mitchell. "They have put 100% effort into this and are reaping the rewards. Chandra (Alexander), Kelsey (Kipp), Addison (Long), Jacey (Chun) and Chaslyn (Chrismer) have played high quality golf all year. I applaud their efforts, their determination, and their positive attitudes for the success of this season. Taylor Kilponen should be included, too. She played in five events this season and contributed some very good rounds."
North Texas has had a record breaking year with a school record four tournament wins. The Mean Green had a school record four players earn all-conference honors this year and Mitchell was named the Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year, another first for the women's golf program. North Texas has been in the top-five in all 10 tournaments this season, which is a school record.
