LUBBOCK. Texas – Texas Tech women's golf is headed to its sixth regional in seven years after being announced as one of 18 teams in the NCAA Stanford Regional during the NCAA Selection Show on Monday night.

"I am happy about our selection to the Stanford Regional," head Texas Tech golf coach JoJo Robertson said. "The Stanford Golf Course is a great course and one I believe our team can play well. We are looking forward to it."

The No. 25 Lady Raiders, the 7th seed at their respective regional site, are playing in their 16th regional overall and will join Southern California, Arkansas, Stanford, Virginia, UNLV, San Diego State, Ohio State, Colorado, Wake Forest, Michigan State, North Carolina, Pepperdine, San Jose State, UC-Riverside, Idaho, Richmond and Seton Hall at the Stanford Golf Club on May 5-7.

The top six teams from each regional will qualify for the NCAA Championships that will be held in Eugene, Ore., at the Eugene Country Club May 20-25.

Tech finished the 2016 regular season with nine top-10 finishes, including six top-five finishes. The Lady Raiders were paced in 2016 by sophomore Gabby Barker who will enter NCAA postseason play with a 72.07 stroke average.

Tech last played in the 2015 NCAA Central Regional in San Antonio where the Lady Raiders finished fifth out of 18 teams. Tech built on their strong Regional start to advance to the 2015 NCAA Championship at Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla. where the Lady Raiders finished in a tie for fifth nationally.
