INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 30, 2018) – Ranked 10th in the nation coming out of the regular season, Rollins women's golf earned an 18th-straight trip to the NCAA Division II postseason, it was announced Monday. 

The Tars are the seventh-seed in the South Super Regional, played May 7-9 at Germantown Country Club in Germantown, Tennessee. Christian Brothers is serving as host of the event. Rollins competed at that venue earlier this year, winning the CBU Buccaneer Spring Classic. 

The 12 teams in the event are battling for a spot in the NCAA Division II National Championship, hosted at Bay Oaks Country Club in Houston, May 16-19. The top three teams in each super regional and top-three individuals not from an advancing team will get spots in the national tournament. 

Since the NCAA Division II Tournament was established in 2000, all but one national champion has come from the South Region. 

Top-ranked Nova Southeastern headlines the South Region field this season, followed by fifth-ranked and defending national champion Barry. No. 4 Saint Leo is the three-seed while sixth-ranked Flagler and ninth-ranked Lynn round out to the top-five. A total of nine teams ranked in the national top-25 again make the south region the most competitive in the country.

Rollins enjoyed a tournament for the record books last year, finishing second behind Barry at the Super Regional. The Tars were sixth after day one, improved by nine strokes on day two, but were still fifth and on the outside looking in of a national championship bid. They then scorched the course on the final day, shooting the best score of the tournament to vault into second place. At the NCAA National Tournament in Findlay the following week, the Tars finished sixth.
