The senior added to her legacy with another trip to the postseason. INDIANAPOLIS – Building on her legacy, senior Alivia Brownwas selected to her third NCAA Division I Women's Regionals. She will compete as an individual at the San Francisco Regional, hosted by Stanford, May 7-9 at the TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.
"I am excited about Alivia advancing to NCAA Regionals for the third time in her college career," said head coach Kelli Kamimura. "Alivia is an extremely hard worker and I couldn't be prouder of who she is as an athlete, a student, and a person."
Brown had already cemented her name among the all-time greats in program history last season as a junior after becoming the first Cougar to ever earn multiple bids to the postseason after going to the regionals as both a freshman and junior. As a freshman, Brown became the first Cougar to appear in an NCAA Regional since 2007 when Washington State competed as a team in the West Regional. As a junior, Brown went to Lubbock, Texas to play in the regional tournament where she finished in a tie for 25th overall. She missed advancing to the NCAA Championships by five strokes after posting a three-round total of four-over, 220.
At the 2015 NCAA West Regional at St. George, Utah, then a freshman, Brown competed as an individual, firing a three-round score of six-over, to place sixth and become the first Cougar in school history to qualify as an individual for the NCAA National Championships.
A native of Gig Harbor, Wash., Brown became the first WSU player to earn All-Pac-12 honors since 2007 as the senior earned honorable mention honors for her play. She spent the majority of the Cougars spring season ranked in the top-100, closing out the Pac-12 Championships and the regular season ranked No. 43 in the country. Her career-low of 72.68 scoring average ranks as No. 1 in program history.
The NCAA Division I Women's San Francisco Regionals begin Monday, May 7 around the country, with 24 teams and 12 individuals advancing to the NCAA Championship at Karsten Creek Golf Club on May 18-23 in Stillwater, Okla.
