INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — UTSA learned Monday night that it will head to Columbus, Ohio, for the NCAA Central Regional. The 24-team tournament will be hosted by The Ohio State University from May 10-12.

A total of 24 teams will compete at the Ohio State Scarlet Course with the top eight squads advancing to the NCAA Championship, which is scheduled to be played from May 22-25 at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn. Sixteen of’s top 50 will be in the regional, including third-ranked USC and No. 4 Auburn.

The Roadrunners, who successfully defended their Southland Conference Championship two weeks ago, earned the league’s automatic bid after posting the top two finishers and a total of three players in the top 10 en route to a five-stroke victory over I-35 rival Texas State, which earned an at-large bid to the Central Regional. Senior Shannon Jungman led the event from start to finish for her first collegiate win, while Southland Player of the Year Fabiola Arriaga finished in second place.
