Arriaga earns berth in NCAA West Regional
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Fabiola Arriaga has earned a berth in the NCAA Division I Women's Golf West Regional, which will be hosted by the University of Washington from May 8-10 at Tumble Creek Club (par 72/6,252 yards) at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Wash.
Arriaga, who will be making her fourth consecutive NCAA appearance, was one of 18 individuals selected for the championship and she will compete against five other individuals and players from 24 teams at the West Regional. Eight teams and two individuals from each of the nation's three regionals will advance to the NCAA Championship, which is scheduled for May 20-23 in Tulsa, Okla.
Arriaga captured the Conference USA individual title last week in Gulf Shores, Ala., carding a conference-record-tying nine-under-par 207 (68-69-70) to win the crown by four strokes. The Torreon, Mexico, native became the third individual league champion in the program's nine-year history while registering her second outright win and 15th career top-10 finish.
Arriaga finished 62nd (74-80-72—226) at the 2013 NCAA Central Regional, 84th at the 2012 NCAA Central Regional (77-84-78—239) and 84th (79-78-81—238) at the 2011 West Regional in her previous NCAA appearances.
