JOHNSON CITY (April 30, 2013) – The good news just keeps coming for the ETSU women’s golf team.

Late Monday evening, the Buccaneers learned they would be playing in the NCAA East Regional hosted at the Auburn University Club in Auburn, Ala. The tournament will be held May 9-11 at the 6,259-year, par-72 course, and the team will face a challenging field consisting of 24 teams in an effort to earn a spot in the NCAA Championships.

In addition, the team also learned Monday that sophomore Gabriella Wahl (Heidenheim, Germany) has been named to the Atlantic Sun Conference all-academic team.

“This regional field is stacked with perennial powerhouse programs,” said ETSU head coach Stefanie Shelton, whose team earned its spot in the NCAA field by capturing the Atlantic Sun Conference title earlier this month. “We recognize the challenge and the opportunity in front of us, and we look forward to teeing it up next Thursday.

“I believe this team has what it takes to move on if we can step onto the golf course and compete like we have the past few weeks.”

Shelton also had praise for Wahl.

“Gabriella is a model student-athlete,” Shelton said. “She accepts every challenge in the classroom and on the golf course – and excels. She pushes herself to always give her best. It is a privilege coaching such a determined young lady.”
