The Jayhawks got an at-large bid for the NCAA Regional Championship in Cle Elum, Washington, announced via the GOLF Channel Wednesday afternoon. Kansas is the No. 9 seed in the 12-team Cle Elum Regional and will play at Tumble Creek Club.

That’s the reason why we’re here,” head coach Lindsay Kuhle said of the program’s first back-to-back bids. “We’re here to continue to build this program and make this women’s golf team one of the best in the country and you can’t do that without consistency.”

KU’s regional will take place May 6-8.

“This shows that we are ready to compete against the nation’s best,” Kansas head coach Lindsay Kuhle said in a statement from KU Athletics. “We’re very excited to play in Washington. We can play anywhere and have been all over the country trying to prepare for wherever we would be selected. (Tumble Creek) is a championship course and you can get any type of weather.”
