The women’s golf season in Arizona ends at the NCAA Las Vegas Regional

Arizona’s women’s golf season came to an end Wednesday as the Wildcats fell two strokes short of reaching the NCAA championships.

Arizona placed sixth at the NCAA Las Vegas Regional, finishing one spot behind the cutoff to qualify for the NCAA Championships. This is only the third time in the past decade that Arizona has not advanced to the NCAA Championships.

Arizona entered the third and final round of the regional in seventh place and needed to move up into the top five to advance.

The Wildcats battled for the fifth spot with UCLA and Florida State before ultimately falling short. Arizona shot over a par of 16 for the regional.

“It’s always difficult to have your season end sooner than you would like, but I am incredibly proud of these young women,” said head coach Laura Ianello.

Freshman Charlotte Back led Arizona by shooting even over three rounds and finished tied for 8th.

Arizona should return the core of its starters next season, including Back, Julia Misemer, Carolina Melgrati And Nana Wongthanavimok.

Senior Gile Bite Starkute leaves the program after five seasons.
