NCAA Regional Begins on Thursday
May 18, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana University men's golf team is set for a 9:10 a.m. tee time on Thursday (May 20) for the opening round of the 2010 NCAA Central Regional, hosted by the University of Notre dame at The Warren Golf Course.
"We are going to have to play very well at Regionals to make it to Finals," said Head Coach Mike Mayer. "We know what we need to do at Notre Dame, we are going to be aggressive and attack the golf course at every opportunity."
INDIANA'S EXPECTED LINE-UP
1- Alex Martin (Sr., Middletown, Ohio)
2- David Erdy (So., Boonville, Ind.)
3- Chase Wright (So., Muncie, Ind.)
4- Brant Peaper (Fr., Tequesta, Fla.)
5- Corey Ziedonis (Fr., Indianapolis, Ind.)
It marks the sixth time in the last seven years in which the Hoosiers have qualified for the NCAA postseason. Indiana will be part of a 14-team field tabbed for the Central Regional which includes, in order of seeds (national ranking in parenthesis): Stanford (3), Florida (6), Florida State (19), Duke (24), LSU (30), North Carolina State (40), Iowa (48), Michigan (49), Northwestern (50), Indiana (66), Virginia Tech (61), Murray State (124), Detroit (143) and St. Francis (PA) (261).
The top-five teams at each of the six Regionals will advance to the NCAA Finals on June 1-6 in Chattanooga, Tenn., on The Honors Course. Indiana has tallied five top-five finishes this season, including a pair of team titles at The Renaissance Intercollegiate and adidas Hoosier Invitational. In addition, the top individual not on a team in the top-five will also advance to the Finals.
Indiana, as the No. 10-seed, will be paired with the 11th-seeded Hokies of Virginia Tech and 12th-seeded Murray State for the first two rounds. Pairings for the final round on Saturday will be based on results from the opening two rounds.
The Hoosiers last trip to the NCAA Finals came just two years ago during the 2007-08 season. Led by Campillo and his national runner-up performance, the Cream and Crimson came in at 21st first place.
