Charteris earns spot in NCAA Central Regional
MARYVILLE, Mo. – Sophomore Steph Charteris is making history for the Northwest Missouri State women’s golf team. Charteris will represent the Bearcats in the NCAA Central Region Championships May 5-7 at the St. Joseph Country Club.
Charteris has been the stroke leader for Northwest with a 79.8 average in 16 rounds. The Ontario, Canada, native won three tournaments this season and only finished outside the top 10 twice. She finished tied for 19th at the MIAA Championships last week after the championships were canceled due to snow after the first round of play.
Each super regional will consist of both team and individual competition conducted concurrently with nine teams and four individuals from non-qualifying teams with Central Region action taking place at the St. Joseph Country Club.
All participants will compete throughout the 54 holes of competition. The top three teams along with the top three individuals not with a team from each super regional will advance to the championships.
The Bearcats who were ranked 10th as a team and likely fell one spot shy of qualifying for the nine team regional field. Northwest started NCAA competition in 2007-08 season and has never appeared as a team in the NCAA Regional, while Charteris becomes the first Bearcat to do so as an individual.MIAA Champion, Central Oklahoma, earned the top seed while runner-up Northeastern State was the only other MIAA team to earn a NCAA bid. Three teams from the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and four teams from the Great American Conference round out the field.
