NORTHRIDGE, Calif. - CSUN senior Clariss Guce has earned the Matadors' first berth in the NCAA Championships in 10 years as she was selected as an individual for the NCAA West Regional Championship which will take place May 8-10 at Tumble Creek Club at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Wash.
The regional, hosted by the University of Washington, will feature 24 teams along with six individuals. Guce is scheduled to tee off the first round on May 8 at 8:25 a.m. off hole No. 1. The championship course plays to a par 72 and measures 6,252 yards. The top-two individuals at the Regional that are not on qualifying teams will earn a spot at the NCAA Finals.
Guce will be making the first appearance for a CSUN women's golfer at the NCAA Regionals since 2004 when the Matadors qualified as a team after winning their second consecutive Big West Championship. Beth Allen finished fifth at one-under 215 while CSUN finished 18th as a team.
Guce, a senior from Artesia, Calif., was named the Big West Women's Golf Player of the Year after tying for the individual conference championship. She led the Matadors with a 73.5 scoring average which broke Allen's 10-year old record of 74.4. Guce had four wins during the 2013-14 season while adding three other top-10 finishes.
