A celebration will be held Sunday, May 1, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Gradkowski’s to send off UT senior Sathika Ruenreong who will compete in the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Regional Thursday through Saturday, May 5-7, in Shoal Creek, Ala.
All fans of the UT women’s golf program are invited to attend the free celebration.
“Earning a spot in the NCAA Regionals is a huge accomplishment for Sathika, and I want everyone to come out and wish her well,” Head Coach Nicole Hollingsworth said. “There is no better way to celebrate the best golfer in school history then spending a little bit of time with Sathika to show her your support. I hope to see hundreds of people at Gradkowski’s wearing their Midnight Blue and Gold on Sunday!”Ruenreong is the first Rocket to compete in an NCAA event in the program’s 21-year history. A four-time first-team All-Mid-American Conference selection, Ruenreong will enter the regional after setting school records for stroke average in a season (73.5) and career (74.9), as well as most career individual titles (4).
She also helped the Rockets set a school record for most tournament victories (5) and finish second at the Mid-American Conference Championships for the third time in the last four years. Ruenreong finished third or better in six of 11 tournaments this season, including two first-, two second- and two third-place showings.
The top six teams and top three individuals not on an advancing team will move on to the NCAA Championships, which will be held at the Eugene Country Club in Eugene, Ore., Friday through Wednesday, May 20-25.
