Women’s golf headed to nationals

| Sports Reporter

The Washington University women’s golf team is headed to the national championship in just its second year as a varsity sport. The Bears, who peaked in the rankings earlier in the spring as the fifth-best team in the country, go into the tournament as the 15th seed, which makes them the highest of those receiving an at-large bid. The lineup will feature freshmen Hannah Buck and Melanie Walsh, sophomore Katie Homa, and junior co-captain Kate Pettinato and senior co-captain Kris Zeschin. The tournament is 72 holes, the standard for professional golf, and will take place at the Mission Inn Resort at Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., next week. No. 1 Methodist University is the 12-time defending champion.
