Adams receives bid to NCAA east regional

UNCW Press Release

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW senior Lori Beth Adams received an individual entry into the 2014 NCAA Division I Women's Golf East Regional in Tallahassee, Fla., the NCAA Women's Golf Selection Committee announced on Monday.

The 2014 NCAA East Regional will take place May 8-10 at the SouthWood Golf Club and is one of three 54-hole tournaments that will feature 24 teams and six individual entries. The top eight teams and two individuals not part of an advancing team from each of the three regional sites will qualify for the 2014 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship, scheduled to be played May 20-23 at the Tulsa Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.

A native of Burlington, N.C., Adams fashioned a team-low 74.84 stroke average in 26 rounds played during the 2013-14 regular season. In nine events, the reigning Colonial Athletic Association Player-of-the-Year posted six top-20 results, including three top-10 finishes.

Adams has played her best golf of the season in recent weeks as she captured her first collegiate title with a four-shot victory at the UNCW Seahawk Classic in early April and finished tied for 2nd at the CAA Women's Golf Championships just eight days ago to earn All-Tournament Team honors at the event for the third consecutive season.

The first player in program history to be rewarded with an individual entry to an NCAA Regional twice during her career, Adams is just the fourth Seahawk individual to advance to postseason play. Former UNCW standouts Sofia Hagsund, Michelle Jarman (2006) and Nicole Flood (1990) were also selected during their respective careers. The invitation also means that Adams will become just the fourth player to participate in a NCAA Regional in all four years of her career, joining Jarman (2003-06), Becky Berzonski (2002-05) and Amelie Farrah (2002-05) on the exclusive list.

Named one of the Top 35 New Courses in America by Golf Magazine and ranked among America's Best New Courses by Golf Digest, SouthWood Golf Club is slated to host its first NCAA Regional. The Fred Couples and Gene Bates design has also been selected as one of the Top 50 Courses for women in Golf Magazine and voted Tallahassee's Best Golf Course by Tallahassee Magazine.

Adams is no stranger to SouthWood Golf Club as she competed on the course during the FSU Match-Up last February. She posted a 79-74-72=225 total during the 54-hole event to earn a share of 18th place in the 63-player field.
