Last week the NAIA announced the first and second round pairings for the 20th annual event that will take place at Link Hills Country Club. First-round tee off action starts May 15 with Oklahoma City, Shorter (Ga.) and College of Idaho starting on No. 1, and Lee (Tenn.), Cal State-San Marcos and Dakota Wesleyan (S.D.) opening on hole 10.

The 144-player field consists of 15 automatic qualifying teams from various conferences, independents and unaffiliated group tournaments, as well as 13 at-large selections, determined by the NAIA Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. As well, four individuals earned spots at the event as medalists at their relative group tournaments or by individual at-large selections.

For the Vikes women, Woodland will be joined by third-year Michaela Misener (Stanhope, PEI), second-years Victoria Kondrak (Victoria, BC) and Brynn Tomie (Bedford, NS), as well as freshman Cari Chow (Victoria, B.C.). The coast-to-coast represented team finished third overall at the AII Championship last month and were also victorious earlier in the year at the annual Vikes Shootout.
