Stanford women take aim at honors at NCAA Championships


Coming off a second-place finish at a national regional, the Stanford women's golf team will take aim at an even bigger prize when it heads into the NCAA Championships this weekend.

The tournament gets under way Friday at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla.

Last week, Stanford finished second in the NCAA St. George Regional -- one of four used for the tournament proper.

Stanford is making its sixth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Championships. The Cardinal's best showing was a second-place finish in 2000.

There will be 54 holes of stroke play competition, with the top 15 teams and nine individuals not on an advancing team moving on to a fourth round of stroke play. The top eight teams advance to match play.

This season's field includes 24 teams and 12 individuals, including 16th-ranked Stanford.

Stanford will look to improve on last season's 18th-place finish at the NCAA Championships. The Cardinal has posted 12 top-10 showings in the NCAA Championship.

Junior All-American Lauren Kim and sophomore Casey Danielson sparked Stanford at the NCAA regional, tying for seventh and finishing ninth, respectively. Freshman Shannon Aubert also made a strong contribution by tying for 11th. Kim finished third individually last year in the NCAA Championships.

Stanford junior All-American Mariah Stackhouse tied for 33rd last year and tied for 29th in the 2013 NCAA finale. Sophomore Quirine Eijkenboom came on strong for the Cardinal at the NCAA regional, closing with rounds of 74-72.
