BOISE, Idaho - Boise State sophomore Genevieve Ling became just second women's golfer in school history to earn an individual invitation to the NCAA Regional Championships, Monday. Ling was selected to participate at the East Regional, set for May 7-9, and hosted by North Carolina State at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course in Raleigh, N.C.

The last - and only - previous Bronco to be honored with an individual invitational to the postseason was Acey Erlandson in 2000.

"I am very proud of Genevieve for earning this spot," head coach Nicole Bird said. "She definitely deserves it. She worked very hard this season, and it was evident in her scoring average.

"This is also amazing for our program. Prior to coming to Boise State I had been to five-straight regionals, and I've made it a priority since I got here to get to NCAAs. It has finally happened."

Ling averaged 74.07 in 2014-15, the lowest single-season scoring average all-time at Boise State.

Her seven top-25 finishes and four top-10 finishes this season are each tied for the fourth most in school history. Included was a victory at the Cowgirl Classic, where she became just the 10th women's golfer in school history to win a tournament.

"This is an amazing opportunity and privilege that although I had hoped for, I definitely did not expect," Ling said. "I am honored, and will continue working hard to bring Boise State's name and program the recognition that it deserves."

The regional championship format will include three rounds of stroke play. The top six teams from each of the four regional sites, and the top three individuals not on those six teams, will advance to the NCAA Women's Golf Championships at Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla., May 22-27.
