BOISE, Idaho - The NCAA Women's Golf Regional Championships are scheduled to begin Thursday (May 7), and for just the second time in school history, a Boise State women's golfer will be participating as an individual.

Sophomore Genevieve Ling earned an invitation to the East Regional last week, which will be held at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course in Raleigh, N.C., May 7-9 (Thursday-Saturday). The course will play at a par 72 and 6,381 yards for the tournament, and the field will play 18 holes each day.

Live scoring for the tournament is available at Golfstat.com.

Ling is scheduled to tee off Thursday at 6:15 a.m. (MT), and will be playing with individuals from Georgia and South Florida.

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.

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.

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