The New Mexico State University women’s golf team is heading to the postseason.

The Aggies won their 10th Western Athletic Conference championship at the Boulder Creek Golf Club in Boulder City, Nev. from April 19-21.

Now, NMSU is set to travel to Stanford, California, for the NCAA Stanford Region from May 10-12.

The Aggies are the 15th seed at the tournament and will be joined at Stanford Golf Course by Wake Forest, Oklahoma State, Southern California, Virginia Tech, Stanford, Arizona, Florida, Northwestern, Iowa State, Denver, Texas Christian, San Diego State, Pepperdine, San Jose State, Cal Poly, Sacramento State and Navy.

NMSU is led by back-to-back WAC Coach of the Year Danny Bowen. New Mexico State also features WAC Player of the Year Amelia McKee, WAC Freshman of the Year Alison Gastelum and two-time WAC Player of the Year and four-time First Team All-WAC honoree Pun Chanachai.

McKee, a sophomore, is from Spring, Texas. Gastelum is from Ciudad Chihuahua, Mexico, and Chanachai, a senior, is from Bangkok, Thailand.

NCAA Regionals feature 54 holes of stroke play spread across three days of action. Along with Stanford, the host sites for this year's NCAA Regionals are: Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Columbus, Ohio; and Louisville, Kentucky.
 
The six lowest scoring teams and three low individuals not from those teams will advance from each NCAA Regional to the NCAA Championships on May 21-26 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The women Aggies are looking to qualify for their 10th appearance at the NCAA Golf Championships.
