BC’s Chris Crisologo Selected To Compete At NCAA Super Regional
STOCKTON, Calif. – Simon Fraser junior Chris Crisologo, who won four tournaments this year, has been selected to compete in the NCAA Division II West/South Central Super Regional, which will be held this year in Stockton, California.
The tournament will be held on May 8-10 at the Brookside Golf Course in Stockton. The tournament features 20 teams and eight individuals with 10 teams from the West Region and 10 teams from the South Central Region.
Saint Mary’s is the top seed from the South Central Region and BYU-Hawaii is the top seed from the West Region. Since joining NCAA Division II competition in 1999, the Vikings have competed in the Super Regional every year. The winners of the GNAC Championships will be looking to advance past the Super Regional for the eighth time.
Western Washington, which won the GNAC Championship, is the No. 6 seed.
Crisologo enters the tournament as the GNAC individual champion after shooting a 5-under-par 208. He has now won six tournaments in his career. At the CBU Invitational, he finished in a tie for fourth place individually. The event featured 30 golfers that will be competing in the Super Regional. Last year, Crisologo finished in a tie for 17th place at the Super Regional, which was held in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
The NCAA has selected 80 teams and 32 student athletes competing as individuals to participate in four regional competitions leading to the 2017 NCAA Division II Men’s Golf Championships.
At a minimum, the top three teams and eight additional team berths and the top two student-athletes not with a team from each regional (regardless of region) will advance to the finals May 22-26, at Reunion Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. The finals will be hosted by the Sunshine State Conference and Central Florida Sports Commission.
