Mizzou will look ahead to postseason play in May, with NCAA Regional competitions beginning May 8. The 2014 NCAA Championship will be held May 20-23 at the Tulsa Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.

The Tigers posted a solid fall season in 2013, earning two top-10 team finishes including the Pat Bradley Invitational Title. Three Tigers had solid performances this fall season including, senior Taylor Gohn, redshirt sophomore Michelle Butler and sophomore Katherine Helper. All three finished with stroke averages below 75 and consistently earned the teams' top finishes.



The spring season will bring some stiff competition for Mizzou, but the team expects to improve upon an already successful fall season.
