Following a third-place finish in last week’s Big West Championships, 69th-ranked UC Davis was hoping it would receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Division Men’s Golf Championship.
Though that call didn’t come, the Aggies will be represented in the NCAA regionals for the fifth time in six years as senior Tyler Raber, a Davis High graduate, was selected to compete as an individual.
The Greiner Athlete of the Week, who led UCD in scoring average (72.3) and posted three top-10 finishes in 2012-13, will play at the Palouse Ridge Golf Club in Pullman, Wash., May 16-18.
“He’s an outstanding player, he’s had a great career and he was clearly our best player this year,” said Aggie head coach Cy Williams. “He’s very worthy of a selection and we’re excited to see what he can do in Washington against a very strong field.”
It will mark Raber’s third NCAA appearance as he joined the UCD squad in both 2009 and 2011.
