CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's golf team is headed to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to compete in the 2016 NCAA Women's Golf Regional Championship being held May 5-7 at University Club.

Harvard earned the Ivy League's automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals on Sunday as it ran away with the program's fifth-straight Ivy League championship. The Crimson earned the decisive victory by 13 strokes over Princeton after entering the final day leading by six strokes.

This will mark the fifth straight appearance for Harvard at the NCAA Regionals and seventh in the last nine years under head coach Kevin Rhoads.

Four locations were selected for the NCAA Regional Championships with 18 teams, plus six individuals, competing at each venue May 5-7. The low six teams and low three individuals (not on those teams) from each of the four regionals will advance to the NCAA Women's Golf Championships, taking place May 20-25 at Eugene County Club in Eugene, Oregon.

Golf Channel will feature scores, highlights and interviews from the regional championships, airing within Golf Central and Morning Drive. Golf Channel Digital will also provide up-to-date scoring and news coverage of the regional championships.
