LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) -Starting on Monday, history will be made at the University of Louisville golf course. That's because for the first time, the school is hosting an NCAA Regional. The Cards are the four seed in the tournament after earning their 11th at large bid in school history. Head coach, Mark Crabree says his team is excited for this opportunity. "We've had a chance to be on the golf course every single day. I think the guys are truly excited to be able to say we're the host, and at the same time to play on your home course," said Crabtree.
Although they’re hosting, the Cards’ road to the championship is not easy. The country’s number one team and defending national champion, Oklahoma State are among the teams playing at the U of L golf course. Crabtree says he’s hoping being at home is an advantage. “When you are selected as a team to host the NCAA Regional, that’s one of the advantages you have. So, hopefully we’ll take advantage of that and have a good performance,” said Crabtree.
