INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA Division III Women's Golf Committee announced 21 teams and six individuals that will participate in the 2013 NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships.
Eleven conferences have been granted automatic qualification and the remaining 10 teams were selected on an at-large basis from conferences and the remaining independent institutions. Six individuals, not from selected teams, also were selected for the championships.
The championships will consist of both team and individual competition conducted concurrently. The tournament consists of 72 holes of play in four days of competition. In the team competition, the low four scores from each team for each day will count in the team's total score.
