LAS VEGAS ( – UNLV women’s golf junior Toa Yokoyama finshed tied for 11th as play at the NCAA Las Vegas Regional wrapped up Wednesday on the Canyon and Lakes Courses at Spanish Trail Country Club (Par 72, 6,665 yards). The regional competition was hosted by UNLV and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

Battling heavy winds, Yokoyama (76-67-74) mustered a final-round 2-over 74 after making birdie on her final hole to walk away with a 1-over 217 for the tournament. She was the top finisher among individuals not attached to a team and landed just two shots from the score that earned the NCAA Championship individual qualifying spot.

The team title went to Arkansas, who despite a 16-over round still finished with an even-par 864 and a four-shot cushion over runner-up Purdue (+4). UCLA’s Zoe Campos and the Razorbacks’ Kajal Mistry came away as the regional co-champions at 6-under 210 for the three-day event.

Behind the Razorbacks and Boilermakers, Baylor (+8), the Bruins (+12) and Florida State (+14) placed third through fifth, respectively, as the five teams to punch their ticket to the NCAA Championship being held at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa from May 17-22 in Carlsbad, California. Claiming the automatic individual qualification to the national championship, Kent State’s Veronika Kedronova carded a 1-under 215 through 54 holes.
