MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State sophomore women's golfer Madison Talley will travel to San Antonio, Texas, Thursday through Saturday, to compete in the 2015 NCAA Women's Golf Regionals at the par-72, 6,350-yard Briggs Ranch Golf Club.

Talley is the first player in program history to earn an individual bid to a NCAA Regional, while it is the first time the Wildcats will be represented at the NCAA Regionals since the team made an appearance in 2004.

"I am really excited for Madison to have the opportunity to play at the NCAA's," head coach Kristi Knight said. "It will be a great experience for her. It will be something that she can bring back to her teammates. It is a great opportunity and a reward for her consistent play throughout the year. I just want her to go and enjoy it, have a good time and just play her usual aggressive game."

Talley will joined by five other individuals in the San Antonio Regional: Yupaporn Kawinpakorn (Kansas), Marika Liu (Yale), Camino Sardinero (UTEP), Anica Yoo (Oregon State) and Manon Molle (New Mexico). Tee times each day will begin at 8:15 a.m.
 
Talley led the Wildcats during the 2014-15 season in stroke average at 73.93, improving almost eight shots per round over last season. During her sophomore campaign, Talley also led the team in rounds even or under par with 13 and average strokes per round behind the leader at 3.48. Talley paced the team in top-10 (5) and top-20 (8) finishes this season, including a career-best third place finish at the Lady Buckeye Invitational, April 18-19, in Columbus, Ohio.
