Lucas Looks To Extend Stellar Season

For the fourth straight year, Nevada has seen one of its men's golfers selected for the NCAA Regionals. This morning, senior Kevin Lucas will tee off at the Norman Regional hosted by Oklahoma. He is one of five individuals competing alongside 14 teams. Lucas must be the low individual not amongst one of the top five teams to advance to the NCAA Championships.

As men's golf coach Jacob Wilner said yesterday, 2011-12 has been a stellar season for Lucas, who registered eight top-20 finishes in 11 starts, including a victory in the fall at the Pacific Invitational. A juco transfer, Lucas earned All-WAC honors each of his two seasons at Nevada.

He also set the bar for one of the youngest teams in the country as Nevada often sent Lucas and at least three (sometimes four) freshmen to compete during the course of the year. The Wolf Pack had some bright moments during the course of the season, highlighted by Lucas's play and a glimpse at the future with such a young team.

Today is the first day of the three-day, 54-hole regional. Click here for more information, including live scoring.
