Coastal Carolina, the 2013 Big South Champion and fifth-place finisher at the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional, will be making its fourth team appearance at the NCAA Championship, also qualifying for the final in 2005, ’06 and ’07.

Filling out Coastal’s lineup will be junior Roberto Ballesteros and sophomores Andrew Dorn, Ben Wheeler and Peter Valasek.

Seeds 21 through 30 – Saint Mary’s, Kent State, Oklahoma, UNLV, UCF, Tennessee, Arizona State, Texas Tech, Coastal Carolina and Ball State.

The 75th edition of the national championship takes place over six days, beginning May 28 when the 30 teams battle in 54 holes of stroke play, 18 holes each day over three days, followed by three days of match play competition culminating in the national championship match Sunday, June 2.

The format for stroke play is each team fields five players, with the low four scores each day counting toward the team score. After 54 holes on Thursday, May 30, the individual national champion will be crowned, and the top eight schools in terms of team score are seeded for match play competition beginning Thursday, May 31.
