For just the second time in school history, the SIU Saluki men's golf team is headed to the NCAA tournament after winning the Missouri Valley Conference championship.

The Salukis were assigned to the Louisville Regional (May13-15) as the 13th and final seed.

Head Coach and Eldorado native Justin Fetcho says he isn't worried about the seeding, saying the team has been an underdog all season and is ready to prove people wrong.

Kaufman was named the 2019 MVC Coach of the Year and junior Lili Klekner-Alt earned All-Conference honors.
