With the 2018 NCAA Division II Men’s Golf Championship field announcement on Friday, the University of Missouri-St. Louis men’s golf team is set to make the program’s 13th postseason trip, including its sixth straight and it’s seventh in the last eight years.
The Tritons will be one of 20 teams competing in the Midwest/Central Regional May 7-9 at the Findlay Country Club in Findlay, Ohio.
