Florida State women’s golf was unable to take the NCAA Columbus Regional, but the Seminoles are advancing.

FSU claimed a third place finish in Columbus on the final day of the 3-day regional on Wednesday. That’s unchanged from where it entered the day and a spot lower than it was following the first round on Monday.

The Seminoles will finish five strokes back of Florida and South Carolina, who tied for first place at +22. Florida State finishes at +27.

Advancing along with the Gators, Gamecocks and Seminoles is host Ohio State, Purdue and Michigan. The sixth-place Wolverines finished one stroke better than Colorado at +44 to advance.

The top individual finisher for Florida State was Kim Metraux, who shot +7 for the regional to finish tied for 11th. Florida’s Kelly Grassel and South Carolina’s Ana Pelaez each shot an even par to finish in a tie for first.

The top six teams move on to the NCAA Championships which begin on May 19 at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Illinois.
