The Mikuni Sushi Shootout women’s collegiate golf championship has been scheduled for Lincoln’s Catta Verdera Country Club Feb. 11-13. Oakland’s Holy Names University will host the inaugural NCAA event.

"We have eight women's collegiate golf teams coming and each team will bring five players to compete for their team," stated HNU head coach Chris Oetinger.  "The focus is on the team score, although we will award the top individual golfers as well."

Oetinger said they are hoping to make this an annual tournament with many NCAA colleges from the Western States. Schools from California and Hawaii will be competing in this initial event.

Teams will arrive Feb. 11 and participate in practice rounds. The competition begins 8 a.m. both days and Feb. 12 will feature a 36-hole format. The Shootout will conclude Feb. 13.

Mikuni’s Restaurant, Beach Hut Deli and Chic-fil-A will provide meals for the golfers.

Catta Verdera CC is located at 1111 Catta Verdera in Lincoln.
