The Scoop
• Stanford will be aiming for its first national title in school history when it takes on a 24-team field this week during the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships at Tulsa Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.

• The Cardinal punched its ticket to the NCAA Championships on the strength of a fifth-place finish at the NCAA East Regionals in Tallahassee, Fla. Stanford was 11th through the first round and sixth after 36 holes before moving up one spot on the final day. The Cardinal (291-286-289) was 2-over for the event. Mariah Stackhouse and Lauren Kim tied for 11th at 3-under.

The Postseason
• This season’s NCAA Championships trip will be the fifth straight for the Cardinal and 29th overall.

• Stanford has six top-5 finishes at the NCAA Championships, including a runner-up finish in 2000.

• Sixteen Cardinal teams have finished in the top-10 with the most recent such finish coming in the form of a fifth-place showing in 2007.

• This is the 22nd consecutive postseason appearance for the Cardinal, a streak that began in 1993.

• Stanford tied for 13th at the 2013 NCAA Championships in Athens, Ga. The Cardinal settled for a 48-over 1,200 (290-288-301-321) at the four-day tournament. Mariah Stackhouse was the highest Cardinal finisher with a 7-over 295 to share 29th place. Lauren Kim tied for 42nd and Mariko Tumangan tied for 85th. Stackhouse, Kim and Tumangan each return for this season’s showdown. Tumangan tied for 38th as a freshman at the 2012 NCAA Championships.

• There have been a number of outstanding team and individual performances for the Cardinal throughout the season, though nothing tops what happened at the Pac-12 Conference Championships. Stanford rallied on the final day of the event to earn the Pac-12 Conference title -- its second in program history -- when the Cardinal went from third after its second round to raising the conference trophy on the strength of a one-stroke win over Arizona. It was the program’s first Pac-12 team title since 1999.

• The feat came against a premier field which made the Pac-12 Championships one of the best showcases of collegiate golf this season. Six Pac-12 teams were ranked among the top-11 in the nation heading into the tournament, including defending NCAA champion and top-ranked USC.

• The Cardinal has five top-10 finishes in its last five NCAA Regional cameos. In fact, its 14th-place finish in 2009 was the program’s only finish ever outside of the top 10.

The Numbers
• Marissa Mar will be making her third career NCAA Championships appearance. It will be third for Tumangan and second for both Kim and Stackhouse. This week marks the NCAA Championships debut for Casey Danielson.

• The Cardinal has 12 top-10 finishes in 12 events this season. Stackhouse has notched two wins and nine top-10 finishes.

• Stanford is ranked 12th by Golfstat entering the week. Mariah Stackhouse is ranked fifth by Golfstat among individuals with Lauren Kim checking in at 16th. Casey Danielson is 27th.

The Field
• A field of 24 teams will compete for the team championship, while 126 student-athletes will be competing for the individual crown over four days in Tulsa.

• Included in the field will be 13 of top 20 teams in Golfstat’s top-25 rankings.

The Course
• The par-70 Tulsa Country Club will play at 6,194 yards during the NCAA Championships. Tulsa Country Club is one of Tulsa’s most noted landmarks, founded in 1908 and located just outside downtown.
