INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA Division III Men’s Golf Committee released its 43-team postseason field on Monday, May 6, including the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference champion Penn State Altoona men’s golf team.

The Lions earned their berth to the NCAA Division III Championships thanks to their AMCC championship win this past October. This win handed Penn State Altoona the conference’s automatic bid to compete in the DIII Championships. The program’s appearance in the national tournament is its seventh all-time and third in a row.

Penn State Altoona is one of 34 Division III men’s golf teams that secured a spot in the national tournament in Pool A through their respective conferences’ automatic qualification berths. Additionally, one team was selected from Pool B, which consists of independent institutions and institutions that are members of conferences that do not meet the requirements for automatic qualification, and the final eight berths were at-large selections to Pool C.

A total of 221 individuals will participate in the tournament.

The 2024 NCAA Division III Championships will be held at Boulder Creek Golf Club in Boulder City, Nev., Tuesday through Friday, May 14 through 17. The field of 43 teams will be cut down to the top 18 squads and the top six individuals following the first 36 holes of competition.
