Seventy-two teams and 24 individuals were selected to compete at one of four regional championships, each featuring 18 teams and six individuals.
“We are excited that we will be heading to the Austin Regional,” BYU head coach Carrie Roberts said. “I see a lot of beatable teams and we are looking forward to competing.”
BYU recorded two first-place team victories during the 2017-18 campaign, including a playoff win against Pepperdine at the 2018 WCC Championships.
The Cougars captured all three of the major postseason individual honors for the 2017-18 season for the first time under Robert’s helm. Senior Kendra Dalton was named the WCC Player of the Year for the second-straight season, while Coach Roberts received the WCC Coach of the Year nod for the third year in a row. Naomi Soifua was named the 2017-18 WCC Freshman of the Year.
