The Waves ran off three straight NCAA Championships appearances between 2005-07 and finished no worse than seventh at any of them. In 2005 at the Meadows Course in Sunriver, Ore., Pepperdine was tied for the lead after two rounds before finishing fourth. In 2006, the Waves briefly held the lead during the final round at the Scarlet Golf Course in Columbus, Ohio, before adding a third-place trophy. Three-time All-American Eileen Vargas was the individual leader after each of the first three rounds and eventually tied for fourth place.
The Waves have been back to the NCAA Championships three more times since then (2009, 2010, 2012). The team’s most recent top-10 finish was ninth place in 2009.
