DURHAM, N.C. – Duke concluded its 2016-2017 season the way head coach Jamie Green had hoped it would — on the 18th green of Rich Harvest Farms at the NCAA Championship.

Although the Blue Devils were unable to claim their first national title, the team managed to accomplish everything they had prepared all year for. Claiming bragging rights in the ACC as this year's tournament champions, the program notched its eighth conference championship in one of the most challenging weekends in college golf.

With the victory, Duke also secured a bid to the Baton Rouge NCAA Regional, where they would go on to finish second in a field that featured a wide selection of talent.

Making the cut as one of the top five teams to advance from their respective regional, the Blue Devils advanced to the season's final tournament in Sugar Grove, Ill. as one of only 30 teams in the entire country.

Head coach Jamie Green recapped the season with an underlined sense of optimism as well as pride in all his team was able to achieve.

“It's disappointing; I know the guys would have loved to play more golf this week,” Green said. “I hope they'll let that sting go away quickly and remember the things they accomplished this year. You know? Getting here when 270 some-odd teams didn't make it. We wanted to end our season on the 18th green here at Sugar Grove at Rich Harvest Farms and they did just that. And that's because of a lot of really good play throughout the spring. There's a lot to feel good about.”
