The Buckeyes are headed to the NCAA Championships for the first time since 2011.

Ohio State entered the NCAA Myrtle Beach Regional as a No. 8 seed with an outside shot of advancing to the NCAA Championships, but thanks to dominating performances from Caleb Ramirez and Will Voetsch, who shot a combined 17-under par, the Buckeyes finished second, behind only Illinois.

With the second-place finish, Ohio State punched its ticket to the NCAA Championships, becoming just the 12th team in the last decade to advance as an eight seed.

Ramirez played the best 54-hole stretch of his career, shooting a fourth-place 207 (68-69-70) for the second top-5 finish of his career. Ramirez holed 16 birdies in three rounds for his nine-under finish – Ohio State's best score.

Voetsch was not far behind him with his best 54-hole as well. Voetsch finished eight under par, after shooting a 208 on the tournament – good a sixth-place tie. It was his third top-10 finish of his last four appearances.

The Buckeyes will now head down to Fayetteville, Arkansas on May 24-29 to play in the NCAA Championships.
