AUSTIN, TX (KXXV) -

No. 10-seed Texas A&M opens the NCAA Women’s Golf Austin Regional on Monday, May 7, with tee times starting at 8:50 a.m. at the University of Texas Golf Club. The Aggies, playing in an NCAA Regional for the 18th straight season, look finish in the top six of the three-day, 54-hole tournament to earn a berth to the NCAA Championship.

The Austin Regional includes 18 teams, which includes Texas A&M, and six additional individuals. The top six teams, and the top three individuals not on an advancing team, move on to the NCAA Championships in Stillwater, Oklahoma, which start May 18. The Aggies are looking to advance to the NCAA Championship for the seventh time in 11 years under head coach Trelle McCombs.

Senior Maddie Szeryk leads the Aggie lineup, having finished 17th-or-better in all three of her previous NCAA Regional appearances. Szeryk, who recently was named to the All-SEC First Team for the fourth consecutive season, owns SEC records for career stroke average (min. 75 rounds, 71.62), career top 10 finishes (31) and par-or-better rounds (87). Szeryk advanced to the NCAA Championship as an individual last season, finishing 13th.

Sophomore Courtney Dow makes her second career appearance at NCAA Regionals, and ranks fourth all-time at Texas A&M with a 74.15 stroke average entering the event. Dow ranks in the Top 100 nationally with 84 birdies, and has counted her score towards the team total in 90.7% of her career rounds.

The Aggies round out their lineup with three freshmen, Amber Park, Morgan Lay and Ariana Saenz. Park and Saenz each picked up an SEC Freshman Golfer of the Week award this season. The Aggies are starting three freshmen at NCAA Regionals for the first time since 2014, a freshman class that would go on to win an SEC Championship, post a Top 10 national finish, and produce four of the top 10 career stroke averages in Texas A&M history.

In addition to Texas A&M, Arkansas, Texas, Michigan State, Florida, Auburn, Oklahoma, Houston, Miami (Fla.), Baylor, BYU, East Carolina, Texas Tech, Virginia Tech, UTSA, Georgetown, Houston Baptist and Missouri State are competing on the par 72 / 6,341 yard course for a spot in Stillwater.

Live scoring for the event is available on golfstat.com.
