Texas A&M senior golfer Maddie Szeryk was named a First Team All-American by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association Tuesday. Szeryk, who received All-America honors in 2015 and 2017, becomes the first three-time All-American in program history.

Szeryk finishes her career with Texas A&M career records for stroke average (71.61), birdies (495), eagles (11) and rounds played (140). She set the NCAA record with 91 career rounds of even par or better and an SEC record with 32 Top 10 finishes.

She holds the school records for lowest 18-hole (63/-8), 36-hole (135/-9) and 54-hole scores (203/-10). She holds four of the five best single-season stroke averages in program history, setting the school record with a 71.24 mark in 2016-17.

In the 2017-18 season, Szeryk set single-season records for par-or-better rounds (28) and birdies (134), and posted the second-best stroke average (71.29) in school history. She finished in the top 20 of every tournament she competed in during her senior season, and was named SEC Golfer of the Week twice.

Szeryk finished 17th at the 2018 NCAA Championship, her second consecutive year with a top 20 finish at the event. The Allen, Texas native won four events in her college career, and her score counted toward the team total in 97.0% of her career rounds.
