TUSCAN, Ariz. – Canada’s Maddie Szeryk is quietly putting together quite the resume in her first season at Texas A&M and as a member of the National Amateur Squad.

On Tuesday, the 18-year-old shot her way up the leaderboard at the Wildcat Invitational at Sewailo Golf Club with a final-round 68, finishing in a tie for fifth place. Szeryk’s five-birdie effort lifted the Texas A&M Aggies to 5th place team finish.

More importantly, Szeryk’s finish marks the fifth time the dual-citizen has placed inside the top-5 in her freshman season at Texas A&M.

The No. 14 ranked Aggies have now played in eight events this season, meaning that Szeryk is on pace to finish inside the top-5 in over 50% of events played—not a bad stat to have, especially for a freshman.

Szeryk has built up experience internationally as well—she finished T15 this past summer representing Canada at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, Chi.

She will look to continue her trend next month when the Aggies head to Oxford, Miss., to tee-it-up at the Rebel Intercollegiate.
