Women’s golf travels to SEC Championships with momentum

The Texas A&M women’s golf team faces one of its biggest challenges of the season this weekend at the SEC Championships in Hoover, Alabama.

The No. 16 Aggies head into postseason play following a decisive victory at the Rebel Intercollegiate, earning their second win in the last event of the regular season.

Four players finished in the top 10 of the individual leaderboard, including sophomore No. 9 Marijosse Navarro, who has won twice this season, and emerging freshman No. 26 Maddie Szeryk, who has notched top-five finishes in each of her last two events.

“I think we are doing pretty well,” Szeryk said. “We’re all still working hard and we’re working well as a team and I think we are all really excited to head into postseason.”

Szeryk owns the team’s lowest round of the season after firing a -7 (65) in the second round of the “Mo”Morial back in September.

Heightened expectation certainly awaits the Aggies in Hoover, Alabama. They never finished outside of fifth place as a team this season and only once had fewer than two members in the top-10 on the individual leaderboard.

The field this week will be among the most competitive in the country —10 of the top 25 players in the country hail from SEC schools and eight of 14 SEC teams are ranked inside the top 25.

The Aggies seek their first conference title since their transition from the Big 12, but first they must overcome the likes of No. 5 South Carolina, No. 6 LSU, No. 8 Arkansas and No. 9 Mississippi State.

Szeryk believes the team’s largest obstacle will be to stay true to their process and not get caught up in the scores that other schools and players post.

“I think just not focusing on what everyone else is saying or thinking,” Szeryk said. “Just playing our game and not worrying about what the other teams are doing. Because we can’t control what they are doing. They could be having the rounds of their lives or we could be. We can’t control what they are doing so just focus on our game.”

The championships feature 54 holes divided into three rounds running Friday through Sunday.
