COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M women’s golf head coach Trelle McCombs announced Wednesday the signings of Marijosse Navarro and Maddie Szeryk.
“Both Marijosse and Maddie bring a huge amount of experience into our program,” McCombs said. “I am so excited about our 2014 Class. They are both hard fighting competitors and will make an instant impact.”
Navarro intends to enroll at Texas A&M this spring and participate in the upcoming spring schedule with the Aggies. The Mexico City native was a three-time AJGA Genesis Shootout Champion along with being a member of the Mexico National Team.
“The thing I love about Marijosse is her quiet confidence that she takes to the course each and every round,” McCombs said. “I would classify her as a player that is sneaky long off the tee and deadly with the putter. I have watched MJ since she was about 12 years old and I knew then she was a special player.”
Additionally the Blessed Hope Academy attendee was a quarterfinalist at the 2012 US Women’s Amateur championship and participated in the World Amateur Team Championships in Argentina in 2010 and Turkey in 2012.
“I chose Texas A&M because coach McCombs is very friendly with her players,” Navarro said. “All of my teammates made me feel like I am at home when I am there.”
Szeryk will join the team next fall after graduating from Allen High School. Szeryk is reigning champion of the Canadian Junior Championship, the AJGA/CJGA Junior Championship and Canadian Future Links Ontario Tournament.
“Maddie is a player that has been good for a long time,” McCombs said. “We first put our eye on Maddie back when she was just in the 8th grade. She has become stronger in all areas of her game and I can’t wait for her to be here. She could be one of the fiercest competitors that I’ve been around in a long time.”
Additionally Szeryk has helped Allen High School the 2012 Texas State High School Championship, finishing third individually. Recently Szeryk finished second at the “Swing Fore the Cure” high school tournament at 16-under par.
"I am so excited about becoming an Aggie and playing for Coach McCombs,” Szeryk said. “Texas A&M is an outstanding university and I'm thankful to be a part of the program. Choosing Texas A&M was an easy decision, between the academic support and world-class facilities available, achieving my goals of earning a degree and being a part of a national championship team are attainable."
The Texas A&M Women’s Golf team resumes play in the spring at the FSU Match-Up in Tallahassee Feb. 14-16. Follow the team on aggieathletics.com or on twitter @AggieWomensGolf.
