The Amateur Squad will see all four members return from last year’s team including four-year returning member and dual-citizen Maddie Szeryk, who had another stellar season as Canada’s top-ranked female. The 21-year-old captured wins at the B.C. Amateur, Women’s Western and Dr. Donnis Invitational. Entering her senior year, Szeryk is coming off a collegiate season that saw her post seven top-10 finishes for the Aggies while setting a season-record scoring average (71.24) en route to earning a nod as a First-Team All-American. She also earned SEC Freshman of the year in 2014 while playing for the Aggies. Szeryk helped Canada finish ninth at the 2016 World Amateur as one of three Canadians to tee-it-up in chase of the Espirito Santo Trophy. Earlier in her career, she notched victories at the 2015 Ontario Women’s Amateur and 2013 Canadian Junior Girls Championship.
