BOISE, Idaho - Senior Teal Vosburgh earned an invitation to the prestigious Rivera/ITA All-American Championships and will begin play in the prequalifying rounds. Vosburgh is the first Bronco to compete at the tournament since Lauren Megale lost in the qualifying stage at the 2010 event.

"Making All-Americans has been a goal of mine since freshman year," said Vosburgh. "For it to finally be coming true, I'm really excited. I'm excited to represent the team down there."

Vosburgh is set to start her run Oct. 3, at Pepperdine, where she will look to advance to the qualifying rounds. The qualifier and main draw will be played in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

The prequalifying round consists of a 64-woman draw played Saturday and Sunday. The top eight advance to the qualifier, which is another 64-woman draw. The qualifying round is played Oct. 6 and 7, with the top eight advancing to the main draw.

The main draw, played Oct. 8-11, is a 32-woman draw. The top 24 collegiate women in the country were selected for the draw and await the arrival of the top eight finishers from the qualifying rounds.

"I know there's going to be a lot of really good competition so I'm just preparing for every match to be a battle," said Vosburgh. "I'm pretty confident. I spent the summer here training and working on a lot of things. I feel ready. This is the most prepared I've ever been going into a season."
