Eight Buckeyes who were part of the 2018-19 campaign return for the 2019-20 season. Niki Schroeder, medalist of 2019 Big Ten Championships, graduated but the Buckeyes return five starters from their Big Ten championship and four from their NCAA Regional squad.

Aneka Seumanutafa, a WGCA second team All-American last year, was a first team All-Big Ten selection and the Big Ten Freshman of the Year. Seumanutafa’s 72.0 scoring average ranked ninth nationally and second among freshmen. In all, returning Buckeyes accounted for 115 counted rounds a season ago.

Buckeye head coach Therese Hession is entering her 29th season in Columbus. Hession has led the Buckeyes to 26 NCAA Regionals, 18 NCAA Championships appearances and 11 Big Ten championships in her 28 seasons. The seven-time Big Ten Coach of the Year guided the Buckeyes to another NCAA appearance last season.

In addition, Stacy Snider enters her fourth season as an assistant on the Ohio State coaching staff. Snider, who has five years of Division I head coaching experience, was a two-time All-Big Ten selection at Michigan State (2001, 2002) and former professional golfer.
