Following a breakout sophomore campaign with the Sam Houston women's golf program, Jenna Phillips has been named to the Southland Conference All-Academic team.
Phillips, who posted a 4.0 GPA as a management major, had a great season on the links as well. She was a steady performer on the course, finished in the top 15 in her final five tournaments of the season, including a 14th place finish at the Southland Championships.
Her best finish of the year was a fourth-place finish at the UTRGV Invitational. In 10 tournaments this year Phillips put together a 76.34 scoring average. She had a low round of 70 at the Web.com Intercollegiate in Ponte Verde Beach Florida.
Phillips has posted a 4.0 GPA every semester at Sam Houston. She's a member of the Dean's List and the President's list.
Phillips is an active member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. In her two years, Phillips has participated in all but one tournament for the Bearkats, improving her scoring average from her freshman year by more than three strokes.
The All-Academic teams are voted on by a head coach, sports information director and academic/compliance staff member from each Southland Conference institution. Student-athletes must possess a 3.0 cumulative GPA, have completed one full academic year at the nominating institution and participated in at least 50 percent of the team's competition to qualify for All-Academic selection. Nominees who were also named to the All-Conference First Team or CoSIDA Academic All-District team are automatically named Southland All-Academic.
