Musk, a junior from San Antonio, Texas, finished the season with three top 10 finishes on the season, including a fourth place finish at the Butler Invitational. A health major with a 3.70 GPA, she recorded a 77.84 stroke average to earn honorable mention all-conference. Musk, who finished tied for 11th at the conference championship, completed the season with the ninth-best stroke average in Sam Houston women's golf history.
The Academic All-Southland team is voted on by the head coaches, sports information directors and academic advisors from each Southland Conference university. 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 the all-academic squad.
