This is Munoz's third time on the All-American Scholar team, while Nordqvist made the list for the second consecutive year. This is Murcia's first All-American Scholar honor. Munoz, the Edith Cummings Munson award winner and NCAA Champion, holds a 3.92 in psychology. Murcia carries a 3.91 in art and Nordqvist earned the honor with a 3.55 in interdisciplinary studies.
The Sun Devils finished fifth at the NCAA Championships. They ended the season ranked fourth by Golfstat and the NGCA/Golf World and fifth by Golfweek.
