UTEP sophomore Martin Simonsen was one of six golfers named to the Conference USA All-Academic Team on Thursday.

Simonsen has a 3.37 cumulative grade point average and is a pre-business major. He was joined on the squad by East Carolina's Erik Brady, Houston's Kyle Pilgrim, Marshall's Brian Anania, Memphis' Grant Milner and Tulsa's Chris Worrell.

A Gistrup, Denmark native, Simonsen leads the Miners with a 73.2 scoring average this season. He has been UTEP's top finisher in eight of the 10 tournaments he has competed in, with four top-five finishes and five top-20 showings. He was named the 2012 Conference USA Freshman of the Year en route to earning an individual bid to the NCAA Championships.

UTEP will participate in the Conference USA Championship Sunday through Tuesday in Texarkana, Ark.
