Phillips was a star in the classroom as well, earning spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2013-14.

Freshman (2013-14)
Phillips had an immediate impact on the Nebraska team as a freshman, appearing in all but one air rifle match for the Huskers.  In her first match as a Husker, Phillips fired personal-best scores and continued to improve as the season went on. She finished the season with a career-high score of 587 in smallbore and a 593 in air rifle. 

Phillips had a successful post-season as well. She finished first in the conference in smallbore and was the only Nebraska shooter to make it to the finals in air rifle, where she placed seventh in the conference and was named to two All-Conference Teams.  She made the second team in smallbore and was an honorable mention in air rifle. Phillips also qualified for the NCAA Championships where she helped the team to a fifth place finish. Phillips was named a First Team All-American by the NRA in smallbore and a Third Team All-American by the CRCA.

Off the range, Phillips was named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team for her service and leadership efforts throughout the community. She also earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar Athlete Roll in the fall semester.
