She qualified for four events and played 11 competitive rounds. She recorded one top-20 finish, tying for 20th at the C-USA Championship.
As a Freshman (2004-05): Silk saw action in five of the 11 events in her first year in the UCF program. Her low round of the year was a 7-over 79 and her best finish of the year was a tie for 23rd in the Hatter Fall Classic, where she competed as an individual.
