ROCHESTER, Mich. - The Oakland men's and women's swimming and diving teams proved their strength as a program is not only in the pool but in the classroom this week, when both teams were named to the College Swimming Coaches Association of America Scholar All-America teams for the spring semester of 2014.

Oakland was the lone Horizon League program to have both men's and women's teams earn the academic distinction, which goes to programs with a cumulative team grade-point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

The Golden Grizzlies posted a 3.37 team GPA for the women, the highest among Horizon League member schools and one of just three programs in the league to earn the team award.

Oakland's men's team combined for a 3.16 term GPA for the spring.

The Team Scholar All American Award is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester and again in the spring to recognize teams achieving a 3.0 in the semester coinciding with the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA/CCCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.
