On the heels of its 11th straight Summit League Championship swimming and diving title, Oakland University’s women’s swim team also has been recognized for its scholarship. The team has won All American Team honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).
CSCAA selects Scholar All American Teams after each semester – fall/winter and spring – among swimming teams that have a minimum 3.0 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale. OU’s women’s swim team earned the honor for the fall 2009 semester with a cumulative grade point average of 3.14.
“It’s a testament to all the hard work the women put forth,” said Shawn Kornoelje, assistant men’s and women’s swimming and diving coach. “I think they’re very motivated to get an education. Our swimmers come from high schools with really high academic standards – we try to recruit men and women who come here for an education as well as for the swimming.”
OU’s women’s swim team joins 112 other NCAA Division 1 women’s swim teams in earning the All American Team honor.
