University of Arizona men’s golfers Erik Oja and Trent Redfern were among a select of college golfers honored on Wednesday as Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars in a release by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in at least 50 percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke average under 76.00 in Division I and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2. Recipients must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at their colleges or universities.

A rising senior, Oja led UA with a 72.83 scoring average in 2012-13, posting a team-high 15 rounds at par or better. He recorded four top-10 finishes as a junior, with his best showing coming as a tie for fifth at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate in February.

The Sandviken, Sweden, native garnered first-team Pac-12 All-Academic honors following both his sophomore and junior seasons at UA.

Redfern wrapped up his collegiate eligibility in 2012-13 with the most productive season of his tenure with the Wildcats. The Austin, Texas, native carded a career-best 73.60 scoring average, good for third on the team, with 14 rounds at par or better. His best finish was a tie for eighth at the Itani Quality Homes Collegiate.

He was honored on the Pac-12 All-Academic second team for the second-consecutive year, and also earned honorable mention recognition following his sophomore season.

The 2013-14 Arizona men’s golf schedule will be released in the coming weeks. Follow @UAWildcatsGolf on Twitter and visit for all the latest information on the program.
