WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Four members of the University of Arizona men's golf team earned Pac-12 All-Academic team honors, announced Commissioner Larry Scott on Thursday.

A student-athlete selected for the academic team must have at least a 3.0 overall grade point average and either be a starter or significant contributor.

"Our team knows the expectations at the beginning of each year," head coach Jim Anderson said.  "We expect their best in the classroom just the same as on the course.  I am particularly proud of this group’s accomplishments in the classroom this year because these guys were also leaders for our team on the course.  They set great examples for our team and prove that you can realize success at a very high level in sport and academics."

Both senior Erik Oja and junior Alex McMahon earned Pac-12 All-Academic First Team honors. Oja majored in Business Management and held a 3.90 GPA. McMahon, with one year left, is pursuing a Business Economics degree and currently has a 3.96 GPA.

Also receiving honors were seniors Benson Liu and Christian Colegrove. Both were honorable mentions for the All-Academic teams.

"Having four players recognized for this award is a credit to each of the guy’s hard work along with the support staff and commitment our university and CATS Academics has to each individual athlete," Anderson said.
