Swimming and Diving Teams Defend National Championships

OBU captured national titles in both the men’s and women’s NAIA Swimming & Diving National Championships in March at the Oklahoma City Community College Natatorium. It is the fourth straight title for the men, dating back to the program’s inception in the 2011-12 season. The Lady Bison earned their third consecutive title. Bison head coach Dr. Sam Freas was named both the men’s and women’s NAIA Coach of the Year.

OBU took home titles in 13 out of 20 women’s events, scoring 745 points. The Bison men claimed 11 of 20 titles and finished with a score of 798.5. Bison swimmers set five new NAIA National Championship records at the three-day meet. OBU also swept the meet awards, claiming a share of all eight honors.
