Hadash Named To Capital One Academic All-District At-Large Team
DES MOINES, Iowa - The Drake men's tennis senior Jonathan Hadash (Lapid, Israel) earned recognition for his efforts in the classroom as he was tabbed a first-team Capital One Academic All-America All-District VI At-Large selection.
Hadash boasts a 3.91 GPA, majoring in accounting, and he helped Drake to a No. 48 ITA ranking, and the Bulldogs' sixth NCAA Tournament berth on the strength of an 18-3 singles record.
He was also named a first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete and MVC Elite 18 selection for the second-straight season in 2012.
To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his/her current institution. Nominated athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's games at the position listed on the nomination form (where applicable).
Hadash advances to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
