(Kansas City, Mo.) – Kansas City’s Nino Hasandedic and Tomas Patino were among five men’s tennis players named to the Summit League Academic All-League Team on Tuesday.

The squad was voted on by the Faculty Athletic Representatives and Sports Information Directors of the league's nine member institutions. Student-athletes were chosen for the honor based on their academic and athletic performances this season.

Regular season and tournament champion Kansas City led the way with two selections in Hasandedic and Patino. Joining the duo are Western Illinois’ Mitch Granger, South Dakota State’s Parker Lawley and Fort Wayne’s Martin Muadi. Three of the Academic All-League selections (Hasandedic, Lawley and Patino) were previously named All-Summit League.

Hasandedic, who has a 3.97 GPA in business administration, posted a 3-1 Summit League record at No. 1 singles and is 13-6 overall this season. He is a two-time selection to the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence and the Academic All-League squads.

Patino, owner of a 3.73 GPA in environmental sciences, went 3-0 in Summit League matches and has a 13-5 overall record. He has earned Distinguished Scholar accolades and Academic All-League recognition.

To be eligible for the Academic All-League team, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 (on a 4.0 scale), completed at least one full academic year at the current institution and participated in 50 percent of their team's competitions.
