EAST LANSING, Mich. – Minnesota men’s tennis junior Leandro Toledo was named a unanimous All-Big Ten First Team selection at the at the Big Ten Tournament banquet in East Lansing, Mich. Thursday night. The first-team accolade was the third in as many seasons for Toledo in the Maroon and Gold.

Toledo was one of four unanimous selections, joining Penn State’s Leonard Stakhovsky, Ohio State’s Peter Kobelt, and Big Ten Men’s Tennis Athlete of the Year, Farris Gosea of Illinois.

A two-time Big Ten Men’s Tennis Athlete of the Week Award winner, Toledo finished the regular season with a 17-6 singles record before adding another win over Sam Monette Thursday in the Gophers’ first-round Big Ten Tournament loss to Indiana. All his wins came at the top position in the lineup and seven of his triumphs were against ranked opponents. 

He defeated four fellow All-Big Ten First Team honorees and downed both Stakhovsky and Kobelt in the same weekend. The Hamburg, Germany native is currently ranked 42nd in the country in singles and reached as high as No. 39. In doubles, Toledo was 13-10, including a 12-7 mark with Eric Frueh.

In addition to Toledo’s award, fellow junior Jack Hamburg was recognized as one of 12 Sportsmanship Award honorees. The Sportsmanship Award recognizes student-athletes who have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. These student-athletes must also be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.

Hamburg also took home the Sportsmanship Award in 2013.
