CLEVELAND, Ohio – Sophomore Vlad Jandric of the Cleveland State University men's soccer team was named Academic All-Horizon League in an announcement made by the League office Friday afternoon.
Jandric was one of 12 men's soccer student-athletes in the League to be named to the team that honors players for their success on the field and in the classroom. Faculty athletics representatives from each institution voted to determine the composition of the teams.
Jandric owns a 3.74 cumulative grade point average in computer science.
Jandric has competed in 14 of 16 matches on the season, including each of the past 12. He has started in 10 of the past 11 matches, and his versatility has proved incredibly valuable recently. He has started six matches as an attacking midfielder, three in central defense and one as a holding midfielder. In his six starts in an advanced midfield role, Jandric owns four goals, including game-winning strikes against Oakland and Belmont.
The Horizon League recognizes student-athletes with Academic All-League honors in each of its 19 championship sports. To be eligible for Academic All-Horizon League consideration, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.20 or higher (based on a 4.00 scale) and have completed at least one year at the member institution, having earned 24 semester-hour or 36 quarter-hour credits.
After clinching a spot in the Horizon League Tournament last week, Cleveland State closes the regular season Friday, Nov. 3, by hosting Detroit Mercy at 7:00 p.m.
