Hadeler was 8-2 in singles with all 10 of his matches coming in Drury’s lead singles position. The native of Heilshoop, Germany was ranked fourth in singles within the region and helped the Panthers to a 10-0 record to go with a number eight national ranking in NCAA-II.
Hadeler was last year’s Player of the Year in the Midwest Region, was a First Team all-conference selection, and he owns a 58-15 career record in singles play.
Drury’s season was halted on March 12 due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
