- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2016, 2017)
- Tom Osborne Citizenship Team (2017)
Dylan looks to come out during the 2017-18 season in strides. After winning 10 singles matches and 4 doubles, he looks to add to those numbers and be a force on this Husker’s men’s tennis team.
“Dylan has lots of experience as a sophomore competing all over the world but lacked match play this past summer, which has kept him playing catch-up right now. We hope he continues to work hard and keep improving on a day-to-day and week-to-week basis in our program.” Coach Kerry McDermott said.
Dylan Bednarczyk joined the Nebraska men’s tennis program as a highly sought-after recruit, and added a high level of talent and determination to the team. Bednarczyk paced the Huskers with 10 singles victories this season, including a team-best three Big Ten victories. Bednarczyk played all of his matches out of the top two spots for the Huskers. One of the top young players in Canada, Bednarczyk made an instant impact in the Husker lineup in the spring of 2017, earning four doubles victories with three different teammates, and all four victories from the No. 1 spot.
Off the court, Bednarczyk earned a spot on the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.
Bednarczyk attended the Niagara Academy of Sports, a specialized school for University-bound students. The school focused on high performance sports training and a personalized academic approach.
The son of Marian and Dorota Bednarczyk, Dylan was born on Sept. 7, 1998 in London, Ontario, Canada. Dylan has one older brother Daniel, 22. Dylan is double majoring in finance and economics. He is a two-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll selection. He was a member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team in 2017. He chose Nebraska over Kentucky, Tennessee, Auburn, Illinois, Michigan State and Ohio State. He said he chose Nebraska because of the Huskers’ rich tradition in athletics and discipline in academics.
