BROOKINGS, S.D.(KWSN)—South Dakota State University’s Megan Waytashek was named to the Academic All-Summit League Women’s Basketball Team Thursday as voted on by the institution’s faculty athletics representatives and sports information directors. 

The Lino Lakes, Minn., native was one of five student-athletes selected for the elite honor, and was joined by Fort Wayne’s Amanda Hyde and Haley Seibert, South Dakota’s Nicole Seekamp and Western Illinois’ Ashley Luke. For the second consecutive season, all five student-athletes were also First Team All-Summit League selections.

Waytashek, who posted a 3.97 GPA as a mechanical engineering major, earned her second consecutive academic all-league selection after leading the Jackrabbits in scoring (11.8 ppg) and free throw percentage (.918). She set the school record and finished the season ranked sixth in the NCAA in free throw percentage.

A Capital One Academic All-District selection, the junior had a string of 32-straight made free throws and scored in double figures 18 times this season. She earned Summit League Player of the Week and Summit League Mid-Major Player of the Week honors during the season.

South Dakota State finished the 2013-14 season 26-10 overall, winning The Summit League regular-season title. The Jacks reached the semifinals of the Women’s NIT, winning a school record four postseason games.
