LEWISBURG, Pa. – Academic All-American and Patriot League Scholar Athlete of the Year Kendall Ham was one of three Bucknell women’s soccer student-athletes to earn a perfect 4.0 grade-point average in the 2016 fall semester, and led a group of 22 Bison on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.

Ham, a biology major, also became the program’s first All-American in the fall. Karli Cirovski (markets and innovative designs), a NSCAA Scholar All-Region honoree, and Sarah Bresette (sociology) also earned 4.0s in the fall, and as a team the Bison combined for a terrific 3.51 GPA.

Seniors Alexis Gannon (neurology), a CoSIDA Academic All-American and two-time Academic All-Patriot League selection, Cora Climo (sociology) and Kelsey Witt (biomedical engineering) each made the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll for the fourth straight year.

Jackie Ham (accounting and financial management) made the Honor Roll after earning a spot on the Academic All-Patriot League squad, while earning CoSIDA All-District Team accolades.

Statistically, Bucknell is coming off its best season in program history. The Bison set program marks in wins (16) and win percentage (.850) en route to capturing their first Patriot League title since 2005 and advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in school history.

To be eligible for the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average in the semester of their sport’s competition.
