LEWISBURG, Pa. – Two Bucknell softball players were voted to the Academic All-Patriot League Team, which was released by the league office on Wednesday. Junior Celina Antonellis and senior Carolyn Wan represent the Bison on the 12-player team.
Antonellis adds the Academic All-League honor to the CoSIDA Academic All-District citation she received last week. Through five semesters, the junior carries a perfect 4.0 GPA as a double major in political science and English-creative writing. Antonellis receives the award for the first time in her career after playing in 31 games this season, including 19 as a starter. She is also a two-time member of the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
Wan, a double major in international relations and economics, also receives the Academic All-Patriot League award for the first time in her career. She leads the Patriot League in on-base percentage at .483 and has led the Bison in that category in each of the past two seasons. Wan is a two-time member of the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
In head coach Courtnay Foster's two seasons with the team, the Bison have had four players voted to the Academic All-Patriot League Team and one player, Amanda Fazio in 2016, earn the Patriot League Softball Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award.
Bucknell recently wrapped up the season at 23-20 overall, finishing with its third straight winning record.
