LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Bucknell senior forward Kendall Ham, the second-leading goal-scorer in Bucknell women's soccer history who led the team to Patriot League titles in each of the last two seasons, was named to the United Soccer Coaches All-East Region Third Team on Tuesday. This is Ham's third straight All-Region selection. She had already become the first Bison to make the All-Region squad more than once, and now she is a well-deserved three-time selection.
Earlier this fall, Ham also received First Team All-Patriot League honors for the third year in a row, and she repeated as the league's Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She was named Patriot League Tournament MVP after her stunning hat trick against Navy in the league final. All three goals came in the first 21 minutes of the game, and it was just the fourth hat trick in Patriot League Tournament history. Ham logged 12 goals and three assists for 27 points on the season. The 12 goals ranked second in the Patriot League, and her 27 points tied for the most in the conference.
Ham produced four multi-goal games this season, all against conference opponents, and her 41 career goals are second-most in Bucknell history. A Third Team All-America selection in 2016, Ham was named to the MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List earlier this fall and was listed No. 80 on the Top Drawer Soccer midseason national Top-100 Player list.
Off the field, Ham carries a 3.88 grade-point average in biology. She has served as a study group leader and tutor at Bucknell, and last summer she served as a student intern in the Johns Hopkins University Otolaryngology Lab. Ham worked with two doctors studying YAP, a gene involved in non-small-cell lung cancer.
