CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – The Bucknell men's lacrosse team placed 25 student-athletes on the 2018 Patriot League Academic Honor Roll, the league office announced Wednesday.
Headlining the Bison honorees were two-time Academic All-Patriot League selections Christian Klipstein and Reed Malas. Malas, a junior Accounting & Financial Management, was also named to the 2018 All-Patriot League Second Team while Klipstein, a junior Psychology major, was previously recognized on the 2017 and 2016 All-Patriot League Second Teams.
Beyond Malas, three other 2018 All-Patriot League picks made the Academic Honor Roll: senior History major Benny Borgognone and senior Economics majors Sean O'Brien and Connor O'Hara. O'Brien was also tabbed as an Honorable Mention All-American by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.
Of Bucknell's 25 Patriot League Academic Honor Roll members, 18 also made the Dean's List for having a grade point average of at least 3.50. Three Bison recorded perfect 4.0 GPAs: Malas, freshman Brendan Egan and junior Interdepartmental major Jordy Elardo.
