LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Senior D.J. Magee and sophomore J.P. Raftery of the Bucknell men's golf squad were named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team on Monday. The Bison, who are coming off a third-place finish at the Patriot League Championship, grabbed two of the five spots on the All-Academic Team.
Raftery, an accounting and financial management major with a 3.54 cumulative grade-point average, was the silver-medalist at the Patriot League Championship for the second year in a row. It was a record-setting sophomore season for the Greenwich, Connecticut native, who broke school marks for scoring average in the fall season (72.3), spring season (71.6) and full season (72.0).
Raftery's 6-under-par 204 (67-68-69) was the best 54-hole total ever by a Bison at the Patriot League Championship. In 2016-17, Raftery shot 75 or better in 18 of his 19 rounds, with the one outlier a 78. He posted even-par or better in nine of those 19 rounds and had six top-10 finishes and five top-five finishes among his eight tournament appearances.
Magee wrapped up a strong four-year career with his best-ever finish at the Patriot League Championship. He placed T-13th, missing a spot on the All-Patriot League Team by just two strokes. Magee shot 70-73-71 (+4) over 54 holes at the PL Tournament, lowering his spring scoring averaged to 75.6.
Magee is a markets, innovation and design major with a 3.57 GPA.
Also named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team were Army's Dean Sakata, Loyola's Connor Flach, and Navy's Connor Tallman. Flach, a senior who finished one spot behind Raftery at the Patriot League Championship, was named Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
