LEWISBURG, Pa.  – For the second consecutive cross country season, junior Christine Bendzinski was selected to the Academic All-Patriot League Team, announced by the league on Tuesday.

Bendzinski has now earned four Academic All-Patriot League citations in her career. She was selected to the Academic All-Patriot League Team during the cross country and track and field seasons last year. A member of the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll, Bendzinski holds a 3.73 cumulative GPA in cell biology and biochemistry.

A CoSIDA Academic All-District Team honoree, Bendzinski has been outstanding in her three seasons as a Bison runner. After just missing All-League honors with a 15th-place showing her rookie year, she has earned First Team status the past two seasons. At this year’s Patriot League Championships, she became the first Bucknell runner since 2006 to win the individual race, helping the Bison capture their 10th title in program history.
