LEWISBURG, Pa. – Bucknell softball continued to rack up weekly awards from the Patriot League after wrapping up the third week of the season this past weekend at the Towson Invite. The league announced its most recent award winners Monday, and Meghan Kovac was named the Player of the Week, while Taylor Wolfgang receive a second straight Rookie of the Week honor.
In addition to the two Patriot League awards, pitcher Raeanne Geffert was selected as the Bison Athlete of the Week. The trio of award winners helped the Bison go 3-1 at the Towson Invite with two wins over St. John’s and one win over Quinnipiac.
Kovac hit .364 with a .636 slugging percentage and a .533 on-base percentage in Bucknell’s four games at the Towson Invite. The senior hit a three-run home run in her first at-bat of the weekend to help defeat Quinnipiac 12-9. It was the 15th home run of Kovac’s career, tying her for third in program history.
Wolfgang went 4-for-11 with two doubles and one homer. She had an .818 slugging percentage and a .417 on-base percentage. The freshman also showed her defensive prowess, picking two runners off of first base.
Geffert was dominant in both of Bucknell’s wins over St. John’s. In the first game, she took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of a 6-3 win. In the two games combined, Geffert allowed just two earned runs in 14 innings of work. She allowed seven hits and four walks while striking out 12.
Bucknell has earned five league awards through the first three weeks of the season. Wolfgang has been the Rookie of the Week twice, Kovac has one Player of the Week, and Geffert and Taylor Langtry have each won a Pitcher of the Week.
