LEWISBURG, Pa. – Bucknell’s Blake Buchholz was nearly flawless in a 3-0 sweep of Loyola (Md.) on Saturday, and has been rewarded with Molten Rookie of the Week honors by the Patriot League. It is the second time this season she has received the award.
Buchholz had an outstanding performance in Bucknell’s 3-0 sweep of Loyola (Md.) on Saturday as she just missed a double-double with 14 kills and nine digs while recording a .609 hitting percentage.
