LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Led by another perfect 4.0 semester from 2018 Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year and Academic All-American Jeff Gottesman, the Bucknell baseball team placed 19 student-athletes on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
Gottesman, an accounting and financial management major who still has a 4.0 cumulative grade-point average through the end of his junior year, was one of 10 student-athletes across the league to compile a 4.0 this spring. Gottesman, who was one of the top pitchers in the conference in 2018, joined sophomore Tyler Wincig on the 12-man Academic All-Patriot League Team earlier this spring.
Patriot League Pitcher of the Year Connor Van Hoose, who is now pitching in the New York Yankees minor league system, made the Academic Honor Roll in his senior season, as did battery-mate and fellow All-Patriot League selection Evan Klugerman.
In order to be eligible for the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must achieve a minimum 3.20 GPA during the semester that coincides with his or her sport's championship season. Bucknell's 19 baseball selections were one shy of the league lead. Lafayette and Lehigh both garnered 20.
