LEWISBURG, Pa. – The Bucknell field hockey team had 20 players named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll, the league announced Thursday. The Bison, who have had 46 players earn the honor over the past two seasons, led the league with the most players honored.
Headlining the list for the Bison was freshman Marisa Morakis, who posted a perfect 4.0 GPA as a biomedical engineering major this fall. All six of Bucknell’s seniors – Emma Fitzgerald, Emily Goodloe, Kelsy Kauffman, Amy Mucelli, Sarah Ross, and Anna Wills – earned the honor for the fourth straight year.
Wills was an Academic All-Patriot League selection this past fall, as was sophomore Nicole Rupnik.
In all, Patriot League field hockey teams combined to place 109 student-athletes on the Academic Honor Roll, with each of the seven schools having a double-digit total.
To be eligible for the Fall Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average in the fall semester and participate in one of the Patriot League's seven fall championship sports.
