CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- The nine Patriot League women's lacrosse teams combined to place 141 student-athletes on the sport's Academic Honor Roll announced on Monday, led by Bucknell with 21 selections.
Closely following the Bison in overall selections were Lehigh (20), American (19) and Loyola University Maryland (18), while Holy Cross (15), Lafayette (15), Colgate (14), and Navy (12) also had double-figure totals.
Ten student-athletes who made the Women's Lacrosse Academic All-Patriot League Team in April also qualified for the sport's Academic Honor Roll, including three-time Patriot League Women's Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year Katelyn Miller of Bucknell. Miller was one of 11 student-athletes to make the Academic Honor Roll for a fourth season, a group that also included her teammates Emily Fask, Andrea Feldman, Lindsey Ferro, Elizabeth Gauf and Sophie Kleinert, American's Lauren Binstein, Nicole Lombardo and Alex Lugovina, Holy Cross' Sara Hennessey and Navy's Jill Coughlin.
Coughlin, an Oceanography (Honors) major at Navy, was one of three student-athletes who made the Academic All-Patriot League squad and turned in a 4.00 grade-point average in the spring semester. Lafayette senior Laura Kleiber (Economics and Art) and Lehigh junior Carli Sukonik (Design) also achieved that feat. Others who recorded a 4.00 GPA in the spring were Lugovina (Communication Studies), American freshmen Jackie Ferri (Accounting) and Abigail Thielemann (Undeclared), Boston University freshman Brynne Yarranton (Health Studies), Bucknell sophomore Charlotte O'Donnell (English) and juniors Cori Thielemann (Economics) and Alex Wallace (Managing for Sustainability), Lafayette junior Sarah Malone (International Affairs), Lehigh junior Emily Solenberger (Behavioral Neuroscience) and Navy junior Jess Fellows (Political Science).
To be eligible for the Spring Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average during the spring semester and participate in one of the Patriot League's winter or spring championship sports.
