To be eligible for the Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average in the spring semester and be awarded a varsity letter in one of the Patriot League's six winter or 10 spring championship sports.
Headlining Bucknell’s selections to the Academic Honor Roll were senior Erin Curatola, the 2008 Patriot League Softball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, and sophomore Lauren Trosch, who was one of two softball players in the league to achieve a 4.0 grade-point average.
