This weekend, Bucknell hosted Army for a PRIDE game in support of the LGBTQ+ community at Bucknell. The Bison were seen wearing rainbow bows as they battled out matches against the knights (25-16, 25-21, 25-16). 

Though the Orange and Blue didn’t come out with a win, there were some standout performances posted throughout the game. In the first set, the Bison rallied close to the Knights with a score of 12-10 but the Knights pulled ahead to the end. 

The second start began with a Bucknell lead of 6-4 with a block from Bri Frazilus ’26 and Allie Lopez ’24 being a contribution. In the second, with the Black Knights leading 14–13, the Bison rallied for three set points due to two kills from Tijana Kostic ’26 and another Frazilus/Lopez block. 

“I think we had glimpses of great defense and aggressive swings but we struggled with maintaining that level of play,” Lisa Zoch ’23 said. “Army is a really strong team so consistency is key against them. Consistency is definitely something we’re focused on this week in practice to prepare for our matches this coming weekend.”

The Bison will now continue league play with four away matches.
