History was made this weekend in Davis Gym for the Bucknell Women’s Volleyball team while playing against patriot league opponents American and Loyola. 

Bucknell collected its first ever series sweep against American on Saturday — 25-22, 19-25, 25-17, 25-22 — after having beaten them over five matches earlier in the season. 

“This weekend was extra special for me since Saturday was our senior day and my last home game ever,” said Camryn Anderson ’23. “Our 2-0 record this weekend secured our spot in the Patriot League Tournament, which the volleyball team hasn’t made in 12 years. I’m so proud of my team for everything we have accomplished this week and can’t wait to see how the tournament goes.”

Following the second match, the Bison secured their postseason spot for the first time in 12 years, sitting at 14-10 overall and 7-8 in the Patriot League. 

Freshman Tijana Kostic ’26 was seen scoring a season high of 15 kills throughout the matches. 

With the victory, the Bison maintained their fifth-place standing in the Patriot League while heading into their match against American. 

All four seniors had an impact on the result after being honored prior to the match. Anderson, Sandra Korusiewicz ’23, Lisa Zoch ’23 and Sarina Singer ’23 all rotated through in the four sets.

In the second set, kills from Anderson and Valentina Feigl ’24 put the team ahead. Zoch was seen with eight kills and seven digs throughout the four sets. 

Bucknell wraps up regular season play at Navy next Sunday at 7 p.m. with the Patriot League Tournament beginning just two days after.
