With their win over Lehigh on Oct. 18, the Bison Women’s Soccer Class of 2018 marked their place in the history books, becoming the winningest class in program history. The win was the group’s 46th in their four years, which broke the tie with the Class of 2009. Win 47 came on Oct. 21 in a crucial Patriot League matchup against Boston University on Senior Day.

With their remarkable talent and leadership, the senior class has led the women’s soccer team to one Patriot League regular season championship and one Patriot League tournament championship. Five of the seven members of the class have won all-conference honors for the Orange and Blue. Boasting a 3.5 combined grade point average, all seven have earned a spot on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll for at least one season.

“This group of seniors has been a pleasure to coach in my three years. They have raised the expectations and standards of our program and what it takes and means to be a Bison women’s soccer player,” Head Coach Kelly Cook said.

“I will remember the group for their incredible dedication to the game and their ability to step up in the moments the team needed them the most,” she said.

The Bison have clinched a berth in the 2017 Patriot League Tournament and have one remaining league game as they fight to secure the top seed heading into the postseason. The Class of 2018 will look to defend their 2016 Patriot League Championship title and add to their outstanding list of accomplishments.

“I know this class will carry with them their hard work and dedication that has led the group to success in their college careers. They grew as leaders in their time at Bucknell and I look forward to following them in their post Bucknell successes,” Cook said.
