LEWISBURG, Pa. - The Bucknell women's rowing team pulled an amazing upset at the second annual Patriot League Championships Sunday to grab its first-ever league title.
Bison Head Coach Steve Kish was named the league's Coach of the Year, while the varsity eight received Boat of the Year honors.
Kish received his first-ever Patriot League Coach of the Year award for leading his team to the title, from last year's fourth-place finish, as voted upon by the other coaches in the league.
The Bison's varsity eight started out strong and fought well, turning in a finishing time of six minutes, 39.098 seconds, edging Navy and Colgate, whose finishing times were 6:41.555 and 6:42.864, respectively.
The winning boat consisted of coxswain-Coral Swartz, stroke-Kelly Henkler, 7-Jennie Trayes, 6-Kate Brewster-Duffy, 5-Christine Drasba, 4-Brittany Kaplan, 3-Page Kannor, 2-Lauren Olsen and bow-Sophie Bird. Both Navy and Colgate had defeated the Orange and Blue in past competition this season, but Bucknell took control from the very beginning and had a solid race.
