BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Senior Jackie Ogden has been named an All-Patriot League honoree for a third straight year, as announced by the league on Wednesday. A three-time captain, Ogden again led the Varsity Eight which impressed throughout the season, including a win over Lafayette to capture the River Cup. Overall, the Mountain Hawks placed fifth in the Patriot League Championships, one spot higher than last year.
Ogden has been named the team’s Athlete of the Year on multiple occasions. This marks her fourth season on the Varsity Eight crew. Also a 2011 Academic All-Patriot League honoree, Ogden has made her mark on and off the water. She is very active in the Lehigh leadership program, serving as a team captain and a key veteran presence for a young Mountain Hawks’ squad.
Bucknell topped the All-Patriot League selections after winning its seventh straight league championship. In total, the Bison placed seven student-athletes on an All-League Team, including four on the first team.
The Mountain Hawks had a strong showing at the Patriot League Championships this past weekend, finishing fifth, its highest showing in recent memory.
