Misutka Lands Spot on PL Women’s Cross Country Academic All-League Team
LEWISBURG, Pa.- The Bucknell Bison women’s cross country team continued its historically strong academic standing by placing junior runner Keeley Misutka on the league’s annual Academic Team.
Misutka, a chemistry major from Pittsburgh and North Allegheny High School, owns a sparkling grade point average of 3.96, an outstanding mark regarding chemistry’s demanding coursework and the rigorous responsibilities of Division I athletics. She has been just as successful on the running fields. She was a 2022 All-League performer. In the 2023 season, Misutka collected four top-20 placements. She started the season, finishing 20th at the Harry Lang Invitational. Misutka earned 11th running in her home territory outside Pittsburgh at the RMU Colonial Invitational. In the ECAC/IC4A Championships Open Race, the junior finished fourth. At last weekend’s Patriot League Championships, her 20th place finish was the third-best Bison time, allowing the squad to grab fourth.
Misutka and the Bison aren’t finished with the season. They will run at the Mid-Atlantic Regionals on Nov. 10. Lehigh University will serve as the host site. Bucknell already raced on Lehigh’s course at the Paul Short Run on Sept. 30.
