Senior catcher Sarah Coss (Bowie, Md./Bishop McNamara) and junior pitcher Cassie Weiss (Avella, Pa./McGuffey) were named Second Team All-PAC, while freshman shortstop Sammie Weiss (Avella, Pa./McGuffey) was tabbed to the honorable mention team.

Coss led the team and ranked 15th in the PAC with a .372 batting average and 20 RBI, while backstopping the Bison pitching staff. Her 12 extra-base hits, .402 on-base percentage and .504 slugging percentage were all team-highs.
