Bucknell sophomore outfielder Allyse Volpe has entered the NCAA’s transfer portal, sources informed JWOS.
Volpe enjoyed a stellar freshman campaign during the 2019 season, batting .399 with fifty-seven hits and a .442 on-base percentage. Despite missing a handful of games due to injury, she led the Patriot League in both batting average and on-base percentage. A third-team All-Region selection after the year, Volpe earned first-team all-conference honors and was named the Patriot League Rookie of the Year.
During the 2020 campaign, Volpe batted .352 on the shortened year, leading her team for the second season in a row. She also led the Bison in hits, runs scored, triples, and stolen bases.
A native of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, Volpe was previously a member of the Canadian Junior National Team. She is the first Bucknell player known to have entered the portal following Joey Lye’s resignation as head coach that was announced on Monday.
