ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference released its 2018 All-Sportsmanship Team for spring sports on Thursday, and it included four Penn State Altoona student-athletes.

All teams that compete for an AMCC championship select one member from each of their rosters who displays good sportsmanship throughout the season to be included on the All-Sportsmanship Team. These individuals are selected by vote of their teammates.

Such sportsmanship shall be evident toward teammates, coaches, opponents, officials, and fans. The player must also serve as a positive representative of school spirit when a spectator at other teams' sporting events.

The four Penn State Altoona student-athletes voted by their teammates to the AMCC Spring All-Sportsmanship Team are:

  • Baseball: William Zdinak (Centennial, CO/Cherry Creek)
  • Softball: Haley Giedroc (Howard, PA/Bald Eagle)
