ALTOONA, Pa. — Penn State Altoona women’s tennis student-athletes Isabella Rhoades, of Tyrone, and Stephanie Swain, of Yadkin County, North Carolina, were voted to the second team of the All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference list, as the league announced its postseason awards on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
Rhoades and Swain were selected as a duo for their performance together this season in No. 3 doubles matches. The pair combined for a team-high eight overall doubles wins and four AMCC doubles wins, going 8-2 overall with a 4-0 mark in the conference.
Rhoades and Swain posted victories over all four AMCC opponents they faced during the regular season, defeating the No. 3 doubles teams from La Roche University, Mount Aloysius College, Penn State Behrend, and Pitt-Bradford. The twosome also recorded non-conference wins against Lycoming College, Saint Vincent College, and Waynesburg University, as well as a postseason tournament win over Penn State Behrend.
This marks Swain’s second appearance on an All-AMCC team after she took first-team honors at No. 3 doubles last season.
Penn State Altoona women’s tennis went 4-8 overall this season, including a 3-2 record in the AMCC. The Lions earned a berth into the AMCC Tournament last weekend as the third seed, suffering a semifinal round loss to second seed Penn State Behrend last Saturday evening.
