NORTH BOSTON, N.Y. — On Wednesday, Dec. 7, the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) announced its 2022 All-Sportsmanship team for fall sports, and it included a representative from each of Penn State Altoona’s five fall teams.

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 a vote of their teammates.

Such sportsmanship shall be evident toward teammates, coaches, opponents, officials and fans.

AMCC All-Sportsmanship team announcements will continue next semester when nominees for winter and spring sports are chosen.
