NORTH BOSTON, N.Y. — The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference announced its Fall All-Sportsmanship Team on Thursday, Dec. 7, including a student-athlete from each of Penn State Altoona’s five fall sports programs.

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. The player also must serve as a positive representative of school spirit when a spectator at other teams' sporting events.
