ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Penn State Altoona women's tennis sophomores Brayley Lewis (Roaring Spring, PA/Bishop Guilfoyle) and Annie Ruggles (Hollidaysburg, PA/Hollidaysburg) were voted to the second team of the All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Team in No. 2 doubles, when the league released its postseason awards on Tuesday afternoon.

Lewis and Ruggles were the Lady Lions' No. 2 doubles team in all 14 matches this season. The duo posted a 9-5 overall record together, including a 7-1 mark against AMCC opponents. Lewis and Ruggles had the second-most overall wins (9) of any No. 2 doubles team in the AMCC this fall, and their seven conference wins in No. 2 doubles also ranked second in the league.

In the 2017 regular season, Lewis and Ruggles combined to defeat conference opponents from D'Youville College, Medaille College, Penn State Behrend, Pitt-Bradford, Pitt-Greensburg, La Roche College, and Mount Aloysius College, losing only to AMCC champion Franciscan University. The tandem also picked up a win against non-conference foe Frostburg State University, as well as a victory against Penn State Behrend in the conference semifinals.

Penn State Altoona women's tennis finished the season as the AMCC Runners-Up, losing to Franciscan in the conference championship match. The Lady Lions compiled an 8-6 overall record, including a 6-2 record in the AMCC that was the second-best in the regular season standings.
