GIBSONIA, PA – Hilbert College senior women’s basketball player Amanda McHale (Bradford, PA/Archbishop Walsh) has been named a first team All-AMCC (Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference) selection for the 2007-08 season.

The only player in the program’s history to record more than 1,000 points (1,075) and 1,000 rebounds (1,072), McHale paced the AMCC in rebounds (10.2 rpg) and blocked shots (86). Her 3.4 blocks per game currently ranks 7th nationally and her 11 blocks against Fredonia State on December 12th ranks as the third best performance in the country this season.

One of only two players in the AMCC to average a double-double during conference play, McHale was a two-time AMCC Player of the Week this season. The third all-time leading scorer in Hawks history, the 5’11 forward finishes her career as the program’s all-time leader in rebounds and field goals made (430).

An honorable mention selection in 2005-06, McHale garnished second team honors after her junior year.
