GIBSONIA, PA – Junior cross-country runner Stacey Zinck (Hornell, NY/Hornell) has been named to the 2004 All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) First Team. 


Zinck, a human services major, finished seventh out of 53 runners at the AMCC Championships in Frostburg, Maryland on October 30th.  She finished the 6K race in a time of 27:44, five seconds behind fifth place finisher Willa Paterson of Penn State Behrend.  The top ten finishers in the conference meet were selected to the all-conference team.   


Zinck was a standout performer all season for the Hawks.  She recorded a team-best 40th place finish out of 115 runners at the Harry F. Anderson Invitational at Roberts Wesleyan College, and added a pair of second place finishes at Hilbert College’s two home meets.


This marks the second consecutive season that a Hilbert College woman has been named first team all-conference.  Last season, Katy Dorsheimer (Lakeview, NY/Frontier) was selected to the first-team All-AMCC after posting a second place finish at the AMCC Championships.
