GIBSONIA, PA – Hilbert College senior cross country standout Katy Dorsheimer (Lakeview, NY/Frontier) is the recipient of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference 2004-05 Faculty Athletics Representatives Award.  Dorsheimer joins University of Pitt-Greensburg senior basketball player Kevin Conlon in heading a list of nine female and nine male student-athletes on the AMCC All-Academic team.


Dorsheimer will graduate from Hilbert this spring with a 3.92 GPA in psychology and plans to attend the University at Albany for graduate school.  She has been named to the “Who’s Who in America Colleges and Universities” and has been on the Dean’s List every semester at Hilbert.  Most recently she has been recognized as a member of the National Collegiate Athlete Honor Society, Chi Sigma Alpha.


Dorsheimer has 10 career wins to her credit and owns course records at Cazenovia College as well as on her home course at Hilbert.  A two-time Hilbert College Student-Athlete of the Month, Dorsheimer is also a two-time AMCC Runner of the Week. 


Before the Hawks moved into the highly competitive AMCC, Dorsheimer earned back-to-back first place finishes at the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Championships.  In 2003 she came in second at the AMCC Championships and placed 11th this past fall.  She is a three-time team MVP and ends her Hilbert College career with a year of eligibility remaining if she chooses to use it next fall.
