PITTSBURGH, PA – The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) released the All-Sportsmanship Team for the 2009 fall sports teams. Six student-athletes from Hilbert College are being recognized for their abilities on and off the field of play. AMCC Commissioner Donna Ledwin initiated this program during the 2007-08 academic year to complement the “Be Loud, Be Proud, BE POSITIVE” sportsmanship program originated by the AMCC. Since its inception, the NCAA has begun to use the same tag-line in its publicity materials and it is now accepted as the DivIIICA (Division III Commissioners Association) Fan Sportsmanship Program.
