Seton Hill University linebacker Tyler Zimmer is the first Griffins football player to receive first-team Daktronics NCAA Division II All-America honors.

The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Zimmer, a sophomore transfer from Duquesne who graduated from Penn-Trafford, led Seton Hill this season with school records of 121 tackles, 29 tackles for loss and 12 sacks.

It is the third award this season to Zimmer, who earlier was named to the Daktronics Super Region I and West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference first team.

Elsewhere, eight members of the Seton Hill softball team were named National Fast-pitch Coaches Association All-America Scholar Athletes.

They are Christine Henderson, Lisa Kaczynski, Emily Lemin, Anna Libby, Liz Piekut, Beth Anne Swartzwelder, Dani Treaster and Stefanie Wiegand.

Five members of the Seton Hill men's lacrosse team were named to the Inside Lacrosse Magazine Preseason Eastern College Athletic Conference Team.

They are attackmen Matt Delmonico and Dylan Lefebvre, midfielder James Delaney, face off specialist Jimmy Cogley and defender Anthony Rusch.

Thank you

The Seton Hill women's lacrosse team recently volunteered time to provide meals through a program to benefit those in need.

The team worked with Feeding the Spirit, a Greensburg-based soup kitchen, on two Thursdays in November serving food and interacting with members of the community.

The team also paired with Family Care for Children and Youth in December to provide Christmas gifts for foster families and children.

Good sports

The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Sportsmanship Team for fall sports includes one member of every sport from each member school.

The following were named from Pitt-Greensburg: Allyson Delbaugh, women's volleyball; Jared DelBianco, men's golf; Alisa Carey, women's cross country; Trevor Stoll, men's cross country; Allaina King, women's soccer; Sam Kuhn, men's soccer; and Maria Iovino, women's tennis.

Penn State-Altoona women's volleyball player Robin Tabaka, a Hempfield graduate, was named, too.
