Penn-Trafford graduate and Pitt-Greensburg men’s tennis player Turner Price competes during the 2019 season.

Pitt-Greensburg freshman Turner Price was voted the AMCC tennis player and newcomer of the year.

Price, a Penn-Trafford graduate, played every match this season at No. 1 singles and doubles. He finished 11-3 (6-0 vs. AMCC opponents) at singles and earned straight-set victories in all but two matches in the spring season.

He and junior teammate Vaughn Hunkele were selected to the All-AMCC second team at No. 1 doubles.

“With all of the hard work Turner has put in this year, I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this award. The year he had will have a major impact on our program for years to come,” UPG coach Doug Smeltzer said. “Turner and Vaughn have been the lifeblood of the team this year. They both have a way of elevating the players around them, and it’s great to see their work get rewarded.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
