Pitt-Bradford women's basketball players Alicia Kimmel and Geena Sneeringer were named to the AMCC all-conference team Tuesday, and head coach Patrick Daniel earned co-Coach of the Year honors.

Kimmel was a first-team selection while Sneeringer was a third-team pick. Both players were honored for the first time in their careers.

Kimmel, a sophomore forward, ranked fourth among all players in scoring with 17 points a game and led the league in free-throw shooting. She led the Panthers with eight games of 20 or more points, averaged seven rebounds a game and posted two double-doubles. Kimmel hit on 46 percent of her attempts from the floor, including a team-leading 35 percent from long-range and ranks 17th nationally with an 87 percent free throw shooting mark.

In conference play, the Pine Grove, Pa., native averaged 18 points and six rebounds.

Sneeringer, a junior forward, ranked in the top 12 in the AMCC in both scoring and rebounding with 12 points and seven boards a game. She totaled a team-leading five double-doubles, including a triple-double and was fourth in the league with 68 total steals. Sneeringer averaged more than four offensive rebounds a contest, the fourth-best mark among all conference players.

The West Hickory, Pa., native set a school record with 11 steals against Penn State Altoona, and her 16 rebounds versus Nazareth rank as the fifth-best single-game effort in school history.

Daniel shared co-Coach of the Year honors with La Roche's Kam Gissendanner. The first-year coach led the Panthers to a 15-10 overall record and 13-5 mark in AMCC play. The 15 wins are tied for the third-most all-time in school history, and the 13 conference victories are the most by a Panther team.

Pitt-Bradford finished tied for third in the conference and advanced to the postseason tournament for the fourth straight season.
