ERIE, Pa. – With seven conference championships accumulated through the 2016-17 winter season, Penn State Behrend continues to hold a commanding lead in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Presidents Cup Standings, announced on Friday.

La Roche moved into second place with a 62.0 ranking percentage after claiming the women's basketball championship along with runner-up finishes in men's golf and men's basketball. Pitt-Bradford sits a close third with a 65.2 ranking percentage.
