Coaches Comments:

Amanda is an extremely committed athlete who continuously strives for perfection.  Her ability to read the court to include blockers, hitters and opponent positions has allowed her to continuously be in position to dig.  She is an emotional leader who remains focused under pressure or when scoring situations are not in our favor.  Her speed along with her acute awareness during a match has helped us to win matches and/or keep matches very close.  She is an absolute pleasure to coach and does everything asked without hesitation.  She asks the proper questions to gain a better understanding of what is needing to be done and to ensure she is doing it correctly.  Amanda will make a great addition to any team at the libero or DS position and is regarded in the area as one of the best at her position.
