Amici, a management major with a 3.80 GPA, led the Blugolds in kills and blocks to help the Blugolds to their seventh straight NCAA Championship appearance and second straight WIAC title.

Amici tallied 348 kills and a hitting percentage of .335 this season. Named the WIAC Player of the Year, Amici finished with 152 totals blocks, a mark that ranks fourth in school archives for most blocks in a season. She finished her career with 418 total blocks, which ranks third all-time in school history.

Because of her first team selection to the Capital One Academic All-District team, Amici advances to the Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be named later this month.
