LEXINGTON, Ky. (Blugolds.com) – UW-Eau Claire volleyball player Liz Amici (Sr.-Whitewater, Wis.) has been named a 2011 American Volleyball Coaches Association Second-Team All-American, the organization announced today.
During her senior campaign, Amici led the Blugolds in kills (348) and blocks (152), en route to the school's seventh straight NCAA Division III Tournament appearance and their second straight WIAC championship. Amici was also named WIAC Player of the Year.
Amici's 152 blocks this season is 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.
