Pitt forward Amanda West recently wrapped up her junior season with the Panthers and managed to post a double-digit goal total for the third consecutive season. And for her efforts, West earned All-ACC honors for the third time in her Pitt career on Thursday.
West was placed on the All-ACC third team and was Pitt’s only representative on any of the 2021 All-ACC teams. Last season, West was placed on the All-ACC second team after scoring 13 goals and accruing seven assists in 16 games. And as a freshman in 2019, West made the All-ACC third team after netting 10 goals and logging nine assists in 18 games.
Over a span of 11 games, West scored 10 goals and recorded three assists for a total of 23 points. Five of West’s goals were game-winners, and that total ranked second in the ACC. West was also vital to Pitt’s success, as the team went 8-1 in games in which West scored at least one goal and 0-2 in games West played in but did not score. And during the seven games she missed due to injury this season, the Panthers went 3-4.
West displayed remarkable consistency in 2021, as there were only two games out of 11 played in which she failed to score. She also opened the season with a five-game scoring streak and closed the season with at least one goal scored in each of her final four games played. West’s scoring streak early in the season was the second-longest in program history. The longest was West’s own seven-game scoring streak to start the 2020 slate.
