From University of Pittsburgh athletic department report 

Amanda West of the Pitt women’s soccer team was named to the 2019 United Soccer Coaches’ All-Atlantic Region Third-Team, the organization announced Monday afternoon. West is the second Panther ever to receive all-region honors, joining Liz Carroll (third-team northeast region in 2009).

West broke the school’s single-season points record this year with 29 and also tied for most goals (10) and assists (nine). One of the top scorers in the conference this year, she ranks second in points per game (1.61), tied for third in assists per game (.500) and fourth in goals per game (.566). She’s also tied for seventh in game-winning goals (four).

With points in each of her first six games, West began the season on a tear. She recorded the best debut in program history with a hat-trick and assist, including the game-winner in the 84th minute, as Pitt beat Loyola Marymount 5-4 on Aug. 23 for the most points in a game by a Pitt player since 2001 and most in Ambrose Urbanic Field history by a Panther.

She led the league in assists (six) and tied for second in points (12) in conference games only. She produced the golden goal against Boston College on Sept. 10 to snap the team’s three-year ACC winless streak. She also assisted on all three goals at Miami (Sept. 29) and registered her second multi-goal game at Wake Forest (Oct. 24).
