Among her academic achievements, Willmore is a member of the National Honor Society, won the 2008 Outstanding Senior Award; was the Rock Springs Student Council Treasurer, was a member of Athletes for Literacy, and belonged to her school’s Calculus Club.
“As all our student-athletes, Amanda has some great goals in mind and will do everything to achieve them,” Felderman said. “We are looking forward to coaching this fine young lady.”
