FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – After two first team all-conference selections this week, senior Amanda Frost can now add All-American next to her name as College Sports Madness named her to its Mid-Major All-American Fourth Team on Thursday.
"I'm speechless; I think it's crazy," Frost said. "I've always dreamed of being an All-American and with the things I accomplished this year, I feel like all my hard work paid off. To think that I made a name for myself, I have butterflies in my stomach right now."
The All-American honor is just the latest in the series of postseason accolades for Frost after the Big Sky Conference coaches voted her to the conference's first team on Monday and Madness followed that up by selecting her for its first team on Wednesday. The senior from Riverside, Calif. continues to rack up accolades after finishing the season as the Big Sky Conference's scoring champion at 22.5 points per game, the third-best scoring average in league history. Frost concluded her final season in the NAU blue and gold with 652 points, a new school season record and the fifth-highest total in conference history. She displayed the ability to finish at the rim, at the free throw line, where she shot 86.7 percent, and behind the arc, where she shot 37.6 percent, while also proving to be a playmaker averaging 3.1 assists per game and thief on defense averaging 2.5 steals per game.
Frost was one of two Big Sky players named to College Sports Madness' Mid-Major All-American with North Dakota's Madi Buck, the conference Player of the Year, receiving second team honors.
