Liberty redshirt junior outside hitter Amelia Johnson has been named to the 2019 CoSIDA Academic All-District Volleyball Team®, as announced today by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

As a result of her inclusion on the academic all-district team, Johnson will now appear on the ballot for the 2019 CoSIDA Academic All-America Volleyball Team®. The first-, second- and third-team Academic All-America honorees will be announced on Dec. 9.

A native of Roseau, Minn., Johnson is the seventh player in program history to earn CoSIDA Academic All-District® honors and first since Becca Haraf in 2013. Haraf earned CoSIDA Academic All-America® second-team honors in 2013.

Johnson held a 4.0 as an interdisciplinary studies major, as she completed her undergraduate studies this spring. She is currently pursuing a master's degree in public health at Liberty. She transferred to Liberty from North Dakota prior to the 2018-19 academic year.

Complete Academic All-District Teams

This season has been a breakout year for Johnson, as she leads the ASUN and ranks 33rd nationally with 396 kills (4.08 kills per set). She has posted 22 double-digit kill matches, the most by a Lady Flame since the 2014 season. Additionally, she has scored 29 kills twice this season, which ties the program's single-match record under the current 25-point rally-scoring system.

Johnson was named ASUN Player of the Week on Sept. 30. The redshirt junior has posted eight double-doubles this season, tying for the team high. Her 396 kills this season are already tied for the fifth most in a single season in the program's 25-point rally-scoring era (since 2008).

She is the only ASUN player to be named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Volleyball Team® today.
