Amanda Dowdy - About Me


MEET AMANDA

CURRENT TEAMMATE
Corinne Quiggle

CURRENT COACH
Megan Burgdorf


Amanda Dowdy was born in the small town of Leander, Texas. The daughter of Sam and Rhonda, she grew up the youngest of four siblings (brothers Sam and Dan, sister Michelle).

Amanda graduated from Lexington High School before attending Texas Tech University. During her collegiate years as a Red Raider, Amanda was a two-time All Big-12 selection and solidified her name in Tech’s record books as the career kills leader and single match kills record holder.

After graduating from Tech in 2012, Amanda went on to compete internationally in Germany and Puerto Rico before stepping away from indoor volleyball in 2013. In 2014, she brought her skills to the beach and immediately made an impact. Amanda’s AVP debut saw her garner four top-five finishes and the 2014 AVP Newcomer of the Year Award. Other highlights include a third place finish at the 2017 AVP Austin Open and a third place finish at the 2018 AVP Seattle Open. In 2018, Amanda also won her first FIVB gold medal in Australia and earned a bronze medal in China.

In the offseason, when she's not busy practicing and staying in shape, Amanda enjoys spending time coaching juniors and helping grow the game of beach volleyball. A few of her favorite offseason activities include hiking, standup paddling, camping and biking. Amanda loves traveling and the adventure of exploring new places. One of her favorite activities while traveling is to find a local coffee shop where she can spend time journaling, reading, or drawing. Amanda also loves the hometown feel of Austin's live music scene. Some of her favorite artists include Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, and Coldplay.
