Hi! I’m Amanda Auricchio. I have been running my whole life. During the inaugural year of Notre Dame Academy, I was a member of the very first state champion team of Notre Dame Academy. In 1990, our girl’s cross country team won the WISAA State Championship. I was a Varsity runner for both cross country and track all four years of high school, going to state for both cross country and track every year. In college, I had an awesome opportunity to run with the University of Notre Dame Women’s cross country, indoor track and outdoor track teams. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.S. in Computer Science.
To this day, although I am not as fast as I use to be, I am an active runner still grinding away. I have run 10 marathons, including 2 Bostons. My favorite day of the year is always the Bellin Run. I have been running the Bellin as often as possible since I was 12 years old, and now the race is a family tradition where we all run. While not running, I work at Schreiber Foods. I have been there for 15 years in IT where I am a software developer focused on analytical reporting.
Believe it or not, I met my husband, Gaetano, at Notre Dame Academy. I would pester him in English and beg him for answers in Latin. He has always challenged me to be my best. We have three sons: Federrico, who is a freshman at NDA and joined the cross country team this fall. Giuliano and Pietro are our identical twins. They are 7th graders at Notre Dame of De Pere and a bit less enthusiastic about our running adventures.
I am a runner at heart. I love the challenges and serenity it brings to my life. This is my first year coaching, and I am pumped to be a part of this dynamic team. I can’t wait to get to know all of the kids and share the joy of running. Let’s go Tritons!
