“Olivia is a self-developed leader on our team. She is dedicated, on-time, engaged and creates results.

She set her mind to be successful,” said Tyrell Neal, head coach of the Bear River High girls’ basketball team.
“Not only does she play hard-nosed defense, but she is also a huge offensive threat to every team. As coaches, we appreciate her great ‘can-do’ attitude. It does not matter what is asked of her - she responds with a great attitude and makes it happen,” he added.
