Head Coach Erica Jasper on Emily Olivier
“When Emily Olivier puts her mind to something—expect it to happen! After a rough spring last year, Emily worked very hard all summer and fall to go from someone who was out of our line-up to someone we will look to lead us at the top of our line-up. I couldn’t be more proud of Emily. She brings a lot of fun and personality to our team—and we’ll continue to look to her for that!”
