Head Coach Erica Jasper on Emily Olivier:

“Emily has a huge game and an even bigger personality!  Emily put a tremendous amount of work in this fall in the weight room and in the training room to become faster and stronger, and we believe it will pay big dividends this spring.  Already a fan favorite, Emily is just starting to realize the type of player she can be!”
