Olivia Ottley, Springville (Sr.)

Springville dives back into action this week with two games after an extend break, and Olivia Ottley looks to pick up where she left off.

In Springvillle’s recent wins over both Bonneville and Spanish Fork before the break, Ottley scored five goals in each giving her 20 goals on the season in just four games.

“Olivia is a true leader. She took on the leadership role for the Springville High team at its first inception last year. She was the only player when the team was formed that played lacrosse, and so it was up to her to teach the team and be their anchor. She has taught this team from the ground up. She is our team captain and has shown time and again what an amazing leader she is,” said Springville coach Adrienne Ottley.

“Olivia is a versatile and dependable player. Her biggest strength is on attack, but she can be put in at middie and defense when the team needs her there and provide stellar performances there as well. She has high game IQ and is able to visualize the field and find scoring opportunities for her team. She is also a great on-field communicator and helps her teammates work together to do their best. She loves this game with all her heart and has shared that love with so many to grow this game.”
