“Olyvia had plans to win state in four individual events, but she ended up hitting a hurdle in the 300 prelims and didn’t make it to finals, despite a huge lead. She didn’t let that bring her down though. She stayed focused and went on to dominate in the other three events. She’s a one-of-a-kind athlete and I’m excited to see what she does in the future.”
