This marks the first IWLCA DII Player of the Week award for Olin in her career, and the first for the award as it kicks off for the first time ever this week. Olin, who earned her nod for her defensive performance, shares her Division II Player of the Week nod with Meghan O'Brien, who grabs her honors for her efforts on offense last week.
Olin helped the Tars go undefeated on the week, including helping Rollins upset then 10th-ranked Queens in a big 15-4 victory, followed by a 14-8 win over Seton Hill. On the week, Olin faced 34 total shots, allowing just 12 goals, for a goals-against-average of just 6.00. The senior posted up a save percentage of .538 with 14 key saves, as Rollins advanced to win their fourth straight.
Against the nationally-ranked Royals, Olin faced 15 shots and 10 shots on goal, making six key saves and causing one turnover while allowing just four shots to find the back of the net. Wrapping up the week against Seton Hill, Olin earned three ground balls while facing 19 shots and 16 shots on goal from the Griffins. The Skaneateles, N.Y. native earned eight saves while allowing just eight goals on the day.
