ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

Sarah Olin, Jr., River Ridge: Every historic story needs a main character. For the Royal Knights, that's Olin. For whom else could it be during the Royal Knight's magical season, in which they appeared in the always-successful program's first region final berth? If not for Olin, River Ridge would've have gone home earlier. With 28 goals, the most important came in the region semifinals, knocking home the game winner in the second overtime against Mitchell. This after having a terrible time against the Mustangs during the regular season. However, Olin led her team to the two more important wins against the Mustangs – in the district championship and region semifinal. A bruising player with a big leg, Olin is already garnering interest from colleges, but still has unfinished business as this team's protagonist. That's another historic return to the state tournament, where Olin and company will look to write more history.
