Olivia Richardson has been a part of the Palmyra girls’ varsity basketball program for three years now. She’s seen some things, been through some wars.
Richardson has also lived through some transition and has experienced change. And in some ways, she has helped smooth that transition and carry on the Cougars’ family tradition.
Richardson is a 6-0 forward for Palmyra. She continues to enjoy an excellent junior campaign, one in which the Cougars have qualified for the District Three playoffs for the 16th straight year.
Though she’s come on as of late, Richardson has led the Cougars in scoring throughout, posting an average of more than 11 points per outing. On the year, Richardson is shooting at a 39 percent clip and is making nearly 84 percent of her free throws.
Richardson and Palmyra recently concluded the regular season with a sturdy 13-9 record. As the postseason approaches, the Cougars will be seeking a berth in the PIAA Class AAAAA tournament.
