It’s been a back-and-forth, up-and-down kind of season for the Palmyra girls’ basketball team this year.
But one consistent bright spot for the Cougars has been the play of senior Olivia Richardson. When her team has needed her most, Richardson has provided a steadying influence for Palmyra.
A 5-10 forward and inside presence, Richardson goes about her business in workmanlike fashion. Richardson, along with fellow senior Amelia Baldo, leads the Cougars in scoring with an average right around 11 points an outing.
Richardson is also a focused rebounder and an outstanding free throw shooter. In addition, she anchors Palmyra’s active and stingy defense from her position in the post.
But perhaps most importantly, Richardson is a shining example, a player for the younger Cougars to look up to.
Recently, Richardson committed to further her athetlic and academic pursuits at Millersville University.
