Last week’s accomplishments: Olson had 76 assists, 30 points and 20 digs, including 31 assists, nine points and eight digs in the Class 3A Washington Super-Sectional to help La Salle-Peru to its first state tournament berth in 23 years.

Olson on her performance: I think overall I played pretty well. I have to keep talking to help everyone around me.

Coach Mark Haberkorn says: Katie did a great job of moving the ball around, which we need to do in order to win. She not only played great offense, she also played great defense last week and that’s sometimes overlooked. Her serving has been phenomenal as well. She had a great all around week for us.
