Lacrosse’s Olivia Masters Named Athlete of the Week

Written by Madeline Gamblin – On the Plank Staff Reporter

Our Athlete of the week this week is Olivia Masters. Olivia is a senior at Allatoona high school and has been playing lacrosse since she was 6. “Olivia is a solid teammate on and off the field. Her speed and quickness are easily matched with her skill level and field awareness,” said Lacrosse Head Coach Lauren Jackson. “I play three out of four seasons; I’m constantly trying to improve myself and listening to my coaches about things I need to work on.” Her favorite memory while playing lacrosse at Allatoona “was making it to the second round of playoffs.” Olivia plans on playing lacrosse at the collegiate level, and she also wants “to major in either biology or chemistry and go on a pre-med track.” Her advice to younger players is to “have fun. Once you find something you’re passionate about, don’t let someone else, whether it’s a coach or another player or even a parent, ruin it.”
