"No one, and I mean no one, outworks Olivia. Her strength is taking the ball to the hole as she is very explosive going to the basket. She is an offensive threat at all times and game in game out is one of our leading scorers. She is a great rebounder for her size and leads the team in offensive rebounds. Her intensity on both ends of the floor is amazing and she does not take plays off. She Is definitely a player that can play at the next level and will help that team win games."
Coach of General Amherst High School Senior Girls Basketball Team
"Olivia is the kind of player that a coach dreams of having. She possesses the grit and determination that can’t be taught. She is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure her team is successful. She will mold her game play to attack the weaknesses of her opponent.
Olivia was the spark of our team with the International Children’s Games. She is someone who will always dive on the floor for the loose ball and has the ability to recognize the weak side drive and take a textbook charge. Another notable skill that Olivia has is her ability to anticipate and get steals off of the ball. She was the glue of our press defense and could always be relied on to cause chaos in the middle of the floor.
Her basketball IQ allows her to be in the right place at the right time. This is apparent when she finds her way to the rim both offensively and defensively when it seems like there isn't any room.
Olivia isn't concerned with being one of the more recognized players who get publicized for their stats, but instead will be the all-around hybrid player that will make any team successful."
Coach, International Children's Games, 2013

My most recent accomplishments have been winning the Ryleigh Award at my Juel (Junior Elite)/Windsor Valiants Banquet. Ryleigh is a former Windsor Valiants basketball player. She suddenly passed away in 2006. Every year, the players select one of their own teammates as the recipient of this award. This is a player, who the team feels embodies the qualities that Ryleigh possessed throughout her life, as a person and Valiants basketball player. The following qualities are considered when selecting the recipient of the Ryleigh Vigneux Award - never complained, is charismatic, genuine, personable and spirited, modest, courageous, respectful, determined, tenacious, dedicated and loyal, ready for the challenge and is a positive leader. At my High School Athletics Banquet, I won the "Most Improved" award for Girls Basketball.
