Olivia Ohlson, Staff Writer

Hi! My name is Olivia Ohlson and I am a sports staff writer. It is my third year on staff and in the sports section. I love writing for The Evanstonian because I love sharing information about ETHS sports teams and athletes to help our community feel more motivated to support our student-athletes. Especially within our smaller sports programs! Outside of The Evanstonian I am a member of the Varsity Girls Golf Team, The Community Service Club, The Ambassador leadership team and Team ASAP. Outside of school I enjoy serving on the Girls Play Sports youth advisory board and City of Evanston Youth Advisory Council, coaching younger student-athletes, baking, crocheting and hanging out with friends.
