The Grayslake North senior scored the first hat trick in program history Thursday, as the Knights blanked host Hampshire 6-0 in Fox Valley Conference action. Olson also had an assist.

Sydney Paez, Kendall Detweiler and Kendall Buchman also had goals for Grayslake North (10-8, 4-2), while Jocelyn Rodriguez added 3 assists. Teagan Johnson and Morgan Lyon assisted on goals as well, while keeper Megan Davis (1 save) earned the shutout.

"A quality team effort and approach allowed our defenders to get comfortable as well as allowing our attackers to get forward and put Hampshire under pressure from the start," said coach Adam DeCaluwe, whose Knights led 2-0 at halftime. "Second half, we looked to play with more purpose in our possession, and it showed with several quality scoring chances."

Olson opening the scoring in the opening minute of the match, running onto a pass from Johnson and, after a touch, placing the ball into the far corner of the net.

Olson's second goal came in the second half after she created some space for herself before scoring. Rodriguez picked up the assist. After setting up Detweiler's goal, Olson completed her hat trick when she again finished a pass from Rodriguez.
