Olivia Supron fits right in with the Bryn Mawr field hockey team.
The 5-foot-5 freshman from Jamestown and a North Kingstown High graduate has played in all 13 games with 12 starts for the Owls who are 12-1 overall and 6-1 in the Centennial Conference.
Supron has 11 points on four goals and three assists. She jump-started her college career by picking up an assist in a season-opening 4-0 victory over Cedar Crest on Aug. 30, scored her first college goal in a 7-0 triumph over Hood on Sept. 2, she had two goals in that game, and had a score in a 8-0 victory over Drew on Sept. 7.
“Olivia’s been a dynamic addition to our forward line,” coach Victory Brady said. “We were expecting her to earn the opportunity to start and contribute on the field as a first-year and she consistently impacts the game when she’s out there.”
The coach feels that scoring is only part of her game.
“Olivia has the ability to front-cut defenders as she receives which opens up space and opportunities for her teammates,” Brady said. “She is a tough competitor and expects a lot from herself. And, her energy and spirit bring a joy to the team, both on and off the field. She is barely scratching the surface of her field hockey potential.”
