“This is a great day for us,” said Owens Women’s Basketball Head Coach Mike Llanas. “We’ve got one hell of a class.”  They have recruits headed to northwest Ohio next fall from Chicago to Canton(McKinley), from Westerville to Evergreen to Fostoria, and many points in between.

“We have a huge diamond in the rough in Olivia” said Coach Llanas.

“We were really impressed when we invited her to open gym, and she drove herself there” said Llanas. “Believe it or not, we don’t see that a lot. Mom and Dad are usually tagging along.” At open gym Olivia faced off against some much taller players, who are actually headed off to some D1 schools like Cincinnati and Michigan.

“We have a huge diamond in the rough in Olivia” said Coach Llanas.

After seeing Olivia and the Lady Tigers play during the regular season against Van Buren(The Tigers crushed them), Owens Assistant Coach Stephen Perry said to her, “You won’t see any players from Van Buren to go up against(in college) but you will see lots of inner-city kids from Detroit, Flint, Columbus”(etc). “Can you play against them?” he asked. Olivia replied, ”Yeah, that sounds like Fun!”

Coach Perry said “We have had seven straight 25-Win seasons. We want more. The Sky’s the Limit!” Coach Llanas added, “There are a lot of negative things going on at Owens right now, we want the women’s basketball program to be the Shining Star  of the school”

Olivia will not be one of the biggest kids on the floor at Owens and the coaches said they hope to use her more in the middle, facing the basket , as well as  playing the “three spot” out on the perimeter. We see  us using her as a good “Every day Guard, and getting used to playing with a shot-clock”.

Olivia stood to address those gathered. “I’ve known since I was a little kid, that I wanted to play college basketball. I thank these two (coaches) for giving me the opportunity” (She also thanked her parents and family.)

  1. Congratulations to Olivia, but the article is incorrect. She is not the only student this year to sign a letter of intent.

  2. This is so awesome. I know how hard you have worked for years, playing club ball, shooting in your driveway, coming in before and after practices….nice to see it all pay off. Good luck and get me a schedule so I can come watch…no kidding.

  3. Awesome achievement by Olivia.One of my all time favorite tball players.She showed up to our first practice and shows me her pink glove and matching shoes,earrings and fingernail polish.I remember telling her if there is a beauty contest,she’s the winner!Way cool kid.
    All the best from me and my family,Gary Essinger
