Olson was named the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Softball Pitcher of the Week. The award was announced and chosen by the conference office.

She pitched six total innings in those three games, racking up a 2-0 record with one save and a 0.00 earned run average. She struck out four batters and yielded just three hits in those six innings.

She had a 0.83 WHIP during the G-MAC Tournament. Olson enters the NCAA Midwest Regional Tournament with a 4-4 record and 32 strikeouts in 58.2 innings pitched. Her strikeout-per-7-innings ratio of 4.67 in the conference tournament was outstanding.
