Olsen cashed 20 points Tuesday as Spring-Ford debuted with a 61-13 PAC Liberty rout of Norristown, followed that up with another 20-point effort – including 15 in the first half – to key a 49-32 victory over Methacton in was a rematch of last year’s PAC championship game, and closed out the week by pouring in 21 points in a 58-27 demolition of Pope John Paul II Saturday.

Olsen, a first team PAC Liberty selection who was named the area’s top player by the Mercury in 2018-19, averaged 15.2 ppg last season to help the Rams go unbeaten in league play en route to the PAC title, advance to the District 1-6A semifinals and reach the second round of the state tournament.
