Amy Olsen, sophomore member of the Iona College women's water polo team, will chronicle this season on ICGaels.com as the Gaels look to repeat as MAAC Champions and return to the NCAA Championships. A season ago, Olsen was named MAAC Rookie of the Year and a Second Team All-MAAC Selection after scoring 95 points on 75 goals and 20 assists. Outside the pool, Olsen is a double major in English and Mass Communication with a concentration in Television and Video and writer for the school newspaper, The Ionian.
Above all, this weekend was all about Iona Water Polo. Representing a team does not necessarily mean you have to be on it. Representation can come through support, or even something as simple as hoping a team does well. During the banquet I thought about how many people have, do, and will represent Iona. Even though there are men and women who have graduated several years ago, they still represent Iona and give us support. On the other hand, there are even people who have not played on the water polo team for Iona, but care about both teams. Br. Durning for instance, represents Iona by always helping us in and out of the classroom and for sincerely wishing the best for our teams.
