Catching up with Olivia King
Brainerd graduate Olivia King is in her sophomore season with the University of Minnesota women’s hockey team. We get an update on her experiences at the Division I level, starting with the unusual offseason with COVID 19.
King tells us the feelings when the team in its entirety could finally return to the ice to prepare for this season.
After last season, it was thought that King would battle another sophomore, Makayla Pahl for the starting goaltender spot, but a senior graduate transfer changed that. King tells us how the sophomore campaign has gone so far.
With COVID-19 changing things constantly, it puts even more emphasis on players being ready to take the ice at a moment’s notice. Even if that means out of position.
King also talks about the excitement with the strong start and looking forward to the rest of the Gophers season in our full interview. We thank Olivia for taking time with us to update her experiences.
