Only a sophomore, Olivia Rubin has already emerged as a team leader and is among the best lacrosse players in the metro area. She had another solid season for Bryn Mawr, earning All A-Conference honors in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland. Rubin created matchup problems all season, and she had a five-goal performance against Maryvale Prep April 15. Rubin, who excels academically, has committed to Duke and was selected for the 2016 Under Armour All-America Underclass Lacrosse Tournament.

PressBox: Having played varsity as a freshman and sophomore, what tips would you have for younger players now that you’re an upperclassman?
Olivia Rubin: Going into my freshman year, the idea of playing with older girls for the first time was intimidating. But playing with more experienced girls really helped me develop as a player and a teammate. This year, one of our seniors, AP Smith, had a big impact on me. She has an incredible work ethic and such a positive attitude. She made me want to be a better teammate. In terms of tips, when I am out there, I am always thinking about hustling and trying to impact the game all over the field. Go hard for every ground ball, sprint back on defense and move the ball fast. If you hustle and play hard, good things will happen.
