Congratulations to Starz ’21 midfielder, Grant Olvey, on his recent commitment to NCAA D3 UMass Boston. The Eastside Catholic varsity captain played on 2 state championship squads. He was named to the MadLax East Coast Showcase all-star team twice and also was an STX D1 Rising Sophomore standout.
“Seattle Starz has affected me both on and off the field. Starz allowed me to compete at a high level and push myself to extremes,” said Olvey. “I have played for Starz since 7th grade. My progress on the field since then has had a drastic improvement thanks to the coaches and players pushing me and competing with me. Starz also allowed me to meet some of my best friends which made my experience even better. Thanks to Starz, I am the player and person I am today.”
“Congratulations to Grant on his commitment to UMass Boston! Grant is a tenacious and hard-working player who brings his work ethic and competitive spirit to everything he does,” remarked Pruitt. “Grant’s signature strength is his scrappiness on groundballs – he always lays his body on the line for his teammates and doesn’t quit until the final whistle. He complements this on-field toughness with coachability, enthusiasm, and friendliness, making him a pleasure to coach. I wish Grant nothing but the best as he continues his lacrosse journey in Boston. GO BEACONS!”
