Newell-Fonda’s Larsen is 2018 Times Player of the Year

Newell-Fonda’s Olivia Larsen was the premier player in the area.

The first team all-state pick averaged 19.7 points, 7.0 rebounds,

4.9 assists and 5.2 steals a game.


At the state tournament last week, Olivia Larsen showed why she is one of the best players in Iowa in Class 1A.

The guard put her Newell-Fonda teammates on her back in the first two games and helped them reach the state championship game.

She raised her level of play even more so than the regular season, making the all-tournament team in the process.

That performance cemented her status as the best player in the area as Larsen is named the 2018 Times Player of the Year.
