Olive is a three-time National Fastpitch Coaches Association Scholar-Athlete and was a four-time All-WAC Academic selection.
For the Aggie softball team, she was an All-WAC first team player and led the conference in hits (79), runs (41) and was second in batting average (.393).
She was also co-chair of Drive HOPE (Helping Other People Eat), an organization that collected more than 2,500 pounds of food for the underprivileged in Doña Ana County.
