Linn-Mar High School - Marion, Iowa

Ollinger wins Metro Spotlight Award

Amanda Ollinger of Linn-Mar is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school girls this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Ollinger, a 6-foot-1 senior, is one of the top basketball players in the state. She averaged 25 points in two games during the first week of the regular season and helped the 10th-ranked Lions get off to a 2-0 start.

Ollinger poured in 30 points against Waterloo East on Tuesday and followed that performance with 20 points and six steals against Muscatine on Saturday.



Ollinger sparks No.10 Lions with defense

Amanda Ollinger can have a big impact on a basketball game even when she's not shooting well from the floor.

She proved it Saturday night.

Ollinger made six steals and sparked Linn-Mar with her defense as the 10th-ranked Lions put the clamps on Muscatine, 49-29, in a non-conference game in the Linn-Mar gym.

Ollinger scored a game-high 20 points but shot only 7-for-19 from the field, including 1-for-6 on 3-pointers. The all-state forward got a lot of her points with her defense and steals.
