Olsen's Catoctin High School team went to the 2001 state semi-finals. She was the second leading scorer in high school and was the leading scorer on her club team. In 2000, she was named to the All Mid-Maryland and All-Conference team. Olsen played club soccer for the Frederick United Express, which ended the 2000 season in the State Cup semi-finals.
