‘Iolani’s Elena Oglivie, who last November became the first high school freshman in Hawaii named player of the year by a newspaper, was named to the CBS MaxPreps Freshman All-American team on Monday.

Kamehameha’s Lexis Akeo was also honored by MaxPreps with her selection to the Sophomore All-American team.

Oglivie was one of three finalists for the MaxPreps National Freshman of the Year honor after leading the Raiders to their first state girls volleyball championship since 2001. She averaged 4.1 kills and 4.5 digs per set according to MaxPreps and came up huge in the state tournament.

The 5-foot-10 Oglivie hit .400 with a team-high 19 kills and 13 digs in a sweep of Moanalua to open the state tournament and then hammered 25 kills and 17 digs in an upset of then-No. 1 Kahuku in the state semifinals.

In a rematch of the 2015 state final, Oglivie hit .367 with 23 kills and 22 digs in a win over Kamehameha.

Akeo, a 5-foot-9 starting setter for the Warriors, was ranked No. 5 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Fab. 15. She averaged 11.3 assists per set and 3.0 digs per set according to MaxPreps. She had a match-high 26 assists and four kills in four swings in a state semifinal sweep of King Kekaulike and finished with 46 assists and nine digs in a four-set loss to ‘Iolani.
