Elena Oglivie has been busy.

The ‘Iolani outside hitter won a world championship in Egypt with the U.S. Girls Youth National Team in mid-September. She then went with her ‘Iolani team to the Durango Fall Classic hosted by Durango High in Las Vegas.

The Raiders placed 13th out of 64 teams at Durango, and their ILH rival Kamehameha Warriors placed 10th.

Now, it’s back to the ILH wars. Defending Division I state champion ‘Iolani (5-2) is ranked No. 2 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Top 10 this week, behind No. 1 Punahou. The Warriors are right behind the Raiders at No. 3.

Tonight, Punahou (7-0) visits Kamehamaha (6-1) for an important match. The Raiders play at Mid-Pacific (2-5).

There won’t be time to rest for the top dogs in the league, however. ‘Iolani visits Punahou on Thursday night.

Oglivie, a senior who will play at Stanford next year, is a two-time Star-Advertiser state player of the year.
