Roe earns national honor

Boulder City middle hitter Maggie Roe has been selected among the best freshman volleyball players in the nation by prepvolleyball.com.

The Internet website annually selects the FROSH 59 elite team, a list of what the site considers to be the nation’s most outstanding varsity-playing freshmen in the nation during the 2014 fall season.

An additional 200 freshmen are listed among Highest Honorable Mention, Special Mention and Honorable Mention categories.

“It feels unreal and exciting at the same time,” Roe said.

Roe, a 6-foot, 1-inch middle blocker, is the daughter of Boulder City volleyball coach Cherise Hinman, who will be coaching her 20th season at the school next fall, and Boulder City girls track coach Steve Roe.

“This is a really huge accolade. I’d be thrilled for any of my players, but I am especially proud that my daughter made the list,” Hinman said.

The website wrote about Roe as follows: “Maggie was basically unstoppable at the net last fall, as she finished the season with a kill percent of 63.6 with 154 kills, and a hitting percent of .496. Roe was also credited with 80 blocks.

“Her dominating net play helped lead the Lady Eagles to the Sunrise League championship and a third-place finish in Division I-A Southern Region. The Lady Eagles had an overall record of 24-9.”

Roe was the only freshman to be selected All-Sunrise League first-team and Division I-A All-Southern Region second-team.
