Mead’s Olgard is state’s Gatorade Player of the Year

Alexis Olgard, a 6-foot-5 senior from Mead of Spokane, is the Gatorade Washington Volleyball Player of the Year.

That comes as no surprise after she led the Panthers to the Class 4A state championship last month, earning MVP honors. A four-year starter, Olgard was also a key part of Mead’s title teams in 2006 and ’07. The team placed seventh in 2008.

Olgard, who has signed with USC, posted impressive numbers for the 32-2 Panthers, who were unbeaten in Washington. She recorded 382 kills, 211 digs, 124 blocks and 53 aces and is also a member of the U.S. Women’s Junior National team.
