Four Xavier College Preparatory students have been recognized by PrepVolleyball for their excellence both on the court and in the classroom.

Xavier senior Khalia Lanier, who was honored as the 2015 Gatorade National Player of the Year in December and will attend the University of Southern California in the fall, was named to the 2015 PrepVolleyball.com High School Volleyball All-American First Team for the third consecutive year.

Senior Callie Jones, who will attend Santa Clara University in the fall, was named to the 2015 PrepVolleyball.com High School Volleyball Academic All-American First Team.  Miss Jones and senior Kristen Largay, who will attend American University in the fall, were both named to the 2015 PrepVolleyball.com High School Volleyball All-American Special Mention Team.  Earlier this year, the two teammates were also named First Team Volleyball All-Americans by the Dairy Council of Arizona and the Arizona Coaches Association.

Freshman Shannon Shields was named to the 2015 PrepVolleyball.com “FROSH 59” List, which highlights the top freshmen in the nation playing on varsity volleyball teams, according to a press release.
