Maggie Roe, originally from Boulder City High School in Nevada, is coming off of a season in which she helped lead her team to the state tournament for the first time in 28 years. She inked her name to join the Western New Mexico University volleyball team for the 2018 year.

"Maggie Roe became a Mustang in this early signing period. A right side/setter from Nevada, she comes to us with tremendous potential. Her height, agility, and speed make her a threat on the block and attack," Head Coach Jim Callender said. "The thing that sets Maggie apart is her work ethic and attitude. She is a tremendous worker, and while she is merely scratching the ceiling of her potential, this blue collar hard-working attitude will propel her to be a top performer sooner rather than later. Her outgoing personality will be infectious in our gym and we are thrilled as a staff to bring her on board."

Roe, at 6-foot-1, played all over in helping lead Boulder City to a 28-14 campaign this past year and to the first state championships in 28 years. During their epic run to the title, Boulder City pulled off a five-set win against Moapa Valley. In the match, Roe had 27 kills, 11 assists, seven digs and four blocks. She sent down one of her kills for match point to send the Eagles' crowd into a frenzy. During her senior season she compiled 494 kills, 276 digs, 299 assists and 77 total blocks in 121 sets played. For her career she saw action in 426 sets, tallying 1,442 kills, a .457 hitting percentage, 283 total blocks, 887 digs and 320 service aces. In addition she took home All-America Honorable Mention honors by the American Volleyball Coaches Association and was the 3A Player of the Year in Nevada.

Roe had a high in kills with 494 during her senior year, adding 457 during her junior year. She had at least 259 digs in three seasons, with a high of 333 during her junior year.
