A few of her accolades include Gatorade State Player of the Year, NSCAA National High School Player of the Year, and Parade All-American honors.
After high school, she moved on to North Carolina Tar Heels at the University of North Carolina. She played with them from 2010 to 2013 and wound up leading the team in both points and goals by her third year.
In 2014, her talents got her selected for the 2014 NWSL College Draft by the Houston Dash.
The team’s head coach, Randy Waldrum, said: “I couldn’t have asked for things to fall into place so well. It was an amazing day for the Dash. Starting with the selection of Kealia Ohai, we got one of the nation’s best forwards. She has great pace, is extremely athletic, and can really stretch defenses with her speed.”
