Wahine Volleyball: 40 Years Coaching Hawaii’s Team Product Description:

Dave Shoji, legendary coach for the University of Hawaii’s women’s volleyball program, looks back at four decades of coaching to tell his story along with that of the Rainbow Wahine, four-time national champions and among the top-ranked teams in college sports. With the assistance of longtime beat reporter Ann Miller, Shoji provides an exclusive look at the state’s perennially successful athletic team. His memoir traces the history and rise of the program – from 1975, when he was hired as a part-time coach by women’s athletic director Donnis Thompson through the landmark 2013 season when Shoji became the winningest coach in NCAA history and on his way to a fortieth year with the Rainbow Wahine program.

Interviews with memorable players, family, and assistant and rival coaches, together with more than one hundred action photos, bring back both thrilling and poignant memories of the greatest moments of Rainbow Wahine volleyball. The comprehensive yearly statistics, full player rosters, and handy index make the book a needed reference for trivia buffs. A keepsake for fans and players alike, Wahine Volleyball: 40 Years Coaching Hawaii’s Team will delight any sports enthusiast as well as readers who enjoy first-person remembrances of what makes Hawaii unique.
