Coach Shoji

A  L  O  H  A !
 “ Some people say 
I have attitude- 
maybe I do…
but I think you have to. 
You have to believe in yourself 
when no one else does
 – that makes you 
a winner right there.” 

 Venus Williams

“ Girls playing sports

 is not about winning

 gold medals.

 It’s about self-esteem, 

learning to compete 

and learning how hard 

you have to work

 in order to achieve

 your goals. ” 

Jackie Joyner-Kersee, 
Three-time Olympic gold medalist

In 1981,

 Dave Shoji became 

the first full-time coach

 of the University of Hawaii's

 women's volleyball program:

 Our beloved Rainbow Wahine.

 What an amazing ride it's been!

On friday night Coach Shoji

 - an all time 

NCAA Division 1 record!

And Dave's not done yet.

So congrats to a person

 that causes all Hawaii to smile.

Thanks to all the memorable players

 for all the thrills

and championships over the years.
