Aloha, Rainbow Wahine Volleyball Supporters!


The Wahine Volleyball Booster Club was formally organized in 1987 but has been informally supporting the Rainbow Wahine Volleyball program since the very early 80's. Its primary purpose is to support the University of Hawai‘i Rainbow Wahine Volleyball program so that it can remain one of the elite programs in the country. It does this through monetary donations, organizing and running special program events, and providing that special sense of ohana to the players and staff that is so unique to Hawai‘i. At the wheel of this organization are four officers and four directors who are elected every two years. They set the course and direction for the club, but it is our members who volunteer for the various activities of the club that power the organization. Our family of volunteers are always ready to help -- not only our team, but the visiting teams as well. The reputation of our volleyball program and its booster organization is well known among the coaching fraternity and many look forward to scheduling a trip to the "fabled land of volleyball".

The Wahine Volleyball Booster Club operates as a sub-entity under ‘Ahahui Koa Anuenue, a Hawai‘i nonprofit corporation, which is the umbrella fundraising organization for all UH-Manoa athletic booster groups. All funds raised by AKA and its booster clubs, including the Wahine Volleyball Booster Club, are deposited with and managed by The University of Hawai‘i Foundation.

The University of Hawai‘i Foundation, or UH Foundation, is also a Hawai‘i nonprofit corporation and it has a 501(c)(3) organization designation from the Internal Revenue Service. It is a legally separate entity from the University of Hawai‘i and all other UH affiliates. However, it is institutionally related in that UHF works exclusively for the benefit of the University of Hawai‘i. UHF is the tax exempt charitable organization contracted by UH to be the central organization that receives, receipts and holds all donations made to AKA and booster clubs that support UH Manoa athletics programs. The Athletics Department uses funds, donations, and contributions received by UHF in accordance with the donors’ intents, NCAA regulations, and UHF expenditure policies.

Our Mission
It is the mission of the Wahine Volleyball Booster Club to provide financial and moral support, attract new fans, and promote a positive environment that will maintain the nation’s elite volleyball program.

Our Vision
To provide the best academic and athletic environment for the student athletes at any university in America.

Emily Hartong is AVCA 1st Team All-American and Senior CLASS 2nd Team All-American (12/19/13)


University of Hawai'i Rainbow Wahine outside hitter Emily Hartong has been named to the 2013 Senior CLASS Division I Women's Volleyball All-America Team.

The award, chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I volleyball coaches, national volleyball media and fans, is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I volleyball. Hartong, who garnered second-team honors, finished second in the online portion of the voting and Penn State's Ariel Scott was named the overall winner.

Earlier in the week, the American Volleyball Coaches Association announced its All-America teams with Hartong named to the first team. She will be presented her award tomorrow in Seattle at the AVCA All-America/Players of the Year luncheon banquet.

Hartong earned a spot on the first team for the second time after being named a second team All-American as a sophomore in 2011. The honor caps a stellar season and career for the Los Alamitos, California native. This season she received her third AVCA all-region selection and was voted Big West Player of the Year for the second time. Hartong leaves UH ranked eighth all-time with 1,494 kills, a remarkable stat considering she spent her first two seasons as a middle hitter for the Rainbow Wahine.

Big West Coaches pick Rainbow Wahine to Win Second Straight Title (08/06/13)


Irvine, CA (from bigwest.org) – For the second straight year the University of Hawai‘i has been selected as the Big West Conference’s top pick in the women’s volleyball preseason poll, as selected by the nine league coaches.

The Rainbow Wahine were a unanimous favorite, collecting all nine first-place votes en route to an 81-point total. Long Beach State secured second place with 72 points and was followed by Cal State Northridge, who captured the third slot with 59 points.

In its first year back in the Big West Conference after a 16-year hiatus, Hawai’i posted a perfect 18-0 league mark in 2012 to capture its sixth conference championship. This marked the first perfect season in conference play since UC Santa Barbara posted an unblemished 18-0 record in 2002. The Rainbow Wahine, who concluded last season with an overall mark of 27-3, return four staters and their libero. Look for All-Big West First Team members senior Emily Hartong and Sophomore Jade Vorster to guide the Rainbow Wahine in 2013. Last year Hartong tallied a conference-best 4.66 kill average while Vorster registered a league-high .388 hitting percentage.

Like Hawai’i, the 49ers return a majority of their talent from the 2012 season as Long Beach State welcomes back four starers, plus their libero. Long Beach State is coming off a season in which it boasted a 13-5 mark in Big West play to finish second. Leading the way for the 49ers in 2013 are juniors Haleigh Hampton and Chisom Okpala and senior Delainey Aigner-Sweesey. Okpala concluded last season third in hitting percentage with a .328 clip and fifth in blocks with a 1.17 average. Hampton, who missed last season due to an injury, earned All-America status in 2011 after pacing the league and ranking third in the nation with a 1.50 block average.

In 2012, Cal State Northridge finished third in the Big West for the second straight season with a 12-6 mark. The Matadors also posted their first 20-plus win season since 1996 with a 21-10 record. Under the guidance of Head Coach Jeff Stork, the Matadors look to continue their success this season as they return their entire starting lineup which includes All-Big West First Team members juniors Casey Hinger and Natalie Allen and senior Sydney Gedryn. Hinger led the conference in blocks last season with a 1.33 average, while Gedryn finished seventh with a .284 hitting percentage.

The Aggies of UC Davis clinched the fourth spot with 43 points while UC Irvine grabbed 40 points to land in fifth place. Under the helm of first-year coach Nicole Lantagne Welch, UC Santa Barbara holds the sixth slot with 36 points with Cal State Fullerton one point back in seventh place. Rounding out the nine-team field are Cal Poly (28) and UC Riverside (11), who sit eighth and ninth.
