Chaminade hires new Women's Volleyball head coach

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Chaminade University has hired its former Silversword women's volleyball star Kahala Kabalis as its new head coach for its women's volleyball team. Kabalis has served as an assistant coach for Hawaii Pacific University women's volleyball team for the past three years. In 2011, she served as the head volleyball coach at Le Jardin High School in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH). Before that, she served for three years as head coach at Radford High School of the Oahu Interscholastic League (OIA).  Back in 2006, she founded the HI Intensity Volleyball Club on Oahu.

The Chaminade master's degree graduate, currently working on a Doctorate of Philosophy degree in Education at Capella University, stated that her career goal has been "to acquire a head coach position at the collegiate level in Hawaii and achieve success by winning conference championships and qualifying for the NCAA National Tournament." Kabalis said, "Now that I'm here, I can't wait to get started."

As a collegiate player, Kabalis earned Pacific West Conference first team honors in 2003 and 2004 while playing women's volleyball for the Silverswords.  She graduated from Moanalua High School in 2001 where she earned first team girls volleyball all-state and OIA honors. 

Chaminade athletics director, Bill Villa, is excited. "Kahala understands Chaminade and has a keen sense of pride and understanding of who we are and what we want to accomplish," he said. "She has been successfully involved in the PacWest for 6 years both as a player and coach.   Kahala is a great role model for our student-athletes.  She excelled as a student, performed at the highest level as an athlete, dedicated herself to developing her coaching skills and is now back home at Chaminade to take on this opportunity as the leader of our women's volleyball program.  We are proud and thrilled to have her with us."
