HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warrior volleyball team made their way to the State Capitol this morning in Honolulu to be recognized for their accomplishments this season by Governor David Ige.
Gov. Ige, who attended numerous matches at the Stan Sheriff Center this season as well as Hawaii’s NCAA championship showdown against Long Beach State last weekend, honored the players and the coaching staff for their hard work and dedication over the past few months.
The Warriors set an NCAA record 74-straight sets won, a new program record 25-straight matches won and clinched the program's first ever Big West title.
“Most importantly, we -- as observers and as fans and as people of the State of Hawaii -- could get the sense that you cared about each other,” said Gov. Ige. “Which I think is something you don’t get in programs all across the country.”
