On this date in 2013, it was a historic night in Manoa. A 4-set win by 9th ranked Hawaii over Santa Clara pushed the Bows to a 4-1 record overall, 2-0 in the Hawaiian Airlines Wahine Volleyball Classic. But this win was more than just a win. For then head coach Dave Shoji, the win over the Broncos was his 1,107th career win and made him the winningest coach in NCAA Division I women’s volleyball history, surpassing former UCLA coach Andy Banachoswski, who was in attendance that night. The AVCA Hall of Famer and 5x National Coach of the Year would go on to lead the Rainbow Wahine to 95 more wins for a total of 1,202 wins, and continue to hold the NCAA Division I record until he was later passed by Penn State’s Russ Rose.
