This week’s Fan Friday guest is Reydan “Tita” Ahuna, a true legend in Hawaii volleyball. The former Kamehameha standout would become one of the greatest setters in University of Hawaii history, and served as team captain for the Rainbow Wahine in their 1987 national championship season. Ahuna was a two-time AVCA All-American (1985-86), USVBA All-American (1986-87) and USVBA tournament MVP (1986-87), and the first Rainbow Wahine to reach the 1,000-kill, 1,000-dig plateau.
Later, as head coach, she would lead the Kamehameha boys varsity to two state titles and HPU to two national championships. Ahuna is currently co-athletic director and girls volleyball head coach at Punahou.
Ahuna is the only person in Hawai‘i volleyball history to win state high school and national collegiate titles as both a player and coach. 🤙
