FINAL FOUR HOST

UH Hosts 1999 NCAA Women's Volleyball Tournament

For the second time in school history, the University of Hawai'i will host the NCAA Women's Volleyball Championship. The 1999 edition will take place on Dec. 16 & 18 at the 10,300-seat Stan Sheriff Center on the UH Lower Campus.
UH hosted its first NCAA final four in 1989 at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center. That year Long Beach State denied the Wahine a chance to play at home for the championship, ousting UH in the Northwest Regional finals. The Beach went on to defeat Nebraska in the NCAA championship match before 5,693 at Blaisdell Center. Texas-Arlington and UCLA made up the rest of the field.
The Rainbow Wahine have called the Stan Sheriff Center home for the past five years. Each year they have led the nation in attendance while averaging over 7,000 per contest. In each of the last four years, UH has eclipsed the 100,000 mark in season attendance becoming the only school in NCAA history to accomplish that feat.
In May 1998, the Stan Sheriff Center was the site for the NCAA Men's Volleyball Championship. Loyal UH volleyball fans set final four records for single-match attendance (9,822) and two-day total attendance (18,901).
