LAIE, HAWAII -- The BYU-Hawaii women's volleyball team moved from the NAIA to the NCAA Division II, but in spite of the change the Seasiders came away with their ninth national championship. The team returned Sunday from Battle Creek, Michigan where they had played in the championship tournament, beating Tampa in the final, 15-3, 15-12, 15-13.

"It felt like it was harder to get the chance to be in the national tournament than to play the matches," said junior hitter Vanessa Valansi, "Once we got there, I felt that we'd win. And I hope we can do itagain next year."

The team finished the year 30-2, its only losses coming from cross-island rival Hawaii Pacific University.
