This support comes in many forms such as planning events for the players and their families; community outreach programs; and camps and clinics. The group is also relied upon to fundraise to financially enhance the volleyball program.

She was also an active member of the Tyee Sports Council from 1992-1999 and holds season tickets to many Husky sports, including football, men's basketball and softball.

'I am thrilled with the opportunity to chair Point Huskies Advisory Board,' said Shibuya. I look forward to working with the coaching staff, members of the athletic department and volunteers to provide the support to the Husky volleyball program that they need as they seek our goal of a national championship.'
