Nikki Shade Named Assistant Volleyball Coach

HOUSTON -- Nikki Shade has joined the University of Houston volleyball staff as an assistant coach announced Cougar head coach on Bill Walton.

Shade, 25, joins the UH women's volleyball program from the University of Florida where she completed her undergraduate degree in Engineering. As a four-year letterwinner for the Gator volleyball team from 1993-97, Shade earned First Team All-Southeast Conference honors and led Florida to back-to-back Final Four appearances as the team's starting setter.

The native of DeSoto, Texas, and former standout from Duncanville High School twice earned Academic All-America honors for the Gators from the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA). Shade twice participated in the Junior Olympics and was a nationally-regarded club player for Mid-Cities.

Shade will assist in all areas of the Houston program as the second assistant coach and contribute her knowledge of setting skills to the popular Cougar volleyball camps in the summer. She has joined the UH volleyball staff on the eve of the upcoming 2000 season, which officially begins at home in Hofheinz Pavilion on September 1 against Texas-Arlington.

Last year the Cougar volleyball team compiled a 21-11 record and advanced to national postseason play for the 11th consecutive year after earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Cougars will play an exhibition against a UH Alumnae team on Saturday, August 26.
