Congratulations to Wendy Anae on being named the new head coach of BYU-Hawai'i Women's Basketball Team. Anae is the sister of current BYU Offensive Coordinator Robert Anae and daugther of Famika Anae (1954-1955) who is believed to be the first Samoan to play football at BYU and was also a former head football coach at Kahuku High School.

Brigham Young-Hawaii named former Kahuku High coach Wendy Anae as the head coach of its new women's basketball team.

Anae will try to build the program from the ground up. She coached at Timpview High in Provo, Utah, this year and took her team to the semifinals of the state tournament.

She coached Kahuku for three years -- from 2003 to 2005 after serving as an assistant with the Red Raiders for four years. She led the Red Raiders to two appearances in the state final.

Anae also played n the Samoan national women's team that won the gold medal at the South Pacific Games in 2003.

"We're excited to have her," BYUH athletic director Ken Wagner said. "She's proven herself to be an excellent coach. She's from here and knows the state and the area and we think she'll do really well."
