Monday's doubleheader marked the last prominent spectator sports that will take place at BYU-Hawaii.
The university's "cheerleaders cheered for the last time," the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. "Chants of 'SEA! SIDERS!' … rang out loud and proud from the student-infused crowd of 1,287."
Through the years, the small college, owned by the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and carrying a student body of just under 3,000, had made a name for itself in several sports.
"In hoops it made [a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics] Final Four in 1992," the newspaper said, "and the 2011 [NCAA Division II] championship game."
Hauula resident Harold Palimoo, 59, has been going to volleyball and basketball games on the lush campus since the 1980s.
"I'm saddened. I really don't want it to go away," Palimoo, who wore an "I heart Seasiders" shirt, told the paper. "But it's the leaders of the church that make the decisions, so I guess you can't argue with them."
Perhaps fittingly for a school losing its athletic programs, BYU-Hawaii lost both final basketball games. The men fell 84-66 and the women 81-58 to Point Loma as the night went from hoopla to hoop low.
BYU-Idaho, then Ricks College, dropped its intercollegiate sports more than a decade ago.
The LDS Church's flagship university, in Provo, continues to field a range of competitive teams. The Cougars have racked up scores of titles and amassed a nationwide following, especially in football.
