Hudson, Kruidhof Named Big West Pairs Team of the Week
The pair went a perfect 6-0 for No. 5 Long Beach State last week.
Long Beach, Calif. - Senior Jenelle Hudson and Sophomore Megan Kruidhof went a perfect 6-0 last week, extending their winning streak in the fifth flight to nine straight matches on the way to Big West Pairs Team of the Week honors.
Despite facing four Top 15 opponents in the week’s matches, Hudson and Kruidhof won all six matches they played in straight sets, helping Long Beach State to a 4-2 overall record, including a pair of wins that really solidified the 49ers’ postseason chances by beating No. 8 Arizona and No. 12 Grand Canyon.
The duo also set Long Beach State up for success as the Beach nearly toppled both No. 2 Pepperdine and No. 3 UCLA, falling in both matches 3-2 overall despite straight set wins in both from Hudson/Kruidhof.
With the six wins, Hudson also reached an individual milestone, becoming the sixth LBSU player to reach 50 career wins and the second this season after Rachel Nieto.
Together, Hudson and Kruidhof are now 21-2 overall on the year, having played all of their dual matches at No. 5.
The honor is the first of the season for the pair and the third of the season for Long Beach State, with Nieto and Nele Barber claiming the previous honors.
