Hudson, Kruidhof Win Second Weekly Award

April 24, 2017

Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State’s Jenelle Hudson and Megan Kruidhof were named the Big West Pairs Team of the Week after winning both of their matches in the regular season finale.

Hudson and Kruidhof opened the final tri-dual of the season with a 21-10, 21-15 victory over CSU Bakersfield. The duo then defeated Jenna Belton and Jo Kremer of No. 1 USC, rallying from a first set loss to win 14-21, 21-19, 15-10.

The pair finished the regular season with an overall record of 24-3, and have helped place No. 5 Long Beach State in good position to be a high seed in the upcoming Big West Tournament. The Beach also looks to be in a strong position to make their first NCAA Tournament appearance in Beach Volleyball’s second season as an NCAA Championship sport.

The pair earn the honor for the second time, and are now tied with Nele Barber and Rachel Nieto with the most weekly honors given by the conference this season. Long Beach State has now won the honor five times in the eight weeks awarded so far this season. Anete Brinke and Hailey Harward were last week’s winners, also representing LBSU.
