Hudson, Kruidhof Have Perfect Week
Long Beach State’s Jenelle Hudson and Megan Kruidhof claimed Big West Pairs Team of the Week Honors after a perfect week at the No. 5 spot.
Senior Jenelle Hudson (San Diego, Calif./Iowa State) and sophomore Megan Kruidhof (Lakewood, Calif./Lakewood HS) went a perfect 6-0 last week to improve their win-streak to nine-straight matches. The duo helped the Beach to a 4-2 mark on the week including two ranked victories over No. 12 Grand Canyon and No. 8 Arizona.
The tandem claimed 12-consecutive sets to improve to 21-2 as a pair. Hudson and Kruidhof also helped the 49ers remain unbeaten against lower-ranked opponents and helped keep things close as No. 2 Pepperdine and No. 3 UCLA just edged the Beach 3-2.
This is the first award for the pair and LBSU’s third this season.
