PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Jessica Christianson, Hudson, Sr. - There's a familiar phrase in athletics, something about defense winning championships. It's a colloquialism that applies to many sports, including volleyball. Christianson, Hudson's libero, scooped up practically every free ball, errant pass and kill attempt directed to the Cobras side of the court. During the 2009 season, her senior season, she collected a program-record 452 digs. The great majority of those digs were converted into precise passes, setting up her offense for an attack.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Shayna Munson, Hudson - Munson took over the Cobras program from legendary coach Linda McQuade and in a few short months had the team in the FHSAA final four. Sure, she inherited some talented players who had been together for some time, but before getting to that 25-4 record, Munson made sure players understood things would be done her way and her way only. After some adjusting, the new approach set in and the Cobras were untouchable, losing to eventual Class 4A champions Jensen Beach in the state semifinals. The last time Hudson reached the final four was in 2004 when they played for the 4A title.
