WKU Volleyball sweeps AVCA South Region superlative awards
A banner 2019 just keeps getting better for Travis Hudson and the WKU volleyball team. The Lady Toppers racked up six combined All-Region honors from the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA). Hudson was named the AVCA’s South Region Coach of the Year while Lauren Matthews and Paige Briggs were voted the Region Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year, respectively. Briggs, Matthews and Nadia Dieudonne were all named to the AVCA’s South All-Region Team.
What makes this season even more special is Hudson’s 2019 team was also his first unit that did not contain an All-American since the 2009 campaign.
