Kansas men’s basketball strength coach Andrea Hudy will soon be receiving a prestigious national honor.
The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) will be presenting Hudy with its “Impact Award,” which is given each year to an individual whose career has greatly contributed to the advancement of the industry.
Hudy, who will receive the honor during the NSCA’s national conference from July 12-15 in Las Vegas, was selected by the group’s board of directors.
“As someone who has cultivated the craft from the influence and example of so many great coaches, researchers and mentors, it is overwhelming and humbling to be recognized with this distinction,” Hudy said.
Entering her 14th season with the Jayhawks, Hudy previously was named the National College Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year by the NSCA in 2013.
