AMES, Iowa - Iowa State head volleyball coach Christy Johnson-Lynch announced on Thursday the addition of setter Jenelle Hudson of San Diego, Calif. to the 2012-13 Cyclones squad.

A PrepVolleyball's No. 44-ranked Senior Ace in 2011 and a high school All-American, Hudson posted 21 assists, 14 kills, 22 digs, a solo block and four block assists in Bonita Vista's 3-1 loss to St. Lucy's in the CIF Girls State Volleyball Tournament last season. The Barons finished the season 29-7 overall and a perfect 10-0 in the Mesa League.

Prior to reaching the state tournament, the Barons advanced to the finals of the 2011 CIF-San Diego Section Div. II tournament, falling to La Costa Canyon in four sets.

Hudson's play throughout the season was rewarded as she was named the CIF-SDS Player of the Year.  The daughter of former Hawai'I all-conference standout Caroline (Taeatfa) Hudson, the future Cyclone was named Mesa League Player of the Year at in both 2010 and 2011.

A triple threat for the Barons, Hudson earned four letters in track and field and three letters as a forward on the basketball team.

One of the most dynamic players in the class of 2012 and still undecided, Hudson is the clear definition of a top prospect.  Volleyball obviously runs in the family - her mother played for the University of Hawaii and was an all conference performer.  Hudson is a skilled, experienced setter with the ability to also attack or play defense.  Her tremendous jump serve, passing and defense can break opponents' spirits.  Her speed and athleticism give her an advantage over most setters, but it's her court sense and volleyball acumen that set her apart.
