Beth Christiansen-Hutson

Hutson (Christiansen) helped lead Butler to four consecutive conference volleyball championships and the best single season record (29-7 in 1988) in school history. The talented middle hitter was a three-time all-conference performer, Butler’s Most Outstanding Offensive Player (1987) and Co-Most Valuable Player (1990), and a Co-Player of the Year in the Midwestern Collegiate Conference (1990). She set a host of school and conference records during her four seasons, finishing her final campaign in second place on Butler’s all-time lists for hitting percentage, service aces, block assists and total blocks. An Academic All-American and a recipient of a 1991 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship, Hutson became just the second female athlete from Butler to receive the MCC’s Cecil N. Coleman Medal of Honor for outstanding achievement in athletics, academics and extracurricular activities.
