Hughes was also chosen as the Liberty District’s Defensive Player of the Year this past season. His play helped W-L finish 5-6 overall, earn a 6D North Region tournament playoff berth and finish in a three-way tie for second in the league standings with a 4-2 record.
Hughes and the Generals were the only district team to defeat the champion Langley Saxons this season in league play.
