Hudson tabs Leslie Speakman for girls hoops coach

Hudson athletic director Keith Newton confirmed Thursday afternoon that the school has officially hired Leslie Speakman as the next girls basketball coach.
Speakman, a social studies teacher at Hudson, was chosen in favor of Billy Nero, who was the interim coach for the second half of the Cobras’ season this winter. Hudson advertised the opening Feb. 15th, and Newton said the school was looking to make a hire within a two-week period.
Midseason, Laurie Tyszko stepped down as coach, and Nero stepped in on an interim basis. The Cobras finished 2-22 this past season.
Tyszko previously coached at Land O’ Lakes in the 2010-11 season and led the Gators to a 24-3 record and a trip to the region finals. During the Summer 2011, Tyszko took the same position at Hudson and in her first season went 1-26.
