De Kruijf won "de Ingrid Visser" Award for the best female volleyball player of 2019.
De Kruijf was preferred by the jury above Britt Bongaerts, who received more points from the fans with a small difference.
The jury report says:
"De Kruijf is very successful at her club, in both national and international competitions. And with the national team, she performed very well and stayed at her normal level where others did not perform well".
IMHO a good and deserved winner
I would have liked if Bongaerts won it, but I hope it gives her convidence and she develop a lot more. She can become the real leader in a couple of years for the NT!
