husky or hoarse

Hello everyone,
Is either "hoarse" or "husky" correct in thr following sentences?
1. My voice became hoarse because I spoke loudly in all the lessons.
2. My voice became husky because I spoke loudly in all the lessons.
I think neither is natural, but I hope you give me some natural alternatives for that situation.
Regards,
Joseph

    "Hoarse" is fine. "Husky" might work, but I usually think of someone as having a husky voice as being that way all the time, not from straining their voice.

    I agree. I think husky is characteristic of someone who is especially large/strong/overweight in my usage.
