Current MAC West Offensive player of the week Lauren Wicinski attempts a kill vs. DePaul on Tuesday, September 21.

NIU volleyball followed up a perfect weekend with a straight-set victory over visiting DePaul on Tuesday night at Victor E. Huskie Court.  Freshman outside hitter and current MAC West Offensive player of the week Lauren Wicinski again led the way for Northern Illinois with a game-high 17 kills.  Junior Allison McGlaughlin contributed 13 kills while sophomore Meghan Romo added 9 kills to pace the Huskie attack. 

The victory was the third-straight for head coach Ray Gooden’s squad after wins over Youngstown State and Iowa this past weekend.  NIU’s record now stands at 14-1 on the season.  Tuesday’s match would serve as a final tune-up before the Huskies open up Mid-American Conference play this Friday when they host Ball State for a 7:00 pm match at Victor E. Huskie Court.
