Northern Illinois senior Sarah Angelos has been named the Mid-American Conference West Division’s Offensive Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
The honor is the third weekly award in Angelos’ career and the second for the Huskies in 2013.
“We thank the MAC for recognizing Sarah’s performance during the past week,” said NIU head coach Ray Gooden.
Angelos (Waukegan, Ill./Waukegan) continued her solid senior season against MAC West Division leaders Ball State and Toledo. Friday night against the Rockets, the Waukegan, Ill., native tallied 16 kills (3.2 kills/set) and a .406 attack percentage, along with three block assists, in a tough 3-2 loss to UT.
The next night at BSU, Angelos scored on nine kills (3.0 kills/set) and finished the night with a .350 hitting percentage in a 3-0 defeat against the Cardinals.
Combined, she finished the weekend with 3.12 kills/set and a .385 hitting percentage, leading NIU in both categories (minimum three attacks).
