Week's Achievements: Klonowski picked up his fourth win of the season Sunday with a seven strikeout, seven shutout inning effort at Ohio. The Huskies defeated the Bobcats 10-3 in the game to clinch the series over OU and improved to 11-4 in conference play. Klonowski scattered seven hits from the mound and only allowed one walk but fanned seven batters, including one for the final out of the fourth inning with the bases loaded. Klonowski did not finish the game as the Huskies built a 10-0 lead in the top of the seventh and gave way to the bullpen. Week's Achievements: Youel completed the most successful season by an individual in NIU women's tennis history with four wins over the weekend. She earned a pair of straight set wins at No. 1 singles over opponents from Ball State and Miami, and added two doubles wins (along with partner Arantza De La Torre) at No. 1 doubles. Youel's win versus Miami was her 27th singles win of the year, giving her sole possession of the Northern Illinois record to break the mark set 24 years ago, by Natacha Koprivica in 1988-89. Youel won her 22nd and 23rd doubles match of the year, the most by a Huskie since Monica Larson won 24 matches in 1989-90, to rank fourth on the NIU single season doubles wins list. Her 50 total victories this year rank second only to Koprivica's 54 in 1988-89.
