Week's Achievements: Volk started in NIU’s game against Akron on Saturday. The game was more of a defensive battle, but Volk, along with the rest of the offensive line, was able to help keep the offense moving and put points up on the board. As a result, the Huskies had two players rush for more than 80 yards, with the team accumulating 179 on the ground in total. In the passing game, Volk aided an offensive line that allowed only one sack all game. Week's Achievements: Angelos 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).
