Week's Achievements: Huskie punter Ryan Neir played a big role in NIU’s defensive-minded win over Eastern Michigan Friday which clinched the MAC West title for Northern Illinois. Punting into a strong wind for half of the day, Neir kicked seven times for 252 yards to average 36 yards per punt. His day included a career-long 54-yard punt downed at the EMU one-yard line which eventually resulted in a safety by the NIU defense and a field goal on the Huskies’ drive after the free kick. Neir also booted a 51-yard punt in the third quarter. The Roscoe, Ill., native has had only one punt returned this year for positive yardage. Week's Achievements: Sarah Angelos put together a solid all-around match in NIU's 3-0 win over Marquette to wrap up regular season play. The sophomore middle blocker accumulated six kills, hit. 333, and racked up three blocks, two assists, and one dig against the Golden Eagles.
