Senior Amy Angelos recorded her 1,000th career kill and sophomore Jessie Tulacka tied for match high honors with 10 kills, but Northern Iowa collected eight blocks and held Bradley to a .154 attack percentage as the Panthers swept the Braves 25-18, 25-23, 25-18 Tuesday at Renaissance Coliseum. Angelos became the 12th player in program history to reach 1,000 career kills early in the opening set and finished with eight kills on the night to move up two spots on Bradley kills list into the top 10.  She passed Kathy Bickler (1,001 kills) and Andra Dystrup (1,003 kills) on the Bradley career kills chart after pushing her career total of 1,006. Northern Iowa (12-5 overall, 4-1 MVC) picked up its 11th victory in its last 12 outings with the sweep of the Braves, who dropped to 9-6 overall and 3-3 in Missouri Valley play. Leigh Pudwill paced a balanced UNI attack with 10 kills to tie Tulacka for match-high honors and was one of five Panther players with six or more kills in the contest. Tulacka’s 10 kills paced the Braves and sophomore Kristi Chynoweth added nine kills of her own while boasting a .438 hitting percentage.  Freshman setter Melissa Hoerber turned in her second straight double-double and fourth of the year with 21 assists and 13 digs.
