WOMEN'S SOCCER: Ksiazek earns MAC honors

Northern Illinois senior Courtney Ksiazek was named the Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Week for last week.

The NIU women’s soccer team clinched a MAC Tournament berth for the second consecutive season with two wins. NIU defeated Kent State, 2-1, at home on Friday and then held on for a 2-1 victory over Ohio on Sunday.

Will NIU football win the MAC this season?
