Northern Iowa head volleyball coach Bobbi Petersen earned her 400th career victory as the Panthers scored a 3-0 win over the Bradley Braves at the Renaissance Coliseum. UNI won by set scores of 25-20, 25-18, 25-19.

Petersen becomes only the fourth Missouri Valley Conference volleyball coach to earn 400 victories. She joins Linda Dollar (758 wins - Missouri State), Iradge Ahrabi-Fard (503 wins - UNI) and Melissa Stokes (425 wins - Missouri State) in the MVC's 400 victory club.

UNI (9-7 overall, 3-0 MVC) won its fifth consecutive match behind a balanced offensive attack. Bri Weber notched her 11th double-double with 10 kills and 17 digs. Kayla Haneline tied her with a team-high 10 kills (.444 hitting percentage). Piper Thomas and Lindsey Schulz each added eight kills in the victory over the Braves. Thomas supplied a career-high seven blocks.
