Sunday will be Senior Day for NIU’s Nelle Youel, Mary Malkin, Arantza De La Torre and Stephanie McDonald.

Youel is the program’s all-time wins leaders in singles victory and combined victories. She needs one win in doubles play to take sole possession of the career doubles victories.

The Huskies are seeded No. 4 out of nine MAC teams with four regular season games to go. The top six teams make the MAC Championships.
