TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — The University of Northern Iowa volleyball team wasted little time Friday delivering head coach Bobbi Petersen’s 500th career victory.
The Panthers (15-9 overall, 9-1 Missouri Valley Conference) dominated Indiana State (4-15, 2-7) 25-19, 25-9, 25-19.
Petersen joined her college coach, Iradge Ahrabi-Fard, in the 500-win club at UNI and is just the second Missouri Valley head coach to reach that mark. She trails Ahrabi-Fard by three wins on the Panthers’ all-time list and is nine behind Missouri State’s Melissa Stokes on the MVC list.
