CHICAGO --- Roosevelt University's Haley Huss (Sherwood, Wis.) hit two inside-the-park home runs as part of a .611 week to earn Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week accolades, while St. Ambrose University's Ashley Yattoni (Bettendorf, Iowa) allowed no earned runs over four appearances to claim CCAC Pitcher of the Week recognition for the seven-day period ending April 16, the league office announced on Tuesday.

Huss, a sophomore shortstop, authored 11 hits in 18 at-bats over six games during the week of April 10-16 with the first four contests being multi-hit affairs.  She also drove in seven runs and produced a 1.111 slugging percentage.

The inside-the-park home runs came against Calumet St. Joseph last Tuesday and Indiana South Bend on Thursday.  She also drove in five runs with her four hits in a series split with Calumet St. Joseph.

Huss just missed hitting for the cycle in a 6-3 second-game loss to Indiana South Bend on Thursday, where she went a perfect 4-for-4 with a double and home run and drove in two runs.  She also produced the game-winning run in a 7-6 first-game victory, where she doubled and eventually scored on an error.

Roosevelt went 2-4 on the week and is 10-22 overall for the season.

Yattoni, a junior, went 3-1 during a 6-2 week for St. Ambrose and did not allow an earned run in 24 1/3 innings of work.  Her wins came against Robert Morris Illinois, Trinity International and Cardinal Stritch with the latter being a six-hit shutout on Saturday.  Yattoni worked the first four innings of a combined one-hitter in a 7-0 victory against Robert Morris on Tuesday and the first six innings of a 4-0 shutout versus Trinity International on Thursday.   

Yattoni's only setback came in a 1-0 extra-inning loss to Olivet Nazarene on Wednesday, where she allowed an unearned run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Yattoni also provided a spark at the plate during the week, going 5-for-13 (.385) with a triple, home run, two runs batted in and four runs scored.

For the season, Yattoni si 12-3 with a 2.17 earned run average.

St. Ambrose is 26-8 overall and 9-3 in league play.
