CHICAGO --- St. Ambrose University's Brandi Hosford (Morrison, Ill.) and Saint Xavier University's Ellie Willging (Freeport, Ill.) gained the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference women's indoor track & field spotlight for the second week in a row when the league office announced its weekly award winners for the seven-day period ending Feb. 12 on Wednesday morning.

Hosford, the CCAC Field Athlete of the Week, broke her own school record and improved upon her NAIA national-qualifying mark in the triple jump with her meet-best leap of 11.59 meters at the Monmouth Fighting Scot Invite on Saturday. The junior now boasts the nation's third-best jump in the event this year.

Hosford also placed fifth out of 16 individuals at the meet in the long jump with a 5.07-meter distance.
