CHICAGO --- Leading their respective teams to strong starts in conference play and a total of four wins each on the week, Trinity Christian College's Danielle Oeverman (Byron Center, Mich.) and Dani VanLaten (Westmont, Ill.) and St. Ambrose University's Jenna Laxton (Moline, Ill.) have all earned recognition as Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Volleyball Players of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday morning.

Laxton, a junior libero, closed out the list of honorees as the CCAC Defender of the Week after posting double-digit digs in all six of her team's matches. She averaged 5.0 digs per set, while also turning in a .949 reception percentage. Her biggest match of the week came in a five-set win over conference foe Cardinal Stritch University (Wis.), where she had 22 digs, 32 receptions and five aces.

In four matches at the Lindenwood-Belleville Battle by the Arch, Laxton averaged a tournament-best 5.9 digs per set.

St. Ambrose went 4-2 on the week with two of the wins coming in five sets against league rivals Saint Xavier University and Cardinal Stritch to get the Fighting Bees off to a quick 2-0 start in the conference. Overall, St. Ambrose is 6-6.
