NACC Tabs Butler-Yeo For Back-To-Back Weekly Awards

MILWAUKEE -- For the second consecutive week and third time this season, Alverno College's Asia Butler-Yeo has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Women's Tennis Student-Athlete of the Week.

The recent award is for events of Oct.3-9, as selected by the league's sports information directors. She collected her first award this season for the week of Aug. 29-Sept. 4, and again Sept. 26-Oct. 2.

The Whitefish Bay native was a combined 6-0 last week as the Inferno went 3-0 in conference action, clinched the No. 3 seed in the NACC Tournament, and tied the school wins record at 11. The junior captured three wins at No. 1 singles, all in straight sets, to close the fall season with eight consecutive victories. She also teamed up with Brooke McBain for wins of 8-0, 8-5 and 8-0 at No. 1 doubles for her 14th straight win in doubles play.

Alverno (11-6, 7-2 NACC) will host No. 6 Milwaukee School of Engineering in a NACC Tournament first-round dual this May. The full spring portion of the schedule will be released this winter.
