ST. LOUIS, Mo. – For the second time this season, Eureka College senior guard Hayley Reneau (Washington, Ill./Washington H.S./Illinois Central) and junior guard Shea Feehan (Peoria, Ill./Notre Dame H.S.) have swept the women's and men's St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week awards, the league office announced Monday.

Reneau helped the first-place Red Devils extend their SLIAC win streak to eight, averaging 24.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in league road wins at Fontbonne and Greenville. She shot 43 percent from the floor, 48 percent from 3-point range for the week and her seven triples Wednesday at Fontbonne were one shy of equaling Eureka's single-game record. Reneau has now won the SLIAC Player of the Week award four times this season.

Feehan averaged 45.5 points and shot 64 percent (29-for-45) from the field in two league road games last week. He also averaged 6.0 rebounds, shot 45 percent from 3-point range (9-for-20) and 80 percent (24-for-30) at the foul line. The Peoria Notre Dame product put up 44 points in EC's 84-78 win at Fontbonne on Wednesday, his third 40-point game of the season. He followed the effort with 47 points Saturday Greenville, two points shy of his own single-game Eureka scoring record and four points shy of the single-game SLIAC scoring mark. Monday's announcement marks Feehan's fourth weekly award from the SLIAC this season.

Both Eureka squads will be back in conference action Wednesday in a doubleheader against MacMurray at Christine Bonati Bollwinkle Arena. The women will begin at 6 p.m., followed by the men's game at 8 p.m.
