FREDERICK, Md.--Senior captain William Andrews of the men's cross country team has been chosen as the Hood College Athlete of the Week for the week ending Oct. 25.
Andrews set the pace Saturday at Hood's dual meet with Southern Virginia University. His time of 17:33.74 in the 5K run around Hood's campus earned him top honors for the first time this season and led the Blazers' to a 22-33 victory over the Knights.
Andrews, who also serves as team captain for the Hood men, is the first member of the men's cross country team to cop Hood Athlete of the Week accolades. He has been the Blazers' top finisher in three races this fall.
The Blazers have two weeks off to train for the Capital Athletic Conference championships. Hood is the host for this year's event, which will take place Saturday, Nov. 7, at 11 a.m. at Heritage Farm Park in Walkersville.
