FREDERICK, Md.--Sophomore Stephen McNamara of the men's cross country team and first-year Gretchen Whitesell of the women's cross country team have been selected as the Hood College Athletes of the Week for the week ending Oct. 30.

McNamara, from Bayside, N.Y., and Whitesell, from Myersville, both earned all-Capital Athletic Conference honors and helped the Blazers post their best team finish at the 2011 CAC championship, which was held at York College (Pa.) on an uncharacteristically snowy and blustery October morning. Both runners helped their respective squads to fourth-place team finishes ahead of St. Mary's College, Frostburg State University, Marymount University, Stevenson University and Wesley College.

McNamara's 11th-place performance in the 8K race earned him designation as an all-CAC runner. He is the second runner in program history to gain the honor; teammate Dan Jacobs was the first last year.

Whitesell was one of two Blazer women to receive all-CAC accolades (sophomore captain Alyssa Peterson was the other) and was selected by the conference coaches as the CAC Rookie of the Year. She is the third Hood student-athlete to claim a CAC Rookie of the Year plaque, joining track and field sprinter Jessica Parrish (2009) and golfer Aaron Prescott (2008). Whitesell placed eighth, the highest finish ever for a Hood cross country runner at the CACs.

The Blazers are idle this weekend before traveling to DeSales University for the NCAA Division III Mid-East Regionals on Saturday, Nov. 14 at 11 a.m.
