FREDERICK, Md.--Senior vault specialist Chris DiGangi of the men's track and field team and sophomore thrower Meghan Rose of the women's track and field team have been selected as the Hood College Athletes of the Week for the week ending Feb. 12.

DiGangi and Rose both won two events at Saturday's Albright College Invitational in Reading, Pa.

DiGangi, from Brick, N.J., won the high jump and pole vault, helping the Blazers place second out of 10 teams at the indoor meet. His win in the pole vault at 4.25 meters (13' 11.25") represented the fourth consecutive time he has vaulted over 4.15 meters, and his third win. He also high jumped 5' 5", two inches better than runner-up Brad Ohlinger of Albright. DiGangi is the top-ranked athlete in the vault in the Capital Athletic Conference heading into Sunday's first-ever indoor conference championships.

Rose, from Baltimore, Md., won the shot and the weight throw as the Blazers captured their second team title of the indoor season at Albright. Her shot of 37' 5.75" was only 3/4ths of an inch under her school record from last season. Rose also outdistanced runner-up Amanda Searle for the weight throw title by 10 inches with a toss of 39' 10.5". She is ranked in the top five in the conference in both throwing events.

The Blazers travel to George Mason University Sunday for the CAC indoor championships beginning at 10:30 a.m.
