FREDERICK, Md.--Junior Andrew Bodine of the men's swim team and first-year Hayley Rogers of the women's swim team have been selected as the Hood College athletes of the week for the week ending Feb. 19.
At the three-day Capital Athletic Conference championship hosted by St. Mary's College (Md.), Bodine had a hand in eight school records and Rogers staked her claim as one of the fastest sprinters in Hood women's swimming history by taking down both the 50 and 100 free school records.
Bodine, from Frederick, registered school records in four individual events and was part of four record-setting relays. He qualified for the championship final and set school records in both the 100 free and the 400 IM and swam in the consolation final of the 200 IM with another record-setting time. In addition, he also rewrote the school record in the 200 free in a time trial on the final day of the meet. Bodine anchored three record-setting relays (400 free, 800 free and 200 medley) and swam the butterfly leg of the record-setting 400 medley relay.
A native of Jefferson, Md., Rogers swam the second-fastest time in the 50 free preliminary field of 31 entrants and ended up taking fourth in the championship final with a clocking of 24.88 in both races. That time marked the first time in program history that a Blazer swimmer has cracked the 25-second barrier in that event. Later that day, she anchored the record-setting 200 free relay team. Rogers won the consolation final in the 100 back on the second day of competition, just 0.06 seconds off school record pace, and finished seventh in the championship heat of the 100 free on Sunday. She capped the meet by leading off the 400 free relay with a record-setting swim of 54.91, breaking one of the oldest records on the books which was previously set by 2009 Athletic Hall of Fame Kathleen King '87 in 1985.
Hood finished fifth in the men's team standings and the Blazer women placed sixth.
