FREDERICK, Md.--Junior long distance runner Brett Shelley of the men's track and field team and junior sprinter Megan Cahill of the women's track and field team have been named the Hood College athletes of the week for the week ending April 8.

Shelley, from Landisburg, Pa., went into the record books this past week as he broke the school record in the 10,000 meters. Shelley ran a 33:38.04 to break the record by an 86-second margin. The junior now owns the school record in the 10,000 meters, the 3,000 meter steeplechase, and the 5,000 meters, all this spring. In addition, Shelley placed second at the McDaniel Twilight Invitational in the 5,000-meter run with a time of 17:38.09.

Shelley looks to continue his fantastic junior campaign this week when the Blazers go to the Delaware Open this Saturday with the meet set to begin at 11 a.m.

Cahill, a two-sport athlete at Hood who is from right here in Frederick, Md., continued to score great times in her sprinting events this past week. Cahill ran a 27.32 to win the 200 meters at McDaniel on Wednesday, her best time of the season. Cahill finished fourth in the 100 and ran legs on the winning 4 x 400 relay and the second-place 4 x 100 relay at McDaniel as well.

Cahill and the Blazers return to action Saturday when they travel to Delaware to compete in the Delaware Open at 11 a.m.
