FREDERICK, Md.—Senior Brett Shelley of the men’s cross country team and freshman Lauren Fogarty of the women’s swimming team have been named Hood College athletes of the week for the week ending Nov. 12.
Shelley finished off a remarkable senior season and cross country career at the Mideast Regional over the weekend. Originally from Landisburg, Pa., and a product of West Perry High School, Shelley ran in a very challenging 8000-meter race that had a remarkable 343 finishers on Saturday. Shelley finished in 27:51 to get 110th in the race, which was the highest place finish in the Mideast regional in Hood history. The race was Shelley’s 33rd overall race to tie him for second all-time in races run in a Blazer uniform. Shelley leaves the program having run six of the fastest times in program history and garnering all-MAC status by finishing 19th at the conference championship.
Fogarty, who is from Arnold, Md., and went to Broadneck High School, had a very memorable meet for the Blazers over the weekend. Fogarty broke the school record in the 200 free with a time of 2:02.63, breaking a 27-year-old school record. Fogarty finished third in the race and will look to add onto the already impressive time. She also won the 100 breast with a time of 1:12.68 and swam a season-best in the 50 fly with a time of 28.17.
Hood (5-3, 3-3 MAC) next travels to King's (Pa.) Saturday for a MAC dual meet.
