FREDERICK, Md.—Senior Andrew Bodine of the men's swim team and senior Dyanna Prater of the women's basketball team have been named Hood College athletes of the week for the week ending Jan. 27.

Bodine is from right here in Frederick and went to Urbana before coming to Hood. Bodine was recently named MAC Swimmer of the week, as he helped to guide Hood to victory over Penn State-Altoona, 164-62, this past Saturday. In the meet Bodine broke the school record in the 50 free with a time of 22.04. His time was 0.19 better than the previous record from 2009 and with this time he has officially become the fastest swimmer in Hood history.

Bodine also found victory three other times against Penn State-Altoona with triumphs in the 200 free, 200 IM and as part of the 200 medley relay. It appears Bodine is peaking at the right time, as the Middle Atlantic Conferences championships are right around the corner and Bodine appears to be hitting his top form.

Originally from Gaithersburg High School, Prater had a memorable week, as she became just the ninth player in program history to reach 1,000 career points. The special moment happened against Stevenson University this past Wednesday at BB&T Arena. In vintage Prater fashion, she used her speed and got to the rim, where she was fouled and converted the basket to be just one point short of the 1,000-point plateau. Her ensuing free throw got her to 1,000, as she was able to do it in front of the home crowd.

The Blazers did not get the result they wanted against Stevenson, however they were able to make amends with a victory against Arcadia on Saturday afternoon. Prater was once again instrumental in the victory, as she scored ten points and had four assists, while playing 27 minutes. The win was Hood’s third in the conference this season and it helped them to end an eight game losing streak.

Bodine and the men's swim team return to action for the MAC championships, which take place on Feb. 8-10. The women's basketball team and Prater return to action this Wednesday when they hit the road to take on nationally ranked Lebanon Valley. The Commonwealth Conference matchup is set to begin at 6 p.m.
