Andrew Drum of the men's cross country team and Payton Belella of the women's volleyball team are the first Hood College Athletes of the Week of the 2015-16 year.
Drum ran his third fastest 8000-meter time with a 28:37.41 at the Dutchmen Invitational at Lebanon Valley. Not only was it one of his fastest career runs, but it ranks 43rd in Hood's top 50 times.
Belella had a debut week to remember, dishing out 112 assists in five matches. Her 41 assists against Methodist are the most by a Blazer freshman and tied for the fourth-most all-time in a match at Hood. She was named to the all-tournament team at the East. Mennonite Invitational.
