Andy Baker of men's golf and field hockey's Jayden Barrick are the Hood College Athletes of the Week for the week ending October 4.
Baker had a pair of top 10 finishes to lead Hood on the links. At Messiah, he came within one stroke of the school record with a 75 to finish tied for fifth. He followed it up by finishing tied for seventh at Susquehanna with a 78. He helped the Blazers shoot a 317 at Messiah, which was the second best team score in school history until it was bumped by a 312 at Susquehanna.
Barrick led Hood with a total of five defensive saves in two contests last week, to move up among the national leaders. She had three in the Blazers' 1-0 loss to Wilson, then added two more against Middle Atlantic Commonwealth foe Lebanon Valley.
