Andy Baker of the men's golf team and Jessy Burke from the equestrian team are the Hood College Athletes of the Week for Apr. 11, 2016.
Baker shot a 78 to lead Hood at the Elizabethtown Blue Jay Classic played on the par-71, 6,207-yard Hershey Country Club East course. The sophomore tied for 12th out of 107 golfers and helped Hood tie for sixth in a field of over 20 teams.
Burke made history by being the first member in Hood College equestrian program history to make it to Nationals. She placed second in her intermediate over fences class which sealed her ticket to the IHSA National Championships in Lexington, Kentucky, the first week of May.
