Andy Baker of the men's golf team and Rachel Knoebel of women's soccer are the Hood College Athletes of the Week for September 26.
Baker shaved three strokes off the school record when he shot a 71 at the Elizabethtown Invitational. The junior had three birdies on the day. One was on the par 5, 493-yard first hole. The others were on a pair of par 4 holes: the 385-yard ninth hole and the 374-yard 11th hole. Several days later, he shot an 80 at Gettysburg to average 75.5 for the week.
Knoebel made five saves to shutout Wesley during a 0-0 double overtime tie. The Blazers held Division III's leading goal scorer, Aleya Cummings, to just a single shot on goal in the contest. Hood is just the second opponent all season to hold the freshman off the scoreboard.
