Clay Smith of the men's soccer team and Elena Zinaich of the volleyball team are the Hood College Athletes of the Week for October 10, 2016.
Smith, a freshman foward, scored the game-winner in a pair of road conference victories last week. After scoring the difference maker in a mid-week contest at Stevenson, he followed it up with his second career multi-goal game at Arcadia. He scored the game-winner in the first half, then iced the game in 83rd minute for his second goal of the evening.
Zinaich had 31 kills and hit .352 in three matches last week. She had 11 kills and zero errors in 27 attempts against Messiah. The sophomore middle hitter had 12 kills and four blocks against Marywood. She turned in a double-double with 14 kills (and just one error) and 10 digs against Goucher.
