Scott Bolen and Karina Stetsyuk

Scott Bolen of the men's basketball team and Karina Stetsyuk of the women's track and field team are the Hood College Athletes of the Week for December 5, 2016. 

Bolen led the Blazers in scoring in both games during a 1-1 week, but carried Hood down the stretch in its MAC Commonwealth win over Alvernia. With 39 seconds left and the game tied at 69-69, Bolen scored and was fouled to propel the Blazers to a 76-73 win over Alvernia. It was the first of seven points Bolen scored in the final 39 seconds of the game on his way to a game-high 23 points. In a 61-60 loss to Lycoming, Hood's first loss of the year, he led the Blazers with 13 points, including a 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left that pulled Hood within one.

Stetsyuk had a strong effort in the track and field team's first meet of the indoor season. She ran the third fastest time in the MAC this season and finished third in the 5,000-meter run at 20:33.84. She also took seventh in the mile run with a time of 5:57.31.
