Murphy and Wood Named ASC Athletes of the Week
Cross Country runner Tara Murphy (Rochester/Wilson) and football player John Wood (Rochester/East) have been named the ASC Athletes of the Week by the Sports Information department.
Murphy led the #1 ranked Lady Pioneers with a 38th place finish at the Houghton College Invitational. She finished the 5k course as the top NJCAA runner in a race featuring mostly 4-year school competition in 20:02.77. ASC finished in 10th place in the competition.
Wood had a great day defensively and on special teams as the Pioneers sent the homecoming crowd home happy with a 49-27 victory over Stevens Tech. Wood led the team with nine tackles but accumulated 177 yards on four kick-off returns. His return of 50-yards to start the 2nd half led to a touchdown one play later and his return of 87-yards for a score silenced any comeback hopes by Stevens.
