PRINCESS ANNE, Md.--Men's basketball senior Troy Snyder (Chicago, Ill.) and junior Gayon Evans (Clarendon, Jamaica) have been named the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Peninsula Regional Medical Center Athletes of the Week for the week ending on March 11th. This is the third straight week and fourth time overall Snyder has been named to this award and the third time for Evans.

Snyder impressed again with two more excellent performances. Against Norfolk State on Monday, Snyder recorded his third straight double-double with 20 points and 13 rebounds. Troy also added three assists in the contest. On senior night last Thursday versus Delaware State, Snyder earned his second 30+ point game, scoring 30 exactly and adding five rebounds in the win over the Hornets, along with two steals and an assist.

Evans enjoyed a stellar weekend of track at the IC4A/ECAC Championships in Boston. She started off by helping her four-person 4x800 relay team to a new school record in that event with a time of 8:57.67. Evans then followed that up with a second place finish in the 60 meter dash finals with a time of 7.40 seconds. However, it was her performance in the 200 meter dash that set Evans apart. She won the event with a time of 23.36 seconds, not only breaking the six-year-old school record, but setting a new record for the ECAC in the 200 meter dash.

Snyder and the men's team will head to the MEAC tournament for a first-round game versus Norfolk State in Norfolk, Va. on Monday, tipping off at 6:30pm. Evans and those on the track team who qualified will head to the NCAA Indoor Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. this weekend.
