FOREST, Va. – The Old Dominion Athletic Conference announced its athletes of the week for the week ending January 14 and two Washington and Lee runners were honored.

Sophomore Janey Fugate (Atlanta, Ga./Whitefield Academy) was named the ODAC Indoor Women's Track & Field Athlete of the Week, while junior Agustin Kim (La Habra, Calif./Troy) was selected as the Men's Indoor Track & Field Athlete of the Week.
