Golfer Kristian Aslanian and football wideout Carl Stokes have been named Defiance College Student-Athletes of the Week for their performances last weekend for the Yellow Jackets!

Aslanian (Trenton, Mich.) finished in the 12th position at last weekend's Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship meet, hosted by Transylvania (Ky.) University. Aslanian shot a first-round 83, followed by an 84 on day two to finish with a two-day total of 167 strokes. DC finished in the eighth position as a team in the tournament.

Stokes (Merrillville, Ind./East Chicago Central) had six catches for a career-high 131 yards in Defiance's 45-0 blowout victory over Anderson (Ind.) University on Saturday. For the second straight week, Stokes finished with over 100 yards receiving, as he now sits at 505 yards on the season with three games to play. DC has this Saturday off before returning to action on Saturday, Oct. 28 against Hanover (Ind.) College. The game is set for 1:30 p.m. at Justin F. Coressel Stadium.
