Colditz was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Player of the Week on Monday, then he took North Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors on Tuesday. The sophomore had a big showing for the Lions last weekend, when his team went 3-0 in a trio of NEAC matches at Mount Aloysius College.
In a 3-2 win over Wells College on Saturday afternoon, Colditz tied his season-high kills total with 21 while adding nine digs and one block assist. In a 3-0 win over SUNY Polytechnic Institute on Sunday, he put up 17 kills, four digs, and one solo block. Later that day, during his team's 3-0 victory over Keuka College, Colditz had 12 kills, eight digs, and one solo block.
On the week, Colditz totaled 50 kills (4.55 kills per set), 21 digs (1.91 digs per set), and 52.5 points (4.8 points per set). This is the first-ever ECAC weekly award earned by Colditz.
