LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior setter Christine Gladysz (Palm Harbor, Fla./Berkeley Prep) has been named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Volleyball Player of the Week for the week ending October 30. It marks the third time this season that she has garnered the award.

Gladysz helped lead the Generals to a 4-1 week by averaging 14.0 assists, 3.36 digs, 1.29 blocks, 0.93 aces and 0.86 kills per game in four matches played. She was named the tournament MVP of the Centre Halloween Bash over the weekend.
