Over his four years with the Chargers, Alex has amassed a number of awards. The 6'7" middle is a two-time CCAA National Scholar Athlete and Academic All-Canadian, a two-time PACWEST First-Team All-Star and Academic Excellence recipient, Rookie of the Year and, three-time Men's Volleyball Athlete of the Week.
Over the February 6-7 weekend, Alex was instrumental in leading the Chargers to two tough four-set victories against the Capilano University Blues (Fri: 21-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-19; Sat: 22-25, 25-19, 25-12, 25-19).
"Capilano served lights out, dug some fantastic hits from our attackers and played with the resolve of a team fighting for a spot in the post-season," states Chargers Men's Volleyball Head Coach Charles Parkinson. "I'm very proud of the way our guys responded to the challenge by raising the level of their play. As he has done all season, Alex Sadowski was a tower of strength and steadiness in the middle for the Chargers and his speed, size, and blocking presence made the hitters question their shots. He scored 32 points on the weekend, including 19 kills, 8 blocks and five aces. Although his numbers alone are worthy of Athlete of the Week consideration, his aces don't reflect his many other serves that put the Blues on their heels and forced them to give up easy over-passes, and his eight blocks don't reflect his contributions that allowed Camosun to attack in transition. Alex is one of the premiere players in the PACWEST and continues to show it consistently with his stellar performances."
The Chargers men advance to #2 in the PACWEST standings with 14 wins and 6 losses. With only two weeks of competition remaining, the Chargers will be striving to stay in the Top 2 to get the first round bye at the PACWEST Provincial Championships hosted by Camosun College.
