The American Rivers Conference has announced that Luther College freshman pitcher John Colucci III (Darien, Ill./Hinsdale South) has been named the league's Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sunday, April 7, 2019.
This past week, Colucci made his second collegiate start on the mound in game two of a double header against Wartburg College. Colucci faced just 29 batters and tossed a no-hitter with four strikeouts, as Luther defeated Wartburg 7-0 and swept the series.
Colucci has made six appearances this season and is now 2-0 with an ERA of 5.74. Following the sweep of Wartburg the Norse took two of three from Loras College over the weekend and they are now 13-11 overall and 6-2 in American Rivers Conference play.
