|Position:||Assistant Coach (3rd Season)|
Cal State Fullerton assistant coach Michelle Anunciation returns to the Titans' dugout in 2010 for her third season as an assistant on Michelle Gromacki's staff and her fifth season overall with the program.
Anunciation spent two seasons as Cal State Fullerton's volunteer assistant coach before assuming her full-time position in August, 2007.
Among her many duties in her five seasons with the Titans, Anunciation has focused her efforts mainly on the development of Fullerton's slap hitters as well as working with the infielders on defense.
During her time working with the Titans, Anunciation has helped Fullerton's defense set a school record for fielding percentage (.972 in her first season as a volunteer assistant in 2006) and post the second-highest mark in school history in 2007 with a .971 fielding percentage. Both percentages ranked second in the Big West Conference in their respective seasons.
Anunciation joined the Titans' coaching staff following a brilliant four-year playing career (2002-05) at Big West Conference rival Pacific, earning all-conference honors three times with the Tigers.
As a senior, Anunciation earned first-team all-conference laurels and second-team National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-West Region honors after hitting .365 with four home runs and a career-high 40 RBI. She was named Big West Player of the Week for three consecutive weeks in 2005, marking the first time in the history of the league that a player had accomplished that feat.
Anunciation was a second-team all-conference honoree following her junior season, hitting .341 (third on the team) while tying for sixth in the league in hits (62) and tied for fourth in stolen bases (12). She earned honorable mention honors as a freshman after hitting .338 in conference games and finishing the year tops on the Tigers with 38 runs scored overall.
She finished her four-year career with the Tigers ranked in the top 10 in numerous categories including batting average (.306), runs scored (118), hits (196), doubles (34), RBI (97), and walks (74).
A native of Chino Hills, Calif., Anunciation prepped at nearby Diamond Bar HS where she was a four-year letter winner and a three-time All-Sierra League first-team honoree.
Anunciation, who graduated from Pacific in 2005 with a degree in sports sciences and a teaching credential in physical education, is married to Cal State Fullerton Assistant Athletics Director Aaron Tapper and the couple resides in Chino Hills.
