Cal State Fullerton junior outfielder Torrie Anderson was named to the All-Big West Conference First Team for the second consecutive season, leading a group of three Titans selected to the 2010 all-league honor roll as selected by the conference's coaches and released on Tuesday afternoon.

Anderson was joined on the list by freshman Gabby Aragon, who earned second-team honors at shortstop, and junior Ari Cervantes, who was selected to the honorable mention squad as a utility player.

Anderson (Castaic, CA/Valencia HS), one of three, two-time first-team selections on this year's list, was one of two Fullerton players to start all 53 games, hitting .287 with a team-best 45 hits, 11 home runs, and 27 RBI. She led the team in nine different offensive categories while also leading the Big West in home runs and total bases (86) along with finishing third with a .548 slugging percentage.

It was almost a mirror image of her sophomore season when she finished the year batting .284 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI en route to all-conference first-team laurels.

Aragon (Garden Grove, CA/Rancho Alamitos HS) earned her first career all-league honor after a solid rookie campaign that saw her bat .288 (second on the team) while starting 41 of the 44 games she appeared in at shortstop. She scored 17 runs (third on the team) to go with four doubles, a triple, a pair of home runs and eight RBI while slugging .438 on the year.

Her 13 multi-hit games were tops on the team as were her seven games with two or more RBI. She had the team's longest hitting streak of the season at eight games and hit .318 in conference play with 19 runs scored, five home runs, and nine runs driven in.

In conference play, Aragon picked up the pace dramatically, batting a team-best .388 to rank fifth in the conference while also ranking among the top 10 hitters in slugging at .571 - good for sixth place.

Cervantes (Tustin, CA/Mater Dei HS) rounded out the 2010 honorees for the Titans, earning honorable mention honors as a utility player. She finished her season batting a team-best .308 with three home runs and 10 RBI while also scoring 10 runs and slugging .455 on the season. In the circle, she finished 6-19 overall (4-6 in 14 appearances in league games) with a 4.68 ERA.
